Founding editors Nadya Lev, Zoetica Ebb, and Meredith Yayanos launched a Coilhouse blog in 2007, and published the first magazine issue in 2008. To date there have been five issues of Coilhouse, each a solid book filled cover to cover with articles and interviews and stunning photography. Every issue has sold out — though as of this week, back issues are temporarily available in PDF form!

Zoetica Ebb: I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of hidden life, a world beneath (or above, or within) the commonly available surface. What began as a peculiar, introverted kid’s rejection of the norm in run-down Communist Russia in favor of the enigmatic, the fantastical and the beautiful, became a quest for something better. An internal quest at first; devouring age-inappropriate books by the bed-ful, being introduced to dark Russian folklore and somber Byzantine temples by my mother. My imagination swelled to absurd proportions.

COLOSSUS revisted

“Every effort to sabotage Colossus ends in disaster, with those involved paying the price that is encapsulated in the computer’s ultimate choice:  live in peace, under my control, or die.”

“I am still giddy from our last session, where we did a tribute to Neil Gaiman’s great gift to graphic literature and serialized storytelling The Sandman. The titular Sandman was not represented (as he wasn’t for the bulk of the comic, in fact), but we did have models channeling five of his siblings, the Endless – Death, Desire, Delirium, Destiny, and Destruction.  I was Destiny.  There is no photographic evidence of this, but if you flip a few pages back in Destiny’s book, there is an account of me chaining a book to my wrist, then having to unchain it so that I could put my robe on, then chaining it back.  As for the Endless that anyone cares about, Lauren Goldberg has provided pictures of Stoya, Johnny Blazes, and Tess Aquarium as Death, Desire, and Delirium respectively.”

Wow, where’d you find that Colossus logo? Awesome, man. Thanks so much. Cool to be present as that was evolving.
