Innsmouthbreathers ToC Announcement

0

The last quarter of 2018 saw some delays and general hold-ups here at MMP HQ, but we’re happy to announce that operations are back on track and the two anthologies that were planned for 2019 are still on their way. The first book will be Innsmouthbreathers: Cautionary Tales of Cthulhu Mythos Fandom.

Here’s the Table of Contents, replete with riffs and re-presentations on classic Lovecraftian themes, sassy takes on social justice, and liberal sprinklings of satire and parody. There are authors herein that we’ve had the pleasure of publishing before and a good many new names as well that we’re excited to introduce…

The Dude Who Collected Lovecraft — Nick Mamatas and Tim Pratt
The Yuggoth Club — John Linwood Grant
Beautiful In Their Sins — Lawrence Berry
Two Aunts and the Cornwall Horror — K. G. Anderson
The Weird Shadow Over Melrose — Tom Breen
The Theory of the Weird Fiction Critic — Jayaprakash Satyamurthy
The Last Cultist — Helen E. Davis
The Incorrect Translations of Juan Romero — K. Sullivan
The Statement of Randy Carter — Patrick Berry
The Bane of Robin Butler — Rose Banks
The Referendum Over Innsmouth — S. L. Edwards

Migraineers, we think you’ll get a serious kick out of this one. If you’re a fan of Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos, but more importantly, a fan with a sense of humour about yourself and this… thing that we all love, then you’ll find much to enjoy in this anthology of cautionary tales. Innsmouthbreathers has a release date of TUESDAY 16 APRIL 2019, and pre-orders will be available soon. We’ll be keeping you updated on all related news, so if you haven’t done so already, Like us on the ol’ Facebook and follow us on the Twitter.

The second 2019 anthology is, of course, the much anticipated¬†Monstrous Outlines,¬†a book of camouflage-themed horror. The slush reading for this one has been challenging, but we are currently (finally!) getting into the shallow end of that pool. There is no final story count for this book, not yet, but we have confirmed three authors so far, and the Maybe file is healthy. Authors, if you’ve received a rejection for your submission, we’d like to apologize for the lengthy wait times. If you haven’t heard from us, yay or nay, take heart, as we expect to be done with all the subs within two weeks. Thank you for your patience.

Cthulhusattva Full Cover Reveal

0

The artwork? Stunning, distinctive, strangely thrilling: a Mythos take on The Devil trump card of the traditional tarot. A mystical Cthulhu figure, wings spread and seated comfortably, haloed in a sickly golden glow, a ghastly divine energy bleeding out from the gaps in its monstrous form. One wrist is chained, the other free and raised in some unspeakable benediction. The recipients of this blessing (a woman, a man) kneel below, naked, but uncowed, gazing with unflinching eyes upon this vision of Enlightenment and Horror. The artwork is by Alix Branwyn; the cover design is simple, uncluttered (so as to let the artwork speak at proper volume); and the book that will lie between these covers? That book is Cthulhusattva: Tales of the Black Gnosis. We give you the full frontal view…

Martian Migraine Press: the Best Kind of Headache

Cthulhusattva ToC Announcement

0

Is there wisdom in insanity? Enlightenment in blackest despair? Higher consciousness in the depths of chaos? These are the questions we asked of authors who submitted stories to the Martian Migraine Press anthology for 2016. And we here at MMP, along with project editor Scott R Jones, are thrilled to announce that the book (after many months of work, and nearly 400 stories read) is finally complete. With cover art by Alix Branwyn, the groundbreaking novella by Ruthanna Emrys, The Litany of Earth, and stories from some of the finest established writers working in Weird Fiction today, along with several new and exciting voices, Cthulhusattva: Tales of the Black Gnosis, releases officially on Monday May 23, 2016, with pre-orders soon available. Keep watching this space, follow MMP on Twitter @MartianMigraine, and of course Like us on Facebook for updates, contests, and author interviews.

In the meantime, enjoy our editors’ meditative antics as he announces the roster of writers that will fill the pages of Cthulhusattva. Or spare yourself some appalling amateur theatre and drop below the video for the full ToC. It should be noted that the story order for the anthology as it appears here is not yet finalized, but it’s very close. (Every day we be shufflin’ as we Keep It R’lyeh at MMP HQ!)
