Stranger Aeons

The Domain of Horror Writer Glynn Owen Barrass

Hello and welcome to my web-page, here you will find information about my writing and editing projects. Below you can read the most recent news regarding my fiction appearances.

I began writing in late 2006, my inspirations being the writer H.P. Lovecraft and other weird fiction authors. My major writing output is Cthulhu Mythos fiction, horror, cyberpunk and some fantasy. I have written over 180 stories and 18 roleplaying game scenarios, published in the UK, the USA, France, Germany, Japan, Poland, Portugal, and Spain. As well as writing, I edit fiction anthologies and write material for the Call of Cthulhu role playing game.

Out now!

The Pickman Papers, from Innsmouth Gold.

This collection of Lovecraftian tales in a Dickensian style features my short story, The Feaster From Afar. It is about a Glaswegian detective despatched to the North Yorkshire Moors to investigate a series of grisly murders.

Get a paperback or ebook copy here - https://mybook.to/papers


It is 1826, and the august members of the Pickman Club gather for their Annual Dinner. As is usual, members are asked to share any recent strange or singular experiences with the group. And so, dinner done, the assembled gather round the fireplace as each, in turn, narrates their tale.

Here are those stories, collated by one who was there, presented for your interest and enjoyment. But be warned! The tales within reveal many disturbing secrets about our world and the things that lay beyond and, in some cases, beneath it.

Read then, if you will, of beings of the outer cosmos, and of the peculiar traditions of decaying, seaside towns. Learn of cursed family artefacts and the dangers of experimenting with exotic drugs. And hearken to the chilling reality revealed by the digging of the Thames Tunnel...

The door to the Pickman Club is open.....

TerrorVision. Stories Inspired by Cult Horror and Sci-fi Films

Curated by Raffaele Pezzella


This venerable tome includes my story "Terror at the Harriet Kingston Motel."

TerrorVision
 is a unique blend of horror and science fiction which pays homage to some of the best movies and franchises cinematic and televisual horror history. During the course of my writing career, I have been fortunate to have worked on franchises such as The Terminator, Doctor Who, Dracula, Hellraiser and my own creations. With this in mind I believe that I can say with some authority that each of the stories present in this anthology will take you on a wild ride. The genesis of this book came from the current trend to write narratives inspired by cinema. Expanding upon the universes we only glimpse in the film’s runtime. Let’s face it, we all wanted to know more about planet LV-426 or how the machines became sentient in the Terminator universe. There are so many compelling stories to be told in these realms, far more that can be expressed in a runtime of 90 minutes or even 120. - Chris McAuley

Within this book you will find a number of excellent stories celebrating Horror films and that universe’s great directors from storytellers such as John Carpenter and Lucio Fulci to Dario Argento, Sam Raimi, David Cronenberg, Ridley Scott and more. Let me be your usher and guide you past this crimson velvet rope to the shadowy theater within. The director of this tome, Raffaele Pezzella, has carefully selected these tales to keep you up all night from vampiric cars to secret films that should never have been made. 
TerrorVision asks you to come into our world where cinema and those monsters are truly alive. - Sarah Walker

The writers:

Glynn Owen Barrass, J. Edwin Buja, John D. Chadwick, Andrew Coulthard, Claudia Christian, Mawr Gorshin, Michael F. Housel, Chris McAuley, Tim Mendees, Nora B. Peevy, Russell Smeaton, Sarah Walker.

30th November 2022

This month I wrote an article for shepherd.com


Who am I?

I’ve been a fan of the Cthulhu Mythos and detective fiction since childhood, cutting my teeth on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Raymond Chandler, and Dashiell Hammett at an early age. A voracious reader of both horror and mystery, I read and reread these tales and began crafting my own to the point where many years later, as an award-winning writer with over 200 fiction publications under my belt, I feel these genres go together like they were always destined to cross. I write daily, and have a Bachelor’s Degree in Crime Scene Science. You could say crime and horror are always on my mind!

