Yep, I’m behind. Apologies to all of you are are waiting on the 2014 Megapack, and Lovecraft eZine #35 (the Summer issue). My illness is a huge factor, but I won’t bore you with that except to say that surviving on less pain medication isn’t fun. 😉
Anyway, here are some updates:
Autumn Cthulhu: An anthology of original Lovecraftian tales with an autumn theme, published by Lovecraft eZine Press! Autumn Cthulhu will be available sometime this year. Stories by Laird Barron, Damien Angelica Walters, Nadia Bulkin, Scott Thomas, Joe Pulver, Daniel Mills, Richard Gavin, Pete Rawlik, and more! I will be posting a complete Table of Contents tomorrow.
Lovecraft eZine 2014 Megapack: Every story published in the Lovecraft eZine in 2014, available for Kindle in a week or less from today.
Lovecraft eZine #35 (Summer issue): Ten tales of cosmic horror, plus a column by Robert M. Price! Issue #35 will be available in print, Kindle, and on this website in less than a week.
The Lurking Chronology: A Timeline of the Derleth Mythos: Last but not least, a surprise announcement! I’m publishing a new book by Pete Rawlik, and it will be available at NecronomiCon next month. “For decades dedicated fans of HP Lovecraft have looked to his works and from them constructed chronologies, timelines of the stories and their events, with the most ambitious of these being Peter Cannon’s The Chronology Out of Time (Necronomicon Press, 1986). Now, author Pete Rawlik (Reanimators, The Weird Company) presents the culmination of years of research. The Lurking Chronology is a detailed examination of the Cthulhu Mythos tales of August Derleth. Although based on Lovecraft’s mythos, the fictitious universe derived by Derleth is distinctly different, interpreting the core events of Lovecraft’s fiction in entirely different ways and engendering a wholly unique chronology. Fans of both authors will find this to be an indispensable volume in understanding and comparing the artificial universes these masters of the weird have created, and role playing enthusiasts will find it an incomparable resource for setting games in this distinct and dramatic setting. ”
So, lots to look forward to! And thanks to all of you for being patient with me.
Eagerly awaiting the new material, but health comes first.
I’m trying to figure out how to squee over the Derleth timeline book w/o squee-ing over Rawlik, because that would be unmanly. Any estimates how much it will cost in hardcopy and e-version yet?
The print copies will cost $1,000, but the e-books are a bargain at $500.
But I may rethink that. 😉
Not quite sure yet. But it’s a small book, and I try to keep things affordable. Should know in a week or two.
Looking forward to the next megapack! (almost finished the 2013 pack, so great timing as far as I’m concerned)
With a wife suffering a very similar condition I completely understand the “delay” and appreciate the work you do all the more. Hang in there, Mike!
Thanks so much, Stijn. I appreciate it!
