Finally, after a long time, something inspired me to write. As before, it is the gorgeous and haunting artwork of Maja Ljunggren.

If the first four parts of Cameron Cloutier’s extension of Twin Peaks mythology were great, this fifth visit to the world both wondrous and strange is simply sublime. It starts with familiar strobe effects, disconcerting slash cuts from one image to the next and a series of uncomfortable, awkward close ups that thrust us into […]

There’s been so much written in the wake of Julee Cruise’s passing that I feel quite superfluous, but it’s amazing how many people are saying the same things that I’m feeling.

Hi everyone, This is my first Twin Peaks poem for quite some time. I had a little fun imagining the possibilities that were brought up on Cameron’s podcast the other day. Wisteria could be anything and I welcome whatever it is. Unfortunately, I couldn’t help myself from wandering into the universe of Twin Peaks, especially […]

It looks like the editing process is proving long and arduous for Cameron Cloutier as he ploughs through raw footage to create his long-awaited Twin Peaks fan film, Queen of Hearts. Having spent years examining and re-examining the 300 pages of my novel, I can appreciate the joy and pain of working on a labour […]
