Carcosa Collection


None of the creations and offerings from the Carcosa Collection are really... real. They are tributes to the imaginative creators of dark literature and art. They are original renderings, recreations, refurbishments, and repurposing of classic and innovative effects from the realm of performance mystery arts. One of the goals of the Carcosa Collection is to help inspire artists to create things from the realm of dreams, to take old unloved and unused magic apparatus and give them a new purpose.


Dark Dreamers


Items and objects shared or given to colleagues and kindred in the art are offered for the use for mystery performers to help the world confront intractable issues that humans face, educating them and motivating them through interactive narratives. They are not meant for any real “magick” or ritualistic magic.

As part of taking darkness and dismay in the world and transforming it to light and hope, a large percentage of all proceeds for the offerings of the Collection will be given to charity.

Tome Tribute

"They say foul beings of Old Times still lurk in dark forgotten corners of the world, And Gates stll gape to loose, on certain nights, Shapes pent in Hell."

From Unaussprechlichen Kulten

The Book

Thought of the Eon

There is a concept that is the corrupter and destroyer of all others. I speak not of Evil, whose limited empire is that of ethics; I speak of the infinite.

-Jorge Luis Borges
