I am excited to be on tonight’s Lovecraft Ezine Chat where I’ll be joining Mike Davis, Acep Hale, and crew to discuss my short story collection, Calls for Submission, and all the dark, sundry things within.

Wandering Spirits: Traveling Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN has been out in the world for a few months, and I’m happy to report that, not only is it alive, but doing well! I have been getting thrills from seeing Book Selfies on Facebook (scrapbooked below), and getting cool shout-out on various Frankenstein related content like Orrin Grey‘s …

She Walks In Shadows Stretch Goal Aims at Illustrators
A few days ago, the indiegogo campaign to fund the first all-ladies anthology featuring all stories about Lovecraft’s women was fully funded! Now, with about 66 hours left, the campaign has kicked into a stretch-goal of $9,000 before it closes. That extra grand will go towards commissioning illustrations from female artists, and it looks like there’s only about $500 more to go before that is achieved.
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.
