The second micro-anthology from Sidekick Books contains poems and artwork inspired by traditional Japanese monsters. The title is a portmanteau of ‘panorama’ and obakemono
(お化け物), the Japanese word for a changed or perverted thing (with the prefix お denoting respect). Accordingly, there lurk within its pages long-necked and long-tongued demons, winged dogs, mysterious children hiding in umbrellas, amphibious tricksters, killer scarves, cloud apparitions and numerous other age-old horrors of myth and legend.
Features new poems and illustrations by:
Amy Blakemore, David Floyd, Mary Graham, Aiko Harman, Hanne Harkonen, Kirsten Irving, Jd, Roddy Lumsden, Seb Manley, Ian McLachlan, Adham Smart, Wayne Holloway-Smith, Darnae ‘Crimsonwolf’ Sobolewski, Mike Stone, Richard Watt and Chrissy Williams.
