New Story Alert #4: Weirder Shadows Over Innsmouth

And so concludes editor Stephen Jones’ epic trilogy of anthologies spawned from H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Shadow Over Innsmouth.” This project has spanned nearly 20 years, and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of its culmination, and to join the company of the authors who’ve been a part of it.

Innsmouth(250)If you know Lovecraft at all, then you may know that his Innsmouth saga is one of his finest. It’s also bursting with possibilities for expanding the core tale and the mythology in general.

For my part, “The Same Deep Waters As You,” I sought to answer a mystery that neither Lovecraft nor, to my knowledge, anyone else has accounted for:

Whatever happened to the prisoners of the long-ago raids on Innsmouth? Where are they now … and why is there a sudden urgent need to communicate with them today?

This early rave review calls it “one of the best Lovecraft-inspired anthologies ever.”

And check the wonderfully pulpy cover, which looks like it hopped in a time machine from the heyday of Weird Tales magazine.

I normally default to Amazon links, but in this case — and until a mass-market edition appears — you’ll earn so much more good karma buying direct from the publisher, Fedogan & Bremer.
