The Willows

Heh, pripovedovanje vsega, kar je treba povedati si je iz kronosa vzelo večji presledek od pričakovanega. Vseeno, naprej na našem poslanstvu za svetovno prevlado.

The Willows je revija, ki je pred nedavnim izdala svojo prvo inkarnacijo in naročil sem jo še isti dan. Na žalost je njen prihod trajal nekaj več časa zaradi nekakšne napake na njihovem koncu in ker, kot kaže, sistem za pošiljanje sploh še ni bil vzpostavljen, ko so naročila že sprejemali. Ampak ne zamerim jim, tako ali tako nisem imel časa brata niti, ko je končno prispela.

Izdaja se je ponašala s čudovito črno zunanjostjo z belimi slikarijami in pisarijo in je s svojim pogledom instantno privlačila. Branje me je popeljalo naravnost nazaj v dni Lovecrafta in Poeja, čeprav Poe teoretično ne spada v ta žanr. Zgodbe so predstavljale prav prijeten izbor, moji komplimenti uredniku. Dodatek kratkih poudarjenih citatov v telo zgodbe na vsaki strani je revijo prijetno poživil in ji pridal tisti duh po poznem 19. stoletju.

Najbolj mi je bil pri srcu dodatek ene ali dveh izmišljenih reklam, ki so časovnemu obdobju odlično pristajale. Pristanek na teh straneh je resnično polepšal moj dan, saj so bile postavljene v parodičen ton reklam, ki bi jih taka revija resnično lahko vsebovala. V končni fazi je bila revija prijetna oživitev pozabljenega žanra; druga izdaja bo zagotovo romala v moj poštni nabiralnik. Priporočam vsem, da si priskrbijo svojo.
