I have good news and bad news.
As you probably know, I now publish every other month, and I usually publish eight stories in each issue. (Plus a column by Dr. Robert M. Price.)
There will no October issue of The Lovecraft eZine. The next issue will be in December. That’s the bad news.
The good news is that there’s a great reason for this: I’m now publishing Lovecraftian and Weird Fiction books, in addition to the magazine, and I need to get caught up.
If you’re a Weird Fiction, Lovecraftian, and/or cosmic horror writer, and you’re working on a novel, novella, or collection, consider sending it my way. The Lovecraft eZine has a wide reach — at the time of this writing, it has over 175,000 followers.
At the moment, I’m reprinting several books that I feel deserve more attention. A few months ago, I published a Kindle edition of Blood Will Have Its Season, by Joseph S. Pulver, Sr. (The print edition has been out for a while.) This week, I’ll be publishing The Sea of Ash, by Scott Thomas. (The Sea of Ash was released alongside another story several years ago, and unfortunately wasn’t promoted. It deserves to be.)
I’m also working on an original anthology titled Autumn Cthulhu — Lovecraftian and cosmic horror stories with a fall setting. And Joe Pulver and I are working on The Unlanguage of Unknowing, an anthology based on an unpublished Michael Cisco novel.
So if you have a novel, novella, or collection you’d like me to consider, send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org . In the body of the email, please give me a short synopsis of the book, and tell me a little about yourself.
I’m focused on quality, not quantity, and I move slowly, for more than one reason. But I love Weird Fiction and Lovecraftian fiction, and I want to help talented writers to get their work out there in front of readers.
When you publish with Lovecraft eZine Press, your book will be wonderfully presented but affordable. And just as important, it will be promoted. Too many wonderful books fall by the wayside because readers don’t know about them.
There are some wonderful small press publishers in this genre, and my desire is not to compete with them. I simply want to provide another outlet for Weird Fiction and Lovecraftian writers.
I’ll be creating a permanent submission page here at the website, but for now I just wanted to get the word out with a quick post.
