By Your Love Enveloped

by Terrie Leigh Relf

I saved your letters, and still read them.

The best parts?

“I want to envelop you with love,” and  “I love being inside you, and wish you could know what it feels like to be inside me.”

That was so thoughtful. . .

After you drank a few IPAs laced with a unique herb from my world, I remember thinking, these are the eyes and heart that opened to me, so I preserved them before removing what else lay beneath.

Thank you, my love!

It is exquisite to be nestled inside you.

JournalStone Publishing Announces the acquisition of HorrorWorld.org.

BSAN FRANCISCO, August, 2014 – JournalStone Publishing (JSP) President, Christopher C. Payne is pleased to announce the acquisition of the award winning site, HorrorWorld.org – Horror’s #1 Community on the Web.

Horror World originally started out as Masters of Terror run by Andy Fairclough of the UK. The site featured message boards for UK horror authors. Several years later HorrorNet, which featured message boards for US horror authors folded and Andy invited them to MOT. Eventually Andy changed the name to Horror World and ran it successfully for several years before he decided that he wanted to pursue other interests. He posted in August of 2003 that he was going to let the site stay as it was unless he could find a successor. He actually found two – Ron Dickie and Nanci Kalata, with Ron leaving in August, 2005.

Nanci Kalanta: Nanci Kalanta took over Horror World in October of 2003.  She and Ron Dickie moved Horror World from an unhosted free site to its own URL.  Horror World has been nominated twice for a Stoker Award and twice for the Shocklines Shocker Award winning the Shocker in 2005.  Nanci has done marketing work for several NYTimes Bestselling authors and is the Reviews Editor for Cemetery Dance Magazine and will soon be Reviews Editor for Dark Discoveries Magazine.  She Co-Chaired the 2011 Stoker Weekend with Vince Liaguno.

HW Press, Nanci’s publishing company, has published two anthologies and novels by Lucy Snyder, Steven Savile and Matthew Warner.

Nanci lives in her dream location deep in the Shenandoah Valley at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  She currently works from home in an office she shares with her two cats.  She is an avid book collector and reader.

Two night guards, belonging to different generations and different epochs, this, as every other night are repeating what they did while they were alive. Generation gap in the other world becomes evident, too. And everything would be so endless if, this night, two live people didn’t enter that world of theirs.

Homecoming

By K.Z. Morano

 

My earliest memory was that of my father disappearing into the silver fog.

I cried out his name… first word I ever spoke… but he just kept walking.

Then his replacement came.

A silent semi-man…

He’d lock the doors and mother’s screams would splinter the air… They were of unexplainable pleasure… and pain.

“Hithh thill your father…” mother said as her teeth clattered onto the floor.

That was history.

Then the mist called me…

When I return, I hope my wife would remember what I told her.

To aim straight for the head… and to never look into my eyes…

   DRP-Main-Logo_med

drp-weird-fiction-wwc-1 We are very excited to announce the launch of our latest fiction line: Dark Regions Weird Fiction. This new line will publish exclusively original and unpublished weird fiction, Lovecraftian horror and cosmic horror and will be headed by Brian M. Sammons, one of the co-editors of World War Cthulhu: A Collection of Lovecraftian War Stories.

As with Dark Regions Horror, Fantasy and Sci-Fi, Dark Regions Weird Fiction will have its own respective numbering sequence. World War Cthulhu will be #1 in the Dark Regions Weird Fiction line and designated as such on the spine. All new Dark Regions lines will have a focus on collectible value, ensuring that our customers can display a full matching set of the books from each line on their bookshelves.

Each new line (Dark Regions Horror, Dark Regions Fantasy, Dark Regions Sci-Fi and Dark Regions Weird Fiction) will begin with illustrated anthologies, and we are happy to have World War Cthulhu: A Collection of Lovecraftian War Stories as the illustrated anthology to kick off a very exciting new line for Dark Regions Press!

 

df4683a55b470ad8976fb8.L._V352687790_SX200_Welcome Brian M. Sammons to the Dark Regions Press team!

Brian M. Sammons has been writing reviews on all things horror for more years than he’d care to admit. Wanting to give other critics the chance to ravage his work for a change, he has penned a few short stories that have appeared in such anthologies as Arkham Tales, Horrors Beyond, Monstrous, Dead but Dreaming 2, Horror for the Holidays, Twisted Legends, Mountains of Madness, Deepest Darkest Eden, and others. He has edited the anthologies; Cthulhu Unbound 3, Undead & Unbound, Eldritch Chrome, Edge of Sundown, and Steampunk Cthulhu. For the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game he wrote the book Secrets, has contributed to both Keeper’s Companions, wrote a companion scenario for the Keeper’s Screen, and has had scenarios in the books; Terrors From Beyond, The San Francisco Guidebook, Houses of R’lyeh, Strange Aeons 2, Atomic Age Cthulhu, Island of Ignorance, Punktown, and Doors to Darkness. He is currently far too busy for any sane man.

10shirleyQ&A with John Shirley: What is your story in World War Cthulhu about and what inspired the idea?

I was looking for a fresh Cthulhu angle–it’s quite difficult to get fresh Cthulhu, it takes so much ice to keep it fresh. It occurred to me that Cthulhu has made the Earth his (if it’s a he) domain, his home, for countless ages, and if awakened, would want to defend that home against any threat from Beyond – so Earth’s resources are available for Cthulhu’s own personal convenience. But who will awaken Cthulhu and make the creature aware of the threat? And would Cthulhu have another motivation for acting? What price would he exact from you and me and all humanity? … for his loyalty.

Loyalty by John Shirley

In Loyalty, John Shirley tells a tale of a stranger in a strange land, a man out of time that awakens to a future where horrors unexpected battle mankind. A deal with a tentacled devil is required to save humanity, but will we really be saved?

 

88525Q&A with Jeffrey Thomas: What is your story in World War Cthulhu about and what inspired the idea?

When I was invited to submit a story for WORLD WAR CTHULHU, I was torn between doing something set in Vietnam, a country I know well and love, or that other place I know well and love, my far-future setting Punktown. I finally opted for the latter, to take the premise of world war to another world. The story involves a Lovecraftian entity of my own invention, which I’ve written about in earlier Punktown stories, mainly in my novel MONSTROCITY. Another inspiration for my story, “Wunderwaffe,” came when the editor of a different anthology invited me to submit a story to his book (which unfortunately I never got around to). The theme was Lovecraftian tomes and grimoires, and I wondered what I could do along those lines that was fresh and different. I hope I succeeded in answering that challenge in “Wunderwaffe.”

The illustration for “Wunderwaffe” by Jeffrey Thomas will be revealed to customers who order World War Cthulhu!

Wunderwaffe by Jeffrey Thomas

On an alien world, in a sprawling city called Paxton, or Punktown, to its residents, war, magic and religion are brought together in a hellish way. Colonial Forces are summoned there to fight something, something they are completely unprepared for.
