Teaser For An Upcoming Project

"What is Fire Yrecken?"

Fire Yrecken is a little bundle of monthly randomness to be published on the 1st of each month. It will include such items as flash fiction pieces, editorials, historical essays, poetry, photography, and reviews.

Fire Yrecken is sponsored by Into the Ravenous Maw, the blog of Patrick Stahl. Most of the content of each issue will be produced by Stahl. (Yes, he is currently writing in the third-person.) All photography is supplied by Staff Photographer Zachary Shenal.

There is no proper term to describe Fire Yrecken. Call it a creative experiment, if you must call it by anything other than its proper name. It is composed through a modification of Microsoft Publisher’s Business Newsletter template, though it is hardly a newsletter, as you shall see if you read on.

If Fire Yrecken seems quirky, Stahl is doing his job well.


  1. This is awesome, I'm looking forward to these!

    1. Thanks! I'll try to get the first issue out for October.

  2. Sounds exciting! Roll on Fire Yrecken! (Is that a yuh sound or an i sound?)

    1. It's from the Canterbury Tales. It appears to either be a long "I" or a long "E." I've been pronouncing it as the latter, so like the French "I" or the last "y" in "ysbyty."
