CHTHONIC Authors and ToC Announcement

0

The selection process for the next MMP anthology reflected the theme, Migraineers. There was a sensation of compression, a certain claustrophobia to our reading of the (literally teeming, like worms, or molemen!) submissions, a shortness of breath, a distinct impression that time, and air, and light were in short supply. And, like light glimpsed dimly in some noisome cavern world, the stand out tales were instantly attractive, obvious choices. So, we reached out and grasped them, bringing them into our little book of underground terrors and marvels! Here they are, then, the authors and their stories, some well known, some new, as is our custom, and in no particular order as yet. We’ll release the final order of the ToC closer to the on-sale date, which, incidentally, will be 5 December 2017, with pre-orders becoming available a month previous to the on-sale date. Also, please stay tuned to MMP for the next open submissions call for the first of our 2018 anthologies! That announcement before the end of this week. Thanks for reading with Martian Migraine Press!

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…
