The Lovecraft eZine SERIOUSLY needs your help

A really great magazine that really deserves everyone’s help and support is in financial trouble due to the owner, Mike Davis, having health problems leading to serious expenses. Mike is a goodguy and has been operating the Lovecraft eZine at a loss since it began. He charges next to nothing, pays his writers, and weird horror luminaries like Wilum Pugmire, Joe Pulver, William Meikle, and even yours truly have filled his electronic pages with some great short stories and novellas. Every issue can be read online for free, and the ebook versions of each issue are some of the lowest prices in the industry. The magazine has even been praised by Lovecraftian scholar and master of the weird, S.T. Joshi.

So please, go read this post and help the zine out. This is one of the best Lovecraftian zines around, and if it falls apart we will have lost a great resource to the entire horror and weird fiction fandom. Please read the post and donate as much as you can afford.

Read “Dreams of Fire and Glass Part 2” for Free at the Lovcraft eZine!

The June issue of the Lovecraft eZine is out, Faithful Readers, and you all know what that means…the conclusion of my newest novella, “Dreams of Fire and Glass“, is available to read for FREE. Remember to read Part 1 first if you’re joining us for the first time.

Also appearing in this issue:

The Case of the Galloway Eidolon, by Bruce DurhamThough closed for the evening, the warm, deep shadows cast by the subdued lighting failed to disguise each victim’s grisly demise. Two had received severe chest wounds, their cotton shirts blood-soaked and torn from multiple swings of some bladed instrument. The third had suffered a more ghastly wound, a crushed cranium; the blow slicing bone and opening the forehead down to the mouth. His glazed eyes stared obscenely in opposite directions.  “Ever see anything like it, Holmes?” Lestrade asked…

The Call of the Dance, by William Meikle“What is it Holmes?” I whispered, but my friend did not answer. The glow from the cylinder intensified. At first I thought Holmes was moving in for a closer look, then I saw he was intent on something on the trestle to one side – a journal of some kind. But as he stepped slowly nearer, so the glow grew brighter. I have seen the aurora in Northern climes, and the light that danced there above us in that workshop reminded me of that. But I was not inspired by the same sense of awe – no, this was more like fear, an animal terror of something unworldly, something far beyond my experience...

Unearthly Awakening, by W.H. PugmireAnd so I have come to you, on this foggy day in Providence, and lured you from your little world among the university lads, and held your hand as we walked past the little park adjacent to the shunned house. And we walked the streets where once Poe trod, and climbed down the steps that led to the winding walkway that took us into this enchanting burying ground…

Darius Roy’s Manic Grin, by Brian BarnettDarius Roy shifted his eyes to Dr. Johansson. Dr. Johansson felt his chest tighten. Something about the mania in Mr. Roy’s red-ringed eyes… Something was different about the man. In all his medical years, Dr. Johansson for the first time sat across from a man who he felt threatened by. He, for once, was happy to see a straight jacket in use. But shame bit at him. It was his duty to cure the man, not fear him…

Upcoming: Dreams of Fire and Glass

H.P. LovecraftMy newest novella of the weird and macabre, “Dreams of Fire and Glass” will be appearing in serial form in the May and June issues of the Lovecraft eZine, a wonderful publication that has already showcased the work of such small-press luminaries as W.H. Pugmire, William Meikle, and Simon Kurt Unsworth. I am truly honored to have my work published alongside these writers, and I encourage everyone out there to read their stories in the eZine and to check out their work on Amazon. I was especially impressed with “A Different Morecambe“, a dark little tale of a father out for a drive with his son.

Dreams of Fire and Glass

Young Jason Raene took the coding job with nothing more than a paycheck in mind. But when the game he helped make begins to invade his dreams and waking life, the boundary between fantasy and reality begins to thin…to horrifying consequences.

Read “Dreams of Fire and Glass” soon, exclusively at the Lovecraft Ezine!


Happy Birthday to W.H. Pugmire, the Queen of Eldritch Horror!

For those of you not in the know, W.H. Pugmire is one of the premier writers of modern “weird tales” and a lot of fun on YouTube. His collections of short stories and the setting of Sesqua Valley both do justice to the specter of Lovecraft and push the boundaries of “acceptable” interpretations of reality (as any good weird tale should).
