The Tangled Muse

Wilum Pugmire


We worked extensively with Wilum Pugmire on this edition of his best short stories, prose poems, poems, and illustrated tales. The book has a robust and decadent feel. The electrifying contents and superb design make this volume a treasure to read and hold.
      Containing Pugmire’s best stories, prose poems, a small selection of sonnets, and several new pieces, the book is laden with artwork from Virgil Finlay, Aubrey Beardsley, and others. The book also has an insightful introduction by S.T. Joshi and may be the most well-designed and beautiful books we have created thus far. Some page spreads appear below.
      Limited to 150 copies for sale, the book is bound in cloth with handsome printed front and rear panels and protected with a clear Mylar dustjacket. The book has a classy translucent overlay on the title page. Each copy is signed by Wilum Pugmire and S.T. Joshi. Nearly sold out!
