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!
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?
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.
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.
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.
Lovecraft’s Uniqueness. That is what we want to explore in this essay, “What makes Lovecraft’s fiction trail-blazing?” Or specifically, while Lovecraft was a materialist and atheist, “What literary steps did he take to rekindle a myth-hunger in modern humanity?”
VASTARIEN is a source of critical study and creative response to the corpus of Thomas Ligotti as well as associated authors and ideas. The inaugural issue is going to be something unusually special, filled with in-depth essays, interviews, original visual art pieces, weird fiction, terrific poetry, and fascinating hybrid pieces. An interview with Thomas Ligotti and an introduction by him, neither of which have ever been presented in English, are included.
CARNACKI operates in shadowy occult realms, on the fringes of science, in places out of sight and out of mind of normal everyday people. But sometimes the darkness touches the lives of others in ways they cannot understand, and they find they need help – the kind of help that only Carnacki can provide.
“H. P. Lovecraft’s Letters to Robert Bloch and Others” contained discussions of several unpublished early tales by Bloch that never saw print.
Knifepoint Horror is one of the finest examples of weird fiction that I have come across. In my opinion, every writer and reader of weird fiction should be paying attention to what author Soren Narnia is doing with this podcast.
