c is for cat
The Omikuji Anthology will come out on April 1st--I'm getting into wrangling all the details now.

Here, after much requesting, is a list of all the Omikuji stories, so that you can see if you missed any, and also call dibs for the anthology! (Please call said dibs in the comments. All art would need to reproduce well in black and white and be in by March 1st. Anyone who wants to do an audio recording of a story, dib that too, and if there are musicians, we could do an audiobook + soundtrack! It's all up to you guys--this is your project.)

We'll be starting the round-robin introduction soon over at omikuji_project .

The Glass Gear--art called by fireriven 
A Hole to China Pt.1
A Hole to China Pt. 2
A Hole to China Pt. 3
The Kunstkammer of Dr. Ampersand
How to Build a Ladder to the Sun in Six Easy Steps--audio called by triskelmoon, art called by dynix 
The Pine Witch Counts Her Knuckle Bones
The Legend of Good Women--art called by hokuton_punch 
That Which Lets the Light In--art and audio called by upstart_crow
A Postcard from the End of the World--art called by hoshikaze 
How to Raise a Minotaur--art called by thanate , audio still open
The Economy of Clouds
The Still
The Wedding
Reading Borges In Buenos Aires--art and audio called by caudelac 
The Folklore of Sleep--art called by sheistheweather, audio called by antongarou 
Oh, the Snow-Bound Earth, the Golden Moon!
Three Husbands Come to Gorokhovaya Street--audio called by greektoomey , art still open
The Opposite of Mary
Blue With Those Tears
The Consultant--audio called by shellefly , art still open

Address changeed. Where should I send that info? My email is MnVespera@gmail.com


I want to call dibs on "A Postcard from the End of the World" for artwork. I might be able to get my wire apple tree (in progress) to photograph with a black and white filter, if not I have an idea for a neat illustration.

*wishes she had a decent noir voice* I would record the Consultant, but I'm sure it wouldn't sound good.

Someone called that one already, but I'd love to hear you read another one. I love your voice. Maybe The Wedding? That has all kinds of Seattle shout-outs in it...

Oh, this is exciting!

If input from non-subscribers counts as all -- I would love to see all the stories in the anthology, so that I could get a chance to read them all. I've always been sad that I don't have the guaranteed constant flow of cash for a subscription.

Good because I never have gotten to read "The Glass Gear"!

And I will ponder something properly artistic.

Any way I can do art for Glass Gear?

ETA: Oh yes. And if I can finally get my mic set up, I'd love to try recording That Which Lets the Light In.

Someone called it already. Anything else you liked?

Yep! That Which Lets the Light In :)

Dibs on art for The Kunstkammer of Dr Ampersand.
Or if someone's already called that one, How to Raise a Minotaur.

I'd love to do some art. However I don't know what kind if thing you're looking for.. Paintings or little fused glass items or jewelry... What has been offered in previous packages?

This art is for the anthology, so it has to be something that can either photograph in black and white or be reprinted as such. The rest is up to you.

I don't recognize your email--you do have to be a subscriber to participate in this one. Let me know if you are and I'm just being dense.

I'm not a subscriber but am thinking of going for it. Have been for a while :)
I love your stories, theyare very entertaining and quite deserving of the awards you're up for!
Should the art be themed as the story titles? (tho your stories would be different interpretations than I'd come up with, I'm sure!)

The art goes with the stories and is inspired by them--you can get back issues if you need them!

I'm not a subscriber (meaning as I was to get the anthology) but having read a little of How To Build a Ladder to the Sun in Six Simple Steps on http://catherynnemvalente.com/omikuji/ I cannot get the image of a paper sun on fire, above a bonfire of paper ladders out of my head. It would photograph well, in both colour and black and white, assuming I can put together the components without setting fire to the house.

If I am able to backsubscribe and that counts for eligibility then I'd be delighted to call dibs on the artwork.

I call dibs on the audio for "The Folklore of sleep".

PS.When will preorders be possible?

Not really on topic...

I was just stopping in to let you know our little readers' group on Goodreads is reading In the Night Garden this month. Yay!

I want Reading Borges in Buenos Aries Art and Audio.

Also, I have not gotten a story since 'The Folklore of Sleep', I think. :(

I'll resend my address to you, mebbe?

We have the Queen St address for you, currently. Is that correct?

Nope... hasn't been for some time. I sent the correct one to catherynne at gmail.

Oh, I'd so love to do audio for "Oh, the Snow-Bound Earth, the Golden Moon!".
