Interlude is a small serial publication that will be randomly distributed when you receive mail from Anatomic Air Press. The publication is not for sale. You may also stumble upon them from various zine distributers who are willing to hand them out for free. There isn’t an author or any type of advertisement printed on the Interludes, just a web link that will take you to this page. Everything is written by yours truly.
Each publication is a half sheet of paper 8.5″ x 11″ paper folded into half to make 4 pages (or 2 pages, depending on how you look at it). Each Interlude will feature a very short story; it’s perfect for people who prefer quick and short reading. All Interludes will be archived here for reference. See below for what has been printed/distributed so far.
If you are a distro or someone who wants to help distribute Interlude, please get in touch! I’d be happy to send you a stack for you to include in your letters to friends. They are also perfect to leave in random places. 🙂
Why “Interlude” and where did the inspiration come from?
Since I was a kid buying CD’s in the 90’s, I was always fascinated with the trend in interludes in albums from some of my favorite artists. In albums, interludes aren’t songs; they are typically brief intermissions where artists can express themselves in different ways.
Here are the official definitions of interlude:
A. An intervening episode, feature, or period of time.
B. A short farcical entertainment performed between the acts of a medieval mystery or morality play.
C. A short piece inserted between the parts of a longer composition.
D. An entertainment between the acts of a play.
Growing up with subtle appearances of interludes, it inspired me to create my own “interludes” through my handmade projects. The publications will be short and brief like interludes are meant to be, but it will be presented in my own unique way. I hope you have as much fun stumbling upon the interludes as I do making them! 🙂
