Off-Site Reviews

Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity
[T]his is a world of weights and measures, strange encounters and necromantic cabals, where the key to all secrets is an obtuse and enthralling magazine. Inspired by The Whole Earth Catalog, The New Yorker and Cat Fancy, and by Thomas Pynchon, David Mitchell, and Haruki Murakami, The Seers Catalogue is a game and a story, a garden overgrown with “strange new paths.”

The Verge
Part post-modernist literature, part eerie atmospheric web game
The sound design is also excellent, adding an uneasy air to the whole proceedings even as each individual step draws you farther into the mysterious world of The Seers Catalogue... Partway through the story, you're actually given a digital copy of one of three issues of the actual The Seers Catalogue magazine to peruse, filled with fragments of odd serial stories and strange photos.

[H]aunting and surreal tale
In addition to the prose, “The Seers Catalogue” features illustrations, a functional web form that requests the reader input their personal information, an ambient soundtrack meant to draw the reader in, and other audiovisual elements that enhance the writing as the story unfolds. It also features a “story within a story,” as readers eventually get to read through a copy of the magazine that the narrator is so drawn to.
