A 7" vinyl single presented in handprinted woodcut cover depicting a seal from The Black Pullet grimoire, a booklet discussing the aetiology of our hermetic dictum "Black Harvest", and a tarot card from the Egyptian deck. It is your card to guide you through all your nekyias of 2013.
A pessimistic road trip, taking in corpse paths and the sacrificial king's Journada Del Muerto; the new single recites Rune poems from Danby church in Yorkshire where the lychgate seers would watch at the porch for the procession of the future dead. In our context the voyant's watch is a socio-occult metaphor for a darkening land riven by psychic malaise. The single is also a harbinger for the 2013 research project "Wish You Were Heretic".

English Heretic is delighted to announce the delivery of Wyrd Tales 2: a salvaged miscegenation of occult pulp, speculative meta-fiction, neolithic fantasy and mythic sci-fi.

Wyrd Tales 1
With twisting and fateful reports reflected in an obsidian mirror, woven by the very hands of the Norns, Wyrd Tales recounts the actual waking nightmares experienced by the staff of English Heretic as they conduct their uncanny investigations. Comprising over two years of research, field visits and pathworkings, Wyrd Tales also surveys the geography of creative inspiration, extrapolating outrageous and vertical asymptotes for future imaginative discourse .Indeed, Wyrd Tales is intended both as an exciting escape from the tyranny of fact and as a practical ordnance survey of our country's psychohistorical contours.
We visit the haunts of Matthew Hopkins, the parishes of his victims, the desolate and ravenous bays of Daphne Du Maurier. We excavate among the gnostic ruins of M.R. James and drink in the ojas of Austin Spare's London. From our nation’s unconscious libraries we unearth hallucinatory and hermetic monographs. We discover the lost reels of a Frazerian horror film and catalogue the fantastic occult pathologies that ferment from a racial memory of zealot’s purge and war time trauma.
To complement and animate the magazine, Wyrd Tales comes with a 70 minute CD containing documentary evidence of our imaginal interpenetrations. Culled from phonographic recordings, in situ improvisations and studio distillations, these aural commentaries provide the finest synaesthetic liqueur to accompany your fireside readings of this Albionic Al Azif.
92 pages, Black and White artwork throughout, 4 page colour spread, colour cover.
