About Me

My photo
Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870. The "xothique" portion of the web address is a nod to Clark Ashton Smith's fictional continent of Zothique.

Oddities 7

More Oddities -- the very last issue I believe, from the zine's roughly six year life. Inventive display of fonts on the cover, and a dream piece by myself which is merely ok. More noteworthy than "The Hermit" is a portion of a sketch of the surrealist poet Robert Desnos and some of the other artwork on the margin. Eventually I plan to get all 7 issues posted, out of sequence though the process may be (and I've also misplaced one or two issues).

Hell, back in the depths of time, back in 1987, the "internets" were known only to people in the company and other covert types! The Soviet Union still looked like a viable concern... And how about the Faroese?
