The Spoon Knife Anthology: Thoughts on Compliance, Defiance, and Resistance is the first volume of the annual Spoon Knife anthology from Autonomous Press.
Each volume of Spoon Knife includes new stories by Weird Luck co-creators Andrew M. Reichart and Nick Walker (plus a bunch of other good stories by other authors). This first volume contains Andrew’s story “Testimony of the Teen Ogre” and Nick’s story “Kelly’s Blackbird.”
“Testimony of the Teen Ogre” recounts an incident from the teenage years of Max Swift (AKA Max Warlock), one of the central characters in the Weird Luck Saga and the webcomic. This disturbing glimpse into the character’s backstory offers some answers to the question, “What sort of formative experiences would produce someone like Max?”
“Kelly’s Blackbird” is memoir instead of fiction, and recounts an incident from Nick’s own teenage years. This disturbing glimpse into the author’s backstory offers some answers to the question, “What sort of formative experiences would produce someone who would write a comic like Weird Luck?”
Or, if you’d rather give your business to your local bookstore, bookstores can also order Spoon Knife via the same distribution catalogs they order their other books from. Nick and Andrew love it when people persuade their local bookstores to carry Autonomous Press books.
