The stars are slowly drifting into alignment, and the eldritch forces behind Word Horde are emitting nigh-incomprehensible gibberings of darkness and madness, waiting for the time, this August, when the Old Ones return.
In other words: Ross Lockhart over at Word Horde has released the table of conents for the upcoming Cthulhu Fhtagn! anthology! And, of course, it’s awesome.

Don’t Make Me Assume My Ultimate Form – Laird Barron
I’m excited to be in an anthology with so many talented folks, some of whom I’ve met before and some of whom I’m simply a fan. The titles themselves are pretty cool, and I’m particularly looking forward to reading Laird Barron’s piece, as it sounds like something I’d say to my kid after she’s had too much sugar.
We don’t have a cover or release date yet (beyond the fact that it’s in August), but this one looks to be something special regardless. Head on over to Word Horde for more, and do check out the other books on offer while you’re there.
