A wonderful Lovecraftian anthology you’re probably not reading!

From the title and the cover, it is easy to assume that Horror For the Holidays, a Lovecraftian short story collection published by Miskatonic River Press, is about Christmas.  Well, there are Christmas tales, true.  But Horror For the Holidays is just that — Lovecraftian horror stories for most of the holidays through-out the year.

Among the holidays celebrated in this collection are Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, the 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and of course, Christmas.

And the contributors?  How about Thomas Ligotti, Ramsey Campbell, Robert M. Price, Joseph S. Pulver Sr., Ann K. Schwader, W.H. Pugmire, and many others — does that whet your appetite?

Miskatonic River Press is one of the finest — if not the finest — Lovecraftian publishers out there, and they deserve our support.  If we buy their books, they’ll be able to keep publishing books — it’s that simple.  And I could be wrong, but I feel that a lot of people think that Horror For the Holidays is all about Christmas, and of course when it’s not December, most of us aren’t in the mood to read Christmas stories — even horror and Lovecraftian ones.

But Horror For the Holidays is a collection you can read year-round; in fact, as varying holidays in the year approach, I’ve been reading stories from the book matching the appropriate holiday.  Lots of fun.

Order your copy here.  I’m not getting paid a dime for this — but I consider it my job to get the word out about collections like this one.

  1. That sounds awesome. I am such a huge fan of several of those authors, and obviously a huge Lovecraft fan and anything to do with Cthulhu… will be getting my own copy.

  2. This is one of the finest anthologies I have ever appeared in. The stories are so good, so strange and original. I tried to write a Lovecraftian piece concerning the tomb of Oscar Wilde, one of my obsessions. Very proud to be in this awesome anthology!
