"New Stars" Launch Party Photos

Presenting some unofficial PHOTOS from the event!

Here, Colin & Megan deal with a big crowd around the display table...

And here, the chief architects of the Trees and Hills Sputnik Project reveal their handiwork to the press. The elegant basketball-sized device boasts a gleaming aluminum coating, and a core of unknown composition, possibly enriched candy.

Thanks to Keene's own COMIC BOOM for hosting the event!

Next Appearance: Stars & Skulls Craft Fair 12/1

Moving on from the release party (though photos & sketches should appear at some point), Trees & Hills will have a table at the Stars & Skulls Crafty Craft Fair Saturday, December 1 from 10am-5pm at the American Legion Hall, 162 Russell St., Hadley, MA. Anne Thalheimer and (I think) E.J. Barnes will also have tables.

Trees and Hills Build Satellite

Here are some photos of confirmed Trees and Hills operative Dr. Colin Tedford, hard at work in an undisclosed laboratory location.

Authorities believe Dr. Tedford is constructing some sort of satellite for next weekend's New Stars Release Party!

An anonymous source within the Trees and Hills command hierarchy insists that Dr. Tedford's aims are "totally, totally peaceful... Well, okay, maybe he's gonna fill the satellite with treats and have someone whack it with a stick, but otherwise, TOTALLY peaceful." The same source later confided that Dr. Tedford had contracted with several agencies to purchase Papier Mache technology, and that Trees and Hills agents had collected scrap newspapers from local grocery stores.

How much more evidence do we need?

Anthology Lead & Free Photocopiers

I've just received word of a new quarterly quarter-size anthology called Candy Or Medicine, edited by Josh Blair - not produced in our region, but looking for submissions. Deadline for the next issue is December 10; submission guidelines are here, and you can order Volume One here.

In other news, if you feel you have space for a photocopier, check out the free ones in this NH Craigslist listing, or email me (colintedford at gmail dot com) about the one I rashly got on Freecycle that's too big for my tiny living space. Makes me wish we had a Trees & Hills studio!
