Welcome to issue #13! Mike Davis here, editor and publisher. I have an amazing lineup for you this month: 5 stories and one essay! Ecstasy of the Gold is a brand new story by Stephen Mark Rainey that I feel fortunate to publish. Scale Hall by Simon Kurt Unsworth will terrify you, especially if you’re a parent. And what can I say about The Dog Who Wished He’d Never Heard of Lovecraft by Anna Tambour? Nothing, except… read it! It’s very unique. Rounding out our stories this month is The Ouroboros Apocrypha, a Thomas Ligotti-inspired tale by Jayaprakash Satyamurthy, and Over the Hills by Victor Takac. And if you’re a Ligotti fan, you’ll enjoy reading Brandon H. Bell’s essay, a reverent take on The Conspiracy Against the Human Race. Enjoy issue #13!

Just started reading on Kindle last night, & very impressed by Ecstasy of the Gold. The world always needs more Mythos SF!
The Shadow Over Innsmouth is my favourite story by Lovecraft.
Cool stuff. I want a t shirt. : |
Looking forward to reading the new issue.
A star-packed issue!
