New Zine. My third this year! 'Ghost Stories I Remember' is a graphic narrative. It contains around 16 half-recalled encounters with the supernatural.
Each memory begins with the words 'I Remember'. Inspired by artist Joe Brainard's wonderful experimental memoir 'I Remember'. I originally considered making a longform autobiographical work using the 'I Remember' approach and adding a visual component by illustrating each 'I Remember'.
However, I decided no-one really wanted to read my autobiography and that I was not even sure I wanted to write my autobiography. Even still, the 'I Remember' concept still interested me and I decided to focus it on a particular subject rather than make an all encompassing biographical work.
I have always had a degree of interest in the supernatural which in recent years has been fed by podcasts like Unexplained (I was lucky enough to interview Richard Maclean Smith for an event a few years ago) and Uncanny.
'Ghost Stories I Remember' is published by Colossive Press and can be ordered here...
