The Account of David Stonehouse, Exile (Daniel Mills)
'The Account of David Stonehouse, Exile' takes the form of a diary kept by the titular character over the course of several weeks in the mid-19th Century. David Stonehouse lives alone in an abandoned farmhouse with only a feral hound for a companion. His existence is solitary, nearly hermetic. He believes his soul is dead, his flesh cursed and exiled to the barren mountain valley where he subsists on game and fish where no crops will grow. His past haunts him. Though he has repressed the circumstances of his banishment, he cannot forget them.
Includes full wrap-around cover and three interior illustrations by Steve Santiago. 114 pages. Comes with 8" x 10" print of full cover art. Limited to 150 copies.
