NEW from Lovecraft eZine Press!
Behold the Void, by Philip Fracassi. This brand new edition of the award-winning BEHOLD THE VOID features TEN brand-new, full-page illustrations, Story Notes for each of the nine stories, and a sharp new cover design!
“When you open this collection, you’re headed down a dark alley within the precincts of the Twilight Zone. It’s the kind of place where the wrong people get hurt; hazard is everywhere and it doesn’t play favorites. The complacent won’t find refuge here on the threshold of the void. Nobody is safe and nothing is sacred. Enjoy the ride.”
– from the introduction by Laird Barron
BEHOLD THE VOID is nine stories of terror that huddle in the dark space between cosmic horror and the modern weird, between old-school hard-edged horror of the 1980’s and the stylistic prose of today’s literary giants.
