Landis Holliday is the former bassist of Paper Museum, a 1990s indie band that split up amicably after reaching the height of their popularity.

Antlers, Colorado is a roughly 230,000 word web novel about two psychics, their (literal and figurative) ghosts, and how they go to Hell and back for each other. It is explicitly LGBTQ+, horror-forward with lots of mystery and murder, and has an interactive Twine intermission after every chapter.
Antlers was originally serialized from 2014 - 2017, and is being re-released here on Substack! You can sign up to receive “re-run” updates on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting May 10th. The interactive intermissions will remain hosted on itch.io, but everything else will be delivered directly to your email!
If you have the urge to read ahead, you can do that on the original site. If you’d like to support Antlers monetarily, check out Marn’s Ko-Fi or the Card Zero Press Patreon. You can also come and chat about the updates over on the Card Zero Press Discord!
