New Cthulhu 2: More Recent Weird: TOC & Cover

NEWCTHULU2-200Many of the best weird fiction writers (and creators in most other media) have been profoundly influenced by the genre and the mythos H.P. Lovecraft created eight decades ago. Lovecraft’s themes of cosmic indifference, minds invaded by the alien, and the horrors of history – written with a pervasive atmosphere of unexplainable dread – are more relevant than ever as we explore the mysteries of a universe in which our planet is infinitesimal and climatic change is overwhelming it. A few years ago, New Cthulhu : The Recent Weird presented some of the best of this new Lovecraftian fiction from the first decade of the twenty-first century. Now, New Cthulhu 2: More Recent Weird brings you more eldritch tales and even fresher fiction inspired by Lovecraft.

Yamada Monogatari: To Break the Demon Gate Now Available!

BreakDemonGate-200Richard Parks returns to Heian-era Japan with a novel featuring Yamada no Goji (who first appeared for Prime in Yamada Monogatari: Demon Hunter in 2013). Yamada is a minor nobleman of ancient Japan who has lost everything—except a single purpose: keep a promise to the woman he loved. In order to fulfill his vow, all he has to do is fight a horde of demons and monsters, bargain with a few ghosts, outwit the sinister schemers of the emperor’s court, find a way to defeat an assassin who cannot be seen, heard, or touched – and change the course of history. Fortunately, Yamada specializes in achieving the seemingly impossible, so he is sure in some way to succeed… if he doesn’t drink himself into oblivion first.

Available in trade paperback or ebook from fine retailers everywhere!
