Now Available: Memento Mori: The Fathomless Shadows

Brian Hauser’s Memento Mori: The Fathomless Shadows hits the streets today, and we think you’re going to love it. Here’s just some of the praise for Memento Mori: The Fathomless Shadows so far…

Memento Mori: The Fathomless Shadows by Brian Hauser

“…an engrossing, baffling horror debut that veers hard into the weird […]. Fans of the uncanny (and especially of Robert W. Chambers’s The King in Yellow, to which this work alludes) will find much to love and laud.” —Publishers Weekly

“Brian Hauser has crafted a tense, readable ride down a rabbit-hole that goes straight to Carcosa. […] The result is a book that feels vital, as deeply connected to people as it is genre.” –Carson Winter for Signal Horizon

“I want to tell you about Brian Hauser’s Memento Mori. I want to tell you about the fanzine that reopened the door, and the memoir, and the lost films. I want to tell you about the medium being the message. How that message is transmitted, and how it can be transformed through translation into different–new media. How the message is corrupt and corrupting, infected and infectious. I want to tell you about Tina Mori, and C.C. Waite and the disappearance of Billie Jacobs. I want to tell you these things and how they all spiraled together into a coherent wave of madness. But I can’t. Brian Hauser won’t let me. It’s not my place. I have seen–but you must see–must read–for yourself. Come and see. Say that you will. Please. Will you come?” –Pete Rawlik, editor of The Chromatic Court

“Brian Hauser’s Memento Mori is a mysterious deep dive into the dark waters connecting underground film, music and weird fiction. A fascinating blend of found footage, lost writings, and incantations, Memento Mori leaves its imprint on your psyche.” –John Palisano, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Ghost Heart, President of The Horror Writers Association
