How 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 Library, an 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.*
The complete list of dark luminaries whose work can be found in this ominous omnibus is as follows: Scott David Aniolowski, Glynn Barrass, Edward P. 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. Paul Wilson.
In short, beware; The Starry Wisdom Library has just the book for you.
