“Lovecraft Pulp Fiction” by Christopher Rowan – from here: http://bit.ly/1e0BhWb

As editor of The Lovecraft eZine, I consider it my job to let the readers know about Lovecraftian books.  And I try — I have a list of my favorites on this page.

But of course, it’s hard to keep up with everything.  So authors, I want to give you the opportunity to tell the world about your book!  Please comment below with your book title, your name, and whatever you’d like us to know about the book.

(And readers: if you want to buy one of these books, please use the eZine Amazon Portal.  It won’t cost you anything extra, but it will support the magazine.  Thanks!)

OK, authors, comment below!

  1. I have a Lovecraftian weird western series called MERKABAH RIDER. It’s about a Hasidic gunslinger tracking the renegade teacher who betrayed his mystic Jewish order of astral travelers to the Outer Gods. The Rider pits Judeocentric magic against Shub-Niggurath, the Yithians, Nyarlathotep, and other dangers in the course of the series as he learns the depths of his master’s betrayal and the scope of the true nature of the universe. The series consists of four books – TALES OF A HIGH PLANES DRIFTER, THE MENSCH WITH NO NAME, HAVE GLYPHS WILL TRAVEL and ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEIRD WEST. You can read the first three pages and some reviews here – http://emerdelac.wordpress.com/2011/07/12/some-review-of-merkabah-rider/

  2. I have a little book called That Which Should Not Be. It is my love letter to Lovecraft. Description below.

    Miskatonic University has a long-whispered reputation of being strongly connected to all things occult and supernatural. From the faculty to the students, the fascination with other-worldly legends and objects runs rampant. So, when Carter Weston’s professor Dr. Thayerson asks him to search a nearby village for a book that is believed to control the inhuman forces that rule the Earth, Incendium Maleficarum, The Inferno of the Witch, the student doesn’t hesitate to begin the quest.

    Weston’s journey takes an unexpected turn, however, when he ventures into a tavern in the small town of Anchorhead. Rather than passing the evening as a solitary patron, Weston joins four men who regale him with stories of their personal experiences with forces both preternatural and damned. Two stories hit close to home as they tie the tellers directly to Weston’s current mission.

    His unanticipated role as passive listener proves fortuitous, and Weston fulfills his goal. Bringing the book back to Miskatonic, though, proves to be a grave mistake. Quickly, Weston realizes he has played a role in potentially opening the gate between the netherworld and the world of Man. Reversing the course of events means forgetting all he thought he knew about Miskatonic and his professor and embracing an unknown beyond his wildest imagination.

  3. I am about 2/3 of the way through a book called “Chaos, Arizona” It is set around the turn of the century (1900s) at the end of the old west. The protagonist is a GLO (General Land Office predecessor to the BLM) official named Sandstrom who is in charge of homesteads, reservations, trading posts and over-seeing the mining and ranching in east central Arizona. A family of homesteaders are discovered dead in strange circumstances and the only survivor is found in a near catatonic state with a local band of Yavapai Indians. When he comes to he tells of something that came out of an old mine shaft deep in the earth. A strange woman named Deborah assumes care for the boy and tells Sandstrom more of what this all portends.
