Gary Hill Releases Final Book of Wormwood Chronicles Articles
Released on April 9th, "The Dark Starr Files 3: Articles Originally Published At Wormwood Chronicles - Volume 3" features articles that originally appeared in the ezine "Wormwood Chronicles."
By: Gary Hill
The concept of the series (as the descriptions of the books say) is this: "From 1998 until the end of 2018 Gary Hill contributed articles to a zine called 'Wormwood Chronicles under the pen-name 'Dark Starr.' Now that the zine has ceased publication it seemed a good idea to archive all the articles." The final book in the series (which includes all of Hill's CD and music video reviews for artists whose names start with the letters "l" through "z," will be published on April 9th. .
Wormwood Chronicles was the creation of Rockford writer Mike Korn under the pseudonym "Dr. Abner Mality." It started as an print zine distributed regionally. It eventually shifted to the web and continued to flourish. In 2018 Korn made the decision to end Wormwood Chronicles by the end of the year. While the site remains at wormwoodchronicles.com, there are no new articles being published there now.
Hill made the decision to publish the articles as books to preserve them in the event of the future complete demise of the website. Hill has been publishing Music Street Journal (musicstreetjournal.com)
The new book (as the first one) is available in paperback at lulu.com/strangesound and will be soon at Amazon.com and other book retailers. A hardcover edition of each is available exclusively at lulu.com/strangesound.
