The editor at Dead But Dreaming 2 (Miskatonic River Press, 1210 Greene St., #4, Boone IA 50036) says, “I have no agenda other than to collect 100,000 words (hopefully about 17-18 stories) of the best original Lovecraftian/Cthulhu Mythos fiction I can find.”
“What I AM looking for is good stories first and good cosmic horror second. To get some idea of my tastes in Lovecraftian horror, obviously the best place to start is with the original Dead But Dreaming anthology. The introduction there lays out my philosophy of what’s wrong with most Cthulhoid fiction, and the stories in that book should give you some idea of the types of things I like.”
