Now available! Legacy of the Reanimator - edited by Peter Rawlik and Brian M. Sammons.
Features 'A Man Called West,' by me and Ron Shiflet.
Published by Chaosium.

The Legacy of the Reanimator collects the original serialized H.P. Lovecraft story, “Herbert West—Reanimator” along with it’s two sequels and a bevy of short stories from some of the most renowned Lovecraftian writers. Details of Herbert West’s life from childhood to death—and beyond can be found within The Legacy of the Reanimator. 

Reanimation. The process of bringing life to that which is dead. It is well known that the tow-headed fiend Herbert West came close to perfecting the process within his lifetime. It is also well known that the reanimated limbs, parts, and minions that he had created over the years eventually came back to haunt him—and dismember his body. 

However, Herbert West didn’t die. Well…yes he did. The problem is he didn’t stay dead. He was brought back in two round robins edited by Robert m. Price. The first was Herbert West-Reanimated followed by Herbert West—Reincarnated. These were published in old issues of Crypt of Cthulhu, and are terribly hard to get a hold of…until now.

Occult Detective Monster Hunter.
Featuring my short story: Aftermath III
Edited by Josh Reynolds and published by Emby Press
'A murder has been committed and another could be at any moment. A fortune has gone missing, a map has mysteriously appeared and something is frightening the children at night. All is in confusion and the only thing for certain is that a detective is needed, but the first detective got a glimpse of what the children are afraid of and left without so much as a word. There are times when it becomes clear that a different sort of detective is needed; one who understands or at least accepts that threats are not always human or even physical and that solving the case will take more than a sharp eye. This is the domain of the Occult Detective. Literary history is rich with great Occult Detectives and A Grimoire of Eldritch Inquests seeks to honor and add to them as many of today's most talented Occult Detective authors offer their original tales. Steeped in tradition but with a modern edge, the first of two volumes presents 22 tales of monsters, magic and mystery investigated by those that book their trade by it.'

Beyond the Mountains of Madness, edited by Robert M. Price, from Celaeno Press

Antarctica... a frozen wasteland of penguins, blinding ice and snow, and blizzards to kill the unprepared in minutes. But it is an ancient land, with ancient secrets, mysteries that humanity is only beginning to glimpse. HP Lovecraft introduced the world to the terrifying reality of this lonely continent in his famous novella, At the Mountains of Madness, and now a new team of intrepid authors follows in his footsteps. New dimensions of horror will send chills up your spine, from the pens of Ken Asamatsu, Glynn Owen Barrass, Pierre Comtois, Laurence J. Cornford, Cody Goodfellow, C.J. Henderson, Willie Meikle, Edward Morris, William Patrick Murray, Joe Pulver, Mark Rainey, Peter Rawlik, and Brian M. Sammons, with a special guest appearance by Weird Tales legend John Martin Leahy and an introduction by Robert M. Price.

Now Available: Atomic Age Cthulhu, edited by Glynn Owen Barrass and Brian M. Sammons, from Chaosium

THE DECADE OF THE 1950s: while many places in the world are still recovering from the horrors of the Second World War, it is a good time for America. The economy and industry are roaring, the middle class is exploding, and everyone can own their own home. The nation is filled with pride after a hard-won victory. The future never seemed brighter, and yet... ...never before have we faced a global threat as dire as the atomic bomb. Humanity has always waged war, but now we can eradicate all life on the planet. Educational films promise survival of a nuclear blast. In movies, the classic monsters of the 30s and 40s are replaced by horrors spawned of the atom. Enemies are everywhere, and there are dangers in our midst: devilish rock n roll, morally corrupt books, and sinister comic books corrupt the minds of our youth. The dreaded Red Menace of Communism is poised to overthrow our government and strip-away all of our personal freedoms. Their comrades are everywhere and could be anyone, including your neighbor, your friend, or a member of your family. There are godless Communists spreading across the globe, and they must be stopped by any means necessary!

So here you have the world of Atomic-Age Cthulhu, bringing Lovecraftian horror to the postwar Golden Age.
