It’s a Very Lovecraft Christmas

Miskatonic River Press has a new book out!  All who order by Monday night at 11:59PM EST, are put in a kitty for a chance to win a signed copy of The Strange Dark One…a collection of W. H. Pugmire’s tales of Nyarlathotep which is due out next spring or so.

Go here to order.

And no, I’m not getting paid for this.  They just publish great Lovecraftian anthologies, and you should read them.  🙂

“Holidays. Special days of commemoration and celebration. Feasts and festivities. Remembrance and revelry. But what dark things lurk just out of sight, in the shadows of those celebrated days? Forces beyond our comprehension, yearning to burst into our warm and comforting world and tear asunder those things we hold most dear. As the wheel of the year turns and we embrace our favorite occasions, let us not forget that beyond the light is a darkness, and in that darkness something stirs. Some nameless thing that brings us Horror for the Holidays!”

  1. For those of you who don’t know, these are the same guys who brought you the totally awesome DEAD BUT DREAMING anthologies. Most Lovecraftians agree that they contain some of the best mythos stories of recent years.
