New book

Here is a message from Troy about it:

To all my French/English speaking friends, I’m happy to announce that I made a new book for you. It’s called “Caution! Poison Snake! No Entry!”
This book is special because it features the drawings of James Kroll (Bass of Chokebore) and preface + photos by Mathias Malzieu (Singer of Dionysos/Author/Film maker)
It’s a fun and intense book of short stories, flash fiction, and warped lyrics.
The book is in French and English (I’m super happy about this).

“Caution! Poison Snake! No Entry!” will be in the shops in France on April 1st but you can buy it now from Eidola Editions right here.
