Publisher Description:

An illustrated guide to celebrating alternative futures today!

Second Edition.

Cardboard sculpting how-to, karaoke songbook, naturedrag theorization, 450-million-year-long love letter to horseshoe crabs, field guide to a different future--BLOODTIDE proposes exactly what we need in a form we never imagined: a new kind of holiday in homage to the ancient Horseshoe Crab.

BLOODTIDE is drawn from the author's own need for new cultural practices and extended as an offering for anybody to use with hopes of contributing to collective liberation. It attempts queer futurity, without mythologies of settler innocence and with sustained recognition that time extends through our ancestors: recent ones and ancient. BLOODTIDE promotes horizontalist structure-building practices through pageantry, crabaoke, cardboard sculpting, feasting and other hands-on, locally oriented, commemorative & survivalist practices. BLOODTIDE posits that homage and attention to horseshoe crabs might further all repair efforts and other insufficient necessities for our collective and individual healing/transformation.
