‘King In Yellow’- themed anthology, A Season In Carcosa, out now from Miskatonic River PressComments Off
“H.P. Lovecraft. Karl Edgar Wagner. Peter Straub. Those are a few of the names that stand tall in our genre and when it comes to Robert W. Chambers and his King in Yellow (first published in 1895) they agree, Chambers’ beguiling tales of the King In Yellow and Carcosa are among the best in weird fiction. Miskatonic River Press and Joseph S. Pulver, Sr. are proud and delighted to present a themed anthology of all new tales inspired by Chambers.
In haunted and splintered minds… Minds shackled to lonely places…
In A Season In Carcosa readers will find the strange and mysterious places of heart and mind that spring from madness, and those minds and the places touched by it are the realms that are mined. Chambers’ legacy of the worms and soft decay that spring from reading the King In Yellow stir both new and established talents in the world of weird fiction and horror to contribute all new tales that pay homage to these eerie nightmares. In Carcosa twilight comes and minds lost in the mirrors of lust and fear, are awash in legacies of shadows, not mercy. . .”
Authors include: Joel Lane, Simon Strantzas, Gary McMahon, Cate Gardner, Richard Gavin, Joseph S. Pulver, Richard A. Lupoff, Anna Tambour, Laird Barron, Allyson Bird and many others. Cover art is by British Fantasy Award-winning artist Daniele Serra.

New horror magazine seeks Kickstarter fundingComments Off
John Joseph Adams is seeking Kickstarter funding for the proposed Nightmare Magazine - “a monthly magazine of horror and dark fantasy short fiction which will be published both online and in ebook format. This Kickstarter is intended to help fund the first issue and to get the magazine off the ground.
In Nightmare‘s pages, you will find all kinds of horror fiction, from zombie stories and haunted house tales, to visceral psychological horror. No subject is off-limits, and we will be encouraging our writers to take chances with their fiction and push the envelope.
Edited by bestselling anthologist John Joseph Adams, every month Nightmare will bring you a mix of originals and reprints, and feature a variety of authors—from the bestsellers and award-winners you already know to the best new voices you haven’t heard of yet. When you read Nightmare, it is our hope that you’ll see where horror comes from, where it is now, and where it’s going.
Nightmare will also include non-fiction, fiction podcasts, and Q&As with our authors that go behind-the-scenes of their stories.”
There are new brand stories lined up for the first issue from Laird Barron, Sarah Langan, Jonathan Maberry and Genevieve Valentine.
