“The Starry Wisdom Library”

Stary Wisdom LibraryHow do you know it’s the catalogue of the greatest occult book auction of all time? Because it says so right on the cover. Designed by Andrew Leman, of the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society, this is the front jacket art of The Starry Wisdom Libraryan anthology of erudite and sanity-endangering essays edited by intrepid journalist and historian Nate Pedersen and slated for release from the UK’s foremost specialist genre publisher, British Fantasy Award-winning PS Publishing.

Included in the catalogue is a perilous monograph of my own, taking as its subject the all but inscrutable Dhol Chants and based in part on the research of a certain O. F. Droom, much of whose oeuvre (such as it is) can be found in my newly released The Untold Tales of Ozman Droom.*

Berglund, Scott Brents, Jesse Bullington, Allyson Byrd, Ramsey Campbell, Matt Cardin, S. J. Chambers, Michael Cisco, Carrie Cuinn, Owen Davies, Gemma Files, Richard Gavin, Christopher Hanson, Daniel Harms, Stephen Graham Jones, S. T. Joshi, Jonathan Kearns, John Langan, Andrew Leman, Livia Llewellyn, H. P. Lovecraft, Nick Mamata, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Edward Morris, Scott Nicolay, Robert M. Price, W. H. Pugmire, Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., Pete Rawlik, Liv Rainey-Smith, Jayaprakash Satyamurthy, Ann K. Schwader, Darrell Schweitzer, Robin Spriggs, Simon Strantzas, Molly Tanzer, Keith Taylor, Karin Tidbeck, Donald Tyson, Genevieve Valentine, Kali Wallace, Kaaron Warren, Don Webb, Jeffrey Wells, F.

“Swamp Dreams” Lives!

And remembers. And stalks the rain-drenched night of southern Appalachia. But don’t take my word for it; seek out the monster yourself in the fourth issue of Phantasmagorium, Gorgon Press’s quarterly journal of the literary fantastique.

In addition to being my latest published story, “Swamp Dreams” also serves as an excerpt (and puzzle piece) from the ever-elusive but nonetheless forthcoming book, The Untold Tales of Ozman Droom.

Edited by Joe Pulver and featuring the artwork and graphic design of J. D. Busch, Phantasmagorium #4 also includes fiction by Ken Asamatsu, Daniel Mills, Jayaprakash Satyamurthy, and Jeffrey Thomas; poetry by Kristine Ong Muslim; an interview with Ross Lockhart, Managing Editor of Night Shade Books; and a monstrously gorgeous illustration of “Swamp Dreams” by Rob Macabre Smits.

For readers who have expressed a desire to acquire my work in electronic format, this is your first opportunity. If, however, print remains your medium of choice, a trade paperback edition of Phantasmagorium #4 will soon be available from Amazon and directly from Gorgon Press.

Thanks for reading, friends.
