Join Gwendolyn Kiste, Scott Thomas, and me (Mike Davis) this Sunday for the annual Lovecraft eZine HALLOWEEN podcast!
A list (with links) of five recent books that readers of The Weird and/or Lovecraftian/cosmic horror will want to read!
A LONG, DARK, GRIM ROAD is Joe Pulver’s latest book. For those who don’t know, Joe has been dealing with major health issues for over two years now, and he’s been in and out of the hospital constantly. I miss him, I’m worried about him, and I want to help, so: FROM HERE ON OUT, I AM DONATING ALL PROCEEDS FROM ALL SALES OF THIS BOOK TO JOE AND KAT PULVER. In other words, when you purchase this book, Joe gets all the money; I get none. So buy this novella and help Joe and Kat out! It’s a different kind of story, but different is good. I think you’ll enjoy it.
Watch and/or listen to a conversation with Paul Tremblay, John Langan, and Laird Barron, on The Lovecraft eZine Podcast!
The Lovecraft eZine is going on a very temporary hiatus (never fear, the podcast is NOT going on hiatus). Follow the link for more information!
John answers the question we all have on our minds (I’m sure): If Laird Barron, Paul Tremblay, and John Langan got into a fight, who would win?
A treasure trove! I received the following email from Will Hart: “I didn’t realize until today, that you did not have copies of Wilum’s Midnight Fantasies Issues, so here are links to all I have. These files were scanned by me from my collection for Wilum in 2012 to replace his original copies that he no longer had in his possession. I hope these will bring a smile to your face!”
Watch and listen to the last interview with W.H. Pugmire. Listen to remembrances on The Lovecraft eZine podcast and The Horror Show With Brian Keene. Wilum will be missed.
From the introduction by Laird Barron: “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.”
Dark Regions Press is running a new sale for the next few days on a variety of titles including A Mountain Walked: Great Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos, Lovecraft’s Favorite Horror Stories Volumes 1 and 2, Arkham Detective Agency, World War Cthulhu, and Demiurge: The Complete Cthulhu Mythos Tales of Michael Shea.
Happy Holidays!! Here is a fantastic reading of HPL’s “The Festival”, plus an illustrated PDF of the story from the Edgar Wallace Mystery Magazine. Enjoy!
