Permuted Press Releases New Sci-Fi Epic Novel
by BWW News Desk - Sep 24, 2014

Permuted Press, the leading publisher of zombie and horror fiction, today announced the publication of 'Torrance,' Book One of Scars of Tomorrow written by Tom Calen, author of the bestselling series The Pandemic Sequence. The story is set over one hundred years in the future and focuses on the harsh control of a one-world government and the global citizens it dominates through both force and guile. 'Torrance' is the first book in a series. Permuted Press will publish the sequel, The Ignota, in October 2014. From the Back Cover: In 2163 C.E., the absolute power of the Global Alliance is beginning to unravel. The first Threads tugged are small, but possess the potential to undo the tapestry-a tapestry woven two millennia ago in deep shadow and bloody conspiracy. Few remember its origin, and none know the role one man will play. A man who would become both savior and enslaver. A man from the woods. A man named Torrance. Michael L. Wilson, president of Permuted Press, expressed excitement for both Torrance and the small press's exploration of a new genre. 'Permuted is known as the premier publisher of zombie and post-apocalyptic fiction. But, we are looking to expand our horizons. Tom's The Pandemic Sequence was an Amazon bestseller in both horror and in science-fiction series,' Wilson said. 'We think 'Torrance' and the future books in the Scars of Tomorrow series fit perfectly into our genre expansion. Readers have made it clear they enjoy Tom Calen's work, and they won't be disappointed in 'Torrance'. Tom really delivered an exciting epic.' 'Pure science-fiction is a bit of a departure for me, but I am really proud of this saga,' stated author Tom Calen. 'In 'Torrance', we get a look at a future where some of the most sinister conspiracies theories of our time turn out to be true. The readers who enjoyed my horror series did so because of the characters. If they venture into this dystopian future with me, I know they will find characters to love, and characters they will love to hate.' Permuted Press was established in 2004 with a modest goal: to produce a single, high-quality zombie anthology titled The Undead. From this simple goal grew a publishing company that has published over 80 titles targeting the apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic, and survival horror fiction markets. Permuted Press has relied heavily on the power of the internet and advances in publishing technology to establish itself as one of the best known publishers in the apocalyptic niche. Tom Calen is the author of the bestselling horror series The Pandemic Sequence, as well as the dystopian future series The Scars of Tomorrow. His books, 'The Tilian Virus' and 'The Tilian Effect' reached #1 on Amazon's bestselling science-fiction series list, and was the #1 Hot New Release in both horror and science-fiction. A New York City native, Tom holds a degree in English and worked in the business world before abandoning all reason and deciding to write full-time. He currently lives in Nicaragua, where he is working on his seventh book. For a review copy of 'Torrance,' or to request an interview or more information, please contact press@TomCalen.com.

Luxembourg & Dayan Presents THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE, 8/14-10/4
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2014

In Luis Buñuel's 1977 film “That Obscure Object of Desire,” the hero lusts after a tantalizing and elusive woman. His obsession spirals out of control, clouding his judgment and ultimately leading him to a state of utter submissiveness. Borrowing the title of Buñel's film, Luxembourg & Dayan is pleased to present an exhibition that explores the dark side of desire, highlighting the often-suppressed connection between an artwork and a fetishized object. The process of object making is here explored as an obsessive endeavor akin in its intensity to erotic infatuation. Each of the artists represented in That Obscure Object of Desire is continuously drawn to forms, processes, and materials with bodily connotations that oscillate between the sexual and the abject, reworked in countless variations.

Ocean Galleries Features Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz at Gallery Receptions, 8/29
by BWW News Desk - Aug 20, 2014

One is a Master of Contemporary Realism, while the other paints realistic masterpieces that incorporate Threads of Classicism, Romanticism, and Impressionism. Together, the two talented and world-renowned artists, Thomas Stiltz and Viktor Shvaiko, bring a collection of breathtaking paintings for one extraordinary exhibition at Ocean Galleries (9618 Third Avenue, Stone Harbor, NJ) over the Labor Day weekend. 'Wine and Romance - the Evocative Images of Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz' opens at the gallery on Friday, August 29, 2014 and runs through Sunday, August 31, 2014. In addition to viewing this exceptional collection, gallery goers will have the chance to meet Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz at Ocean Galleries receptions from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, August 29, Saturday, August 30, and Sunday, August 31, 2014. The exhibit, which will remain on display through Sunday, September 7, 2014, is free and open to the public, with all artwork available for acquisition. Often described as a Master of Contemporary Realism, Thomas Stiltz brings a collection of his still life paintings to the gallery for the Labor Day showing. His long career as a professional photographer has greatly influenced Stiltz's unique painting methods, where he uses old world techniques to apply numerous layers of oil paints, each composed of thin, colorful glazes. Whereas painters usually start with a fixed canvas size and fill it with objects, a photographer uses cropping techniques to express an image or scene. Stiltz often leaves space around the objects he paints, allowing 'air' to flow through the images. Best known for his wine paintings, Stiltz's works feature brilliant color, sparkling realism, and quality of light. In addition to the collection of art that will be on display, Stiltz will custom paint a favorite bottle of wine for clients. He begins by photographing the wine with various arrangements and settings, with the buyer able to select a favorite image before the actual painting occurs. All custom artwork can be framed by Ocean Galleries, well known throughout the Southern New Jersey area for their exquisite framing. The gallery selected each frame for the Stiltz and Shvaiko exhibition. Viktor Shvaiko paints in a realistic manner that defies neat labeling, incorporating Threads of Classicism, Romanticism, and Impressionism into a signature style that is unique and instantly recognizable. Built on a firm foundation of academic training acquired through the disciplines of Russian art schools, Shvaiko has fused many influences into his work to arrive at his current approach to painting. Years ago, Shvaiko fled the painful oppression of his homeland, Russia, with just his paintings strapped to his back. Winding up in Italy, Shvaiko was forced to sell his paintings to survive. After years of struggling, it wasn't until his relocation to New York City in the early 1990s that his dream of living as an artist began to materialize. Since that time, Shvaiko has become one of the most desired painters of the twenty-first century. His breathtaking scenes of Mediterranean landscapes and European villages are intensely focused creations that capture the subtle qualities of sunlight, shadows, and shades of color. 'I love the beauty and detail that are evident in each of Shvaiko's paintings,' said Kim Miller, owner of Ocean Galleries. 'Similarly, Stiltz's paintings, although quite different in style, evoke great detail and encourage the viewer to examine the underlying structure of familiar forms. We are thrilled to share this amazing collection of artwork with the community over Labor Day weekend.' This exhibition represents the second time the artists will visit Ocean Galleries, which has represented the artists and carried their artwork for over 10 years. 'Wine and Romance - the Evocative Images of Viktor Shvaiko and Thomas Stiltz' includes original artwork and limited editions by the two artists, all of which are custom framed by Ocean Galleries and available for acquisition. The collection will be on display at Ocean Galleries (9618 Third Avenue, Stone Harbor, NJ) on Friday, August 29 through Sunday, August 31, 2014, with receptions from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, August 29, Saturday, August 30, and Sunday, August 31. The exhibition is free and open to the public, with artwork remaining on display through Sunday, September 7, 2014. The Stone Harbor gallery is open from 10:00 AM until 10:00 PM daily during the summer season. For more or directions, call 609-368-7777 or visit OceanGalleries.com For over 25 years, Ocean Galleries has provided quality art by contemporary artists to their clients while practicing the highest standards of credibility and integrity in a comfortable and unpretentious atmosphere.
