What lurks in the damp recesses of urban existence?

These new tales of weird fiction are a blend of urban horror, pulp noir and dark fantasy. Lovecraftian horrors and Cthulhu Mythos monsters have never been this gritty.

From haunted Kingsport across the globe to shadowy Berlin and the otherworldly music of Bangalore. From kind, sexy neighbors to cyberpunk paranoia an The King in Yellow. A journalist's search with unexpected results. What really happened to Walter Gilman, and what is the origin of the witch Keziah Mason? And witness humanity fail against the forces from beyond.

From weird sounds to screams of madness.

Entropy. Chaos. Disorder. Death.

Beneath cities, on the outskirts of ruined, aeon-old cities and INSIDE cities. The stench, the decay, the hopelesness... it is everywhere.

Welcome to URBAN CTHULHU: NIGHTMARE CITIES.

Authors: Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., Glynn Owen Barrass, T. E. Grau, John Goodrich, Ian Davey, Thomas Strømsholt, Jayaprakash Satyamurthy, Morten Carlsen, Robert Tangiers. Introduction by the editor.

Artwork: Paul Carrick (Cover) & Tom Kristensen (interior b/w).




















THE MUSICAL BOX OF WONDERS
by Paul StJohn Mackintosh


"Poems that are in turns elegaic and entertaining, technically adept and resourceful, and treating a variety of themes Western and Eastern with grace and dignity. What more could one hope for in a collection?"
-Alan BrownJohn.
This collection showcases imagination and lyricism, and confessional landscapes from the boundaries between culture and nature, mundane and divine, the everyday and the extraordinary. The volume brings together themes ancient and modern, Scottish and English, Asian and European, and contains the fruits of ten years spent living in Asia, including intensely personal poems about the writer’s family, all handled with great tactile strength, resourcefulness and a unique, poetic power. The result is a genuinely new voice, with a style and spirit seldom heard in British poetry for decades.

Paul StJohn Mackintosh is a British poet, writer and translator. A graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge, and a former executive committee member of the Translators Association of the Society of Authors, he has published translations from Japanese and Romanian, and is also an independent film producer. With his family, he divides his time between Hungary and Asia.




















AUGUST DERLETH REDUX:
THE WEIRD TALE 1937-1971
by John D. Haefele


This monograph, published during the centennial year of August Derleth’s birth, contains comprehensive, cutting-edge scholarship that will revitalize scholarship in Derleth, the man and his work. With rare clarity, Haefele demonstrates the essential role Derleth played in the “tale” of the literary Weird Tale genre, while carefully examining the events which led to millions of books by H. P. Lovecraft and others circulating world-wide. Here we find Derleth firmly re-established along-side S. T. Joshi as the eminent champion of Lovecraft he was.

Foreword by Don Herron.

Limited Edition. 150 copies only.












THE UNSPEAKABLE AND OTHERS
by Dan Clore


Misanthropic tales of the macabre and the outré with a unique blend of the grotesque and the perverse.

Enter the Lovecraftian universe of screaming horrors and Cthulhuvian insanity. Experience dark wonders and fantastic tales spanning the complete spectrum of the bizarre. These visions are what nightmares are made of. Throbbing at the shadowy heart of it all is the grotesque Lord Weÿrdgliffe and his web of penny dreadfuls. In addition are bleak, satirical stories and essays with subjects ranging from the serious to the outrageous and hilarious, as well as strange, dark poetry.

This collection has it all. This is a revised and expanded edition of Dan Clore’s highly praised The Unspeakable and Others, with new artwork by the famous weird artist, Allen Koszowski. Cover illustrations and all b/w interior illustrations are by this gifted artist. The foreword is by S. T. Joshi.

This collection is a rare treat for any connoisseur of the weird and the bizarre.
