The website (free) version of issue #22 is now online (please cancel the “Lynch Mike Davis” petition). I want to thank all of you for your patience; my illness really got the better of me this past week. The good news, though, is that you don’t have long to wait for issue #23; it will be online in about 2 weeks!
As an apology for being late, I’d like to give away some cool stuff. To start with, I’m going to give away AM 1200 on DVD to three lucky issue #22 commenters! (AM 1200 is one of the finest Lovecraftian movies ever made — read about it here.) It will be a random drawing; to enter, simply read the stories in issue #22 and then comment on one or more of them. One week from now, Wednesday, March 13, I will randomly select the winners. And stay tuned, because there will be more issue #22 drawings and contests.
I feel that Lovecraft eZine gets better with every issue — the stories in this one are absolutely stellar. I’m proud to be publishing veterans like Robin Spriggs, Simon Kurt Unsworth, Don Webb, David Conyers, and John Goodrich.
I want to call special attention to a name you may not have seen before: Samantha Henderson. Her story Maybe the Stars is one of the best “Deep Ones” tales I have ever read. Keep your eye on her (and by the way, I’m publishing another of her stories in the next issue!).
Last but not least, Joe Navare’s story Verbapeutic proves that words can harm far worse than sticks and stones!
If you’re interested in reading more by these authors, check out the links to their books in the bios at the end of each story. For example, I’ve become a fan of Harrison Peel, the protagonist in The Masked Messenger, and you can read more of his adventures in The Spiraling Worm, The Eye of Infinity (Kindle, paperback) and Cthulhu Unbound 3.
