The Mammoth Book of Cthulhu!

I have been utterly remiss in not posting about this yet! My complete lack of posting does not in any way reflect how awesome or exciting it is that Paula Guran has edited this anthology, that it contains 150,000+ words of new fiction (that’s right: all original stuff, not reprints!), that she asked me for…… Continue reading The Mammoth Book of Cthulhu!

2013: The year that was…

Mega-Catchup Post, Part One: WFC

Travel, writing, marking essays, launching Midnight and Moonshine, editing, applying for jobs… Any and all of these things explain my general lack of updatery lately. That’s no excuse, you say? True. True. So I shall endeavour to fill you all in on the events of the past month in a short series of Mega-Catchup Posts…… Continue reading Mega-Catchup Post, Part One: WFC
