Yes, "The Shadow Court", from the future dystopian world of the Psyche Corporation is now real and has come into this plane of reality from the dream world of Psyche Chimere, the first Shadow Queen of Psyche Corporation. In her own immortal words:

"You’re correct in choosing this place

To petition for divine grace

You've always wanted too much

I can give you what you seek

But I’m no kindly sort of Queen, and

I demand to know what you would sacrifice to me?

Sacrifice to me!"

OK. Soooo what does that mean exactly? Well don't expect to be asked for a credit card number here. Instead, to become a member of the Shadow Court of Psyche Corporation you have give us something a bit more personal. Now don't run off so fast. It won't cost any fingers or toes, not generally anyway. A poem, a bit of fan fiction, a sketch of angelbots, a photo of yourself cosplaying a creature from the Psyche Corporation World. What is even more important is that you spread the word about Psyche Corporation' s wonderful music, fascinatingly bizarre lyrics, helping advertise "Scheduled Indoctrinations" (aka concerts and performance) and directly contribute to spreading the Empire of the Shadow Queen throughout this time-space continuum through internet traffic, awakening of the populace through physical medium such as flyers and sidewalk chalk messages, and especially through direct word of mouth communications!

Chimera News

Psyche Chimera, the Shadow Queen, and her more recent incarnations as Shadow Queens (not to mention the lovely and talented and somewhat gentler alter ego) are being honored by their minions who have put together a new newsletter Chimera News.  It is intended to publish on a regular basis, but occasional Neo-Luddite uprisings and such sometimes interfere with the timeline and all so..... You know how it goes.  Just the same, the content includes all the most interesting posts from the Shadow Court, beautiful photos, and a listing of scheduled indoctrinations (sometimes referred to by the uninitiated as concerts or performances).

These indoctrinations in the ways and means of the Shadow Court will be listed as performances by Psyche Corporation.  Thus far only those human mortals on the East Coast area and Canada have been fortunate enough to hear the call strongly enough to schedule such "performances", but that is about to change.  Plans are in the works to bring Psyche corporation to Texas for New Years less than a year from the time of this writing (in linear time terms anyway) and our tendrils are even extending into the Steampunk and performance art community on the West Coast as well, so we will just have to wait and see where that leads.

As a sincere devotee of this Goddess of the beauty of all that is strange and wonderful, I humbly extend my personal thanks and appreciation to Harlequin ( aka CharlieQuinn) for this wonderful contribution to the cause.

If you have any suggestions, submission offers, or questions about the Chimera News newsletter, please email the editor, Harlequinn, at: charliequinn(at)

A message from Harlequinn, Editor of The Chimera

Thank you for taking the time to read the first official monthly newsletter from Psyche Corporation. Honestly, this is my first time doing anything near a proper publication, or even using HTML coding in an email (if you didn't understand that, just smile and nod). I welcome any criticism and feedback on what people think of it, so please do email me here: with The Chimera Newsletter as the subject line.

This story takes place in the 24th century, just prior to the events of the NeoLuddite Wars (and hence prior to the Angelic Commonwealth and the dominion of the Shadow Court). It is set in the towns of Meinaii and Star Circlet, both of which are official towns in the world of Psyche Corporation, and even the story itself is canon to the world of Psyche Corporation.

Details of the timeline for the world of Psyche Corporation can be  found here

Thank you for your comment. In order to assure that the Shadow Queen doesn't receive any messages that cause her to start dissecting anyone, we moderate comments a bit. Actually anything that is not particularly vulgar or offensive will get published, but please be patient while our little minions process such requests!
