Transubstantiation and Annihilation - New Book by Thomas Sheridan

Proceeds from the sale of Transubstantiation and Annihilation will go to Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind.

"In Transubstantiation and Annihilation, artist Thomas Sheridan has put together an assemblage of words and images from his private journals and sketchbooks representing over twenty years of personal observation and thoughts concerning life and society. Covering everything from his fictional short stories based on growing up on the Northside of Dublin during the 1970’s, to satirical observations, along with essays on subjects ranging from everyday psychopaths, the destruction of the Irish landscape, allegories within popular culture, the human pineal gland to the meaning behind terms such as “Magic” and “Art”. The images range from photographs, to illustrations and even doodles, all of which are all previously unpublished. Pages from the author’s personal dream journals, and even astronomical observations are reproduced in Transubstantiation and Annihilation."

fosebook: summer 2010, now in paperback!

fosebook: summer 2010 is now available in full-color paperback. The print version looks beautiful! A bit expensive, yes unfortunately. The reason is the high color print costs. We have done our best to get the price down, by rearranging the format and keeping the royalty low. Hope you enjoy this wonderful book.

my eBook

flowers of arsenic and the second membrane

This is my bizarre book. I was hoping that people would find it so distasteful that it would become a notorious urban legend. Or perhaps that’s just me having hubris. Oh what the heck, I can always dream about it and pretend to be more important than I might be in reality.

Novels by Pisces Iscariot

Unlike many men who when they turn 40 end up with a shiny new motorbike or a new wife, I ended up writing. The Aeon Calling is my first completed novel. It was followed by Markov Chain (which you can read for free) and Decaying Orbits, which I am in the process of writing.

I remember, as a teenager, being infatuated with a girl to the extent that my days were filled with an imaginary life which involved her and only her. The only problem seemed to be that she barely noticed me.
The Aeon Calling draws on all of those feelings and extrapolates them into an adult context. After the death of his mother Alex Brown is driven by the Tarot; by political circumstance, and by the demons of his infatuation with his cousin to pursue her across the world, his mind becoming more and more unravelled the further outward he travels from the one woman who does love him.

A state of mind

We are only what we believe ourselves to be…
  • Martha Gabriel, not content to accept the fading of her husband’s faculties to Alzheimer-like symptoms, finds herself questioning her life as she witnesses his bizarre compulsions.
  • John Gabriel is somewhere else; an island of archetypes; demons and gods; an culture of forgetting.
  • An 18th century pilgrim trapped and alone on a ghost ship with only the wood and his harrowing guilt as company.
  • A red haired man with a violent and cynical tenant in the recesses of his mind struggles to deny all responsibility for that which is done in his name.
  • A man in a bubble resorts to using the memory of pain to reconstruct his life.
…and they will all come to the place where they believe they should be.

Markov Chain works on the philosophical premise that tomorrow’s revelations can only be determined by today’s perceptions.