Chamado de Cthulhu (7ª Edição) - Portais para as Trevas

Brian M. Sammons, Kevin Ross, Christopher Smith Adair, Brian Courtemanche, Glynn Owen Barrass, e Tom Lynch

PORTAIS PARA AS TREVAS


A ideia por trás deste livro veio de várias fontes diferentes que pareciam combinar como manteiga de amendoim e geleia ou a cidadezinha de Innsmouth e sexo sem preservativo. Em primeiro lugar, muitos Guardiões parecem sempre procurar cenários “one-shot” que podem ser completados durante uma única sessão, com o mínimo de preparo e confusão possível.
Quer seja para uma aventura rápida, quando a maior parte da turma habitual não pode comparecer à sessão do jogo, ou para utilização em convenções, os cenários deste livro foram concebidos com esse objetivo em mente. Cada um pode ser normalmente concluído dentro de quatro a cinco horas.

Para deixar o livro ainda mais fácil de se “pegar e jogar” em uma maneira mais rapida e direta pronta para os Investigadores que preferem pular direto para a parte da ação em uma partida inicial de Chamado de Cthulhu, foram incluídas dez fichas de investigadores pré-construídos para promover jogos rápidos, a qualquer hora e em qualquer lugar.

In a unique anthology of monster, folk, paranormal, and psychological horror as glimpsed through the lens of the latchkey generation, twenty-two voices shine a strobe light on the cultural demons that lurked in the background while they came of age in the heyday of Satanic panic and slasher flicks, milk carton missing and music television, video rentals and riot grrrls.

My latest Call of Cthulhu scenario is now available from Stygian Fox Press! It is a Patreon exclusive for now, but will be available to buy at a later date.

The Book of Nonterraqueous

It was supposed to be a simple job: collect a book from a wealthy woman’s contact. Other forces covet the book, however, and the investigators find themselves in grave danger as the simple collection job becomes something far more sinister. Are their lives and sanity worth the price of completing the task? Will they betray the woman who hired them or stay
loyal throughout the sinister events?

This Modern Era, 7th edition Call of Cthulhu scenario takes place in Boston. The investigation can be completed with no combat, making it suitable for a single player, although up to four could play without adjusting the scenario’s difficulty. It can be completed in a single session.

My entry to this year's Octobernomicon, an entity from Mexican folklore written up for Call of Cthulhu.

“The strangest of all the phantasms described is, perhaps, the Yohualtepoztli, literally, ” the night hatchet or axe.” It manifested itself by causing loud intermittent sounds resembling those produced by the blows of an axe in splitting wood. These ominous sounds were audible at dead of night in the mountains, and inspired terror, for they were said to be illusions produced by Tezcatlipoca in order to frighten and mock those who were out in the dark.” .

– Zelia Nuttall, A Note on Ancient Mexican Folk-Lore

I am very proud my story “The Blind King of Bythesea Manor” appears in this anthology.

Y: A Stygian Fox anthology concerning the terrifying King in Yellow.

Edited by Simon Brake. Stories by Glynn Owen Barrass, Alison Cybe, Adam Gauntlett, Helen Gould, John Linwood Grant, Orrin Grey, and Tom Pleasant.

The King in Yellow was unleashed upon the world at the end of the nineteenth century. In the real world Robert W. Chambers wrote the book of short stories, published in 1895, whilst according to that work of fiction an unknown author had a maddening play of the same name published that same year. What then ultimately is the King in Yellow, the king whom emperors have served, who has no love for the fancy trappings of crowns and fine robes, instead remaining hidden behind a pale mask and tattered robes?

Here are seven new short stories, seven authors taking the opportunity to set the stage according to their own vision and bringing to life terrible nightmares that hint at the terrible darkness that lurks behind the mask that is not a mask.

Quiet now, for the show is about to begin...

Sure, it's not "fine literature," but, faced with a giant snake or an evil wizard, who'd you rather have at your side: the Great Gatsby or Conan the Cimmerian? This anthology, a revival of Lin Carter's celebrated Flashing Swords! series, sets forth new adventures of worthies including Thongor of Lemuria, Varla of Valkarth, Elak of Atlantis, the mighty Hercules, and others. You'll thrill to the exploits and to the inspired writing, worthy of the Nemedian Chronicles!

Our authors include Lin Carter, Pierre Comtois, Glenn Owen Barrass, Steve Lines, Robert M. Price, Glenn Usher, and others -- plus a Graphic Novella by Clayton Hinkle featuring Tonga of Lost Lemuria.

The first edition of this anthology was retracted and never properly released. This is a new, thoroughly reworked edition from a new publisher -- and of course much, much better!
