Fortune's Inkwell: An Interrobang Tarot Guidebook


Out now on Amazon and Ingram.


As guidebook to the decks, glyphs, spreads, and blog that comprise the Interrobang Tarot ecosystem, Fortune's Inkwell uses a one-room-schoolhouse approach to deliver innovative, irreverent, and advanced tarot material with the scaffolding of a warm and playful primer fit for readers and diviners of any level. Here, folk-esoterica and queer reversals braid together with practical approaches so grounded, they're underground. Designed with diverse creative misfits in mind, this book aims to support the reader's own crafty resilience, adaptive wisdom, and visionary experiences of the ever-evolving arcana.

Tidal Locks 

& Other Tales You Told So Long

You Can't Tell What They Mean


Welcome to Holistic, Lush Dysphoria! We’ve got Skee-ball!

Tidal Locks book cover by Evvin Marin illustrated with a moody seascape including wild rose, crab claw, and gull feather.

Tidal Locks is a salty, playfully anachronistic glimpse into the private diaries of an irreverent contemplative and amiable recluse. An illustrated blend of fiction and confession, Marin’s poetry remixes the hallucinatory symbolism of folklore, natural history, occultism, and dream to explore the deep surrealism, haunted beauty, queer urgency, and mundane heartaches of waking life in a decaying world. 

We built this gate and kept it locked.

We tethered up and linked the knots

Until our knuckles polished down to bone.

We named the battened outfit Reassurance,

And we rested reassured we were alone . . .
