The Autumn Cthulhu Kickstarter went live 30 hours ago, and it’s already 64% funded!
Autumn Cthulhu is an upcoming anthology published by Lovecraft eZine Press, featuring tales of cosmic horror in an autumnal setting. There are some great rewards for backers, including this cool Autumn Cthulhu coin, some incredible Sara Bardi prints (story illustrations), an alternate cover edition, and more. Check out all of the rewards here.
What I’m most excited about, though, are the stories in this anthology. Laird Barron told me that he thinks that Andy Kaufman Creeping Through the Trees is “one of the best things I’ve done,” and I agree with him. I loved Anchor, a novella by John Langan. And In the Spaces Where You Once Lived, by Damien Angelica Walters, and There is a Bear in the Woods, by Nadia Bulkin, and… hell, I love every story in this book. That’s why I’m publishing them. This is exactly the kind of weird fiction and cosmic horror that I love to read.
