This edition limited to 107 numbered copies. Sold out on publication. This Mount Abraxas/Ex Occidente title is very beautiful indeed and sports a full-color wrap-around dust jacket along with all the other production bells and whsitles we’ve come to expect from Ex Occidente. “Out among the stars, is where Jake would like to be, even if that means death. On a hiking trip up a Japanese mountain with his friend Sean, is where he is actually going, in an attempt to find a famous-obscure temple from an old story. In the vital wilderness of the mountain slopes, Jake's perceptions are affected. His gaze turns from the future to the past, from the past to the present, and from the present to something... out there. A novella steeped in Japanese folklore, Out There is another of Quentin S. Crisp's explorations of the relevance of traditional Japanese aesthetics in meeting the spiritual challenges of the modern age. Time passes differently in these pages. At some point, if you are lucky, you might find you have taken the wrong turning.” #58814
