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.”

In the ever-changing landscapes of reality, H.P. Lovecraft and H.R. Giger added their own distinctive road marks, landmarks, and monsters that forever became part of the collective human psyche.
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!
Avalon Brantley’s work is addictive because it is the combined result of a profound knowledge of humanity’s past, an exquisite prose style and a deep love for the act of storytelling. More than anything it is an all-consuming love of writing that lends its luminosity to DESCENDED SUNS RESUSCITATE.
Ramsey Campbell is not about to disappoint… Some of the horrors in THE WAY OF THE WORM are as unearthly as any polypous demigod rising from the sea; others are ones you could all too easily encounter in real life. Pray that you don’t.
Watch or listen to the latest episode of the Lovecraft eZine podcast! Our guest was Ellen Datlow, editor of THE BEST OF THE BEST HORROR OF THE YEAR: 10 YEARS OF ESSENTIAL SHORT HORROR FICTION (and many other books). After we spoke with Ellen, we discussed the upcoming AMC NOS4A2 series, PICKMAN’S GALLERY, DOORBELLS AT DUSK: HALLOWEEN STORIES, the new movie COLD SKIN, and much more!
These novels stand just slightly off the beaten path awaiting discovery, yet when the right audience stumbles across them and begins to unravel the myriad threads Levenda has woven throughout, a devoted and multi-faceted fanbase will emerge. I’d snatch these hardcovers while you can.
All of these are available on iTunes (just search for Lovecraft eZine Podcast), or you can click the links below. Audio-only editions are provided if you want to listen “on the go,” on your commute, while driving, or whatever else. Or you can watch the episodes on Youtube.
I’ve been eagerly following the progress of ELDRITCH TALES for a long time. I feel we need an RPG such as this for the Mythos market. Joe Salvador, IMHO, has hit that fabled Goldilocks spot OSR gamers live for. Just enough rules to provide guidance when needed yet not so many they entangle the GM or the players.
Acclaimed filmmakers Moorhead and Benson return with this mind-bending supernatural thriller about two brothers who revisit the UFO death cult they escaped as teens, only to find there may have been truth to the cult’s otherworldly beliefs all along.
