Oozing into a bookstore near you at the end of September, Slime Dynamics by Ben Woodard…
“…slime is more often than not relegated to a mere residue the trail of a verminous life form, the trace of decomposition, or an entertaining synthetic material [...] this text explores naturephilosophie, speculative realism, and contemporary science; hyperbolic representations of slime found in the weird texts of H.P. Lovecraft and Thomas Ligotti; as well as survival horror films, video games, and graphic novels, in order to present the dynamics of slime not only as the trace of life but as the darkly vitalistic substance of life.”
