Whispers in the Dark

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn...
At long last! A project of mine is out!

It's been a funny couple of years, with me writing like a mad thing and having stories accepted for several markets, only for none of them to appear. But slowly, bit by slow, Cthulhoid bit, they are beginning to surface.

This is one I'm especially proud of, my novella Not To Touch The Earth. It's set in San Francisco during 1967, the Summer of Love(craft).

The anthology features three Cthulhu novellas set in different places and times. My bookmates are Alison Littlewood, with her modern-day Maldives tale, One Nameless Thing, and Johnny Mains with The Gamekeeper, set in Scotland in the 1940s - 1970s.

It's available on Amazon from Snowbooks (ed. Scott Harrison), so please go and get it! Catapult Cthulhu and his minions (well, Alison, Johnny and me) into the mainstream! I eagerly await the first one-star review complaining that the book arrived two days late and that the packaging was damaged...*

*And may the Great Old One Himself wind his hideous, ichthyic tentacles around the throats of all who pen such reviews.
