H.P. Lovecraft (Aug. 20, 1890 – March 15, 1937) was a man possessed of strange genius. He is one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th century. Clive Barker, Stephen King, Peter Straub, Robert Bloch, Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, and countless other writers, artists, and filmmakers refer to Lovecraft as one of their greatest influences.
And although most would gladly avoid a chance to walk around in Lovecraft’s shoes for a bit – considering the madness that governed his life and career, I was personally thrilled to hear that Dagan Books had a call for submissions and excited to tackle a daring new Lovecraftian project that took his work in bold new directions.
After a few weeks of intense research, writing and editing, I turned in a horrific little tale titled “The Assistant from Innsmouth” that was accepted for inclusion in the anthology.
So, when the submission period finally closed on September 15th, and all the dust had settled, the project was filled with stories and artwork that will surely impress even the most-hardened Lovecraft fanatic.
It is now my great pleasure to announce “Cthulhurotica,” a new take on the Cthulhu Mythos, “where sex and madness meet.”
