Are you prepared for Cthulhu’s rise? That’s a silly question, because much like the Spanish Inquisition, nobody expects Cthulhu…which is funny, since it’s a ginormous octopus-headed, bat-winged, humanoid horror that you really can’t miss.
But I digress.
Cthulhu Fhtagn!, the latest Lovecraft-inspired anthology from uber-editor Ross Lockhart, is now available for preorder on Amazon Kindle. The book of 19 amazing weird tales — from authors such as Laird Barron, Richard Lee Byers, Molly Tanzer and, well, me — comes out August 15. Get in on it! Preorder it! Prepare for the soul-wrenching darkness!
Well, the first two, at least.
If you want it in print, head on over to Word Horde and order direct from the publisher — and get the ebook bundled with it for just $19.99. You’ve spent more on lunch. Heck, I’ve spent more on a single bottle of beer.
As for my story, “On a Kansas Plain,” I won’t say too much except that it’s set in the modern day, and bad things happen. Bad. Things. But you probably already figured that last bit out. As I’ve said before, it’s a bit of a departure for me, but I’m excited to see it among the work of so many other great authors.
August 15. Cthulhu’s coming. Be prepared.
