This year’s 6x6 anthology is 32 pages of make-believe.  Children playing, adults deceiving themselves, and one or two heads resting firmly on their pillows, imagining a world they never knew.  

This year as in all the years before, 6 writers came together to spin 6 yarns that were then brought to life by 6 artists.  Each were given 5 pages.  The pairings spark with the magic of a new creative partnership, because none of these creative duos have worked together before.  Each of these stories seems to come easily from out of their minds and onto the pages you hold.  Why?

Because no one knows how to PRETEND… like an artist.

Once a year, there is a great gathering of masters of the mini-verse (two wizards, a pirate, and an albino giraffe). They seek out these scribes and cave painters to find a select few, a lucky dozen to be exact, to bring together new myths and legends.  You will be astounded, entertained, and the true desires of sentient beings shall be revealed…
Everybody’s looking for, fueled by, or led to something; be it love, power, recognition, redemption, revenge, or the meaning of life (it's Mulder’s Apt. #, btw). Often, it’s the gold at the end of the rainbow – a lifelong pursuit of the ever
unattainable. Other times it’s as simple as a photograph, a few circus peanuts, or that lucky paper clip stuffed inthe bottom of your jeans pocket.

The real question is, what happens when they find it? Are their lives fulfilled? Do they find true happiness? Is this great value they seek worth it? What about you? Have you found it yet?  Welcome to the jung…err, desert. A place with endless possibilities, busy city streets, chewing gum on the bottom of shoes, and panoramic views of countryside and sunsets.

A place they call the Valley of Treasure.

"Bodies in Motion"

Written by Randall Kirby and Illustrated by Adrianne Presnell 

The concept was simple: 6 writers, 6 artists, 6 stories, 5 pages each, all from Boise, Idaho and unleashed like a maddened horde upon a single word: Feral. To focus the full force of their fearsome fecundity and stand well back and watch what stunning creations emerge from their nimble and unbecalmed minds. As with many simple ideas, this turned out to be more complicated than expected. This was no natural birthing process, but a c-section, on a sea-tossed ship, heavily taking water. The result? Beastly stories. Dark and haunting stories. Stories shot through with loss and angry nature. Stories of people valiantly struggling with their most devious, their age-old, enemy... Themselves.
