Now, with about 66 hours left, the campaign has kicked into a stretch-goal of $9,000 before it closes.

I am afraid I do not know details about artist selection/submission, and all that, and that should be taken up with editor Silvia Moreno-Garcia, but I am really looking forward to seeing women illustrators represented in this sandbox, as they are perhaps even more overlooked in Lovecraftiana than female writers.
I know I’ve said it before, but I am excited to be a part of a very impressive TOC, and I wouldn’t be doing it without Silvia’s leadership and our readers support–so, a big thank you to everyone who tolerated my blasting of this campaign, who shared and linked to it, and the biggest thanks of all to everyone who threw their money at it.
