( Look! Another blog post! This time within weeks instead of months! Next up: within days. But, for now, another announcement. )
Tim Deal recently announced that Shroud Publishing is having a special sale. Tim has pulled out an archived box of Shroud #1 and is selling copies for $5. Contributors to the premier issue include Tom Piccirilli, Michael Laimo, Stephen Mark Rainey, and Tim Waggoner. There’s also an interview with Brian Keene. Fans of dark fiction, especially those who like to get their hands on limited edition magazines and books for their collections take note.
But wait, there’s more.
The goal of the sale? Shroud is building up their finances to complete, “… our most ambitious effort yet, a fully illustrated dark poetry collection that has been two years in the making.”
That would be The Terror at Miskatonic Falls. I was ecstatic to read those words because I’ve wanted to buy and read this book since I first read the submission guidelines. Followers of this blog know that it includes a triptych of my poems, but I would still be excited even if the book did not include my work because it’s an interesting, unusual project. Part poetry, part police procedural, part graphic novel. Spoon River Anthology infused with Lovecraft and illustrated by…well, illustrated by Danny Evarts. And, really, I’m particularly excited for Danny because he has put so much of his time and talents into this book.
So if you like the idea of scooping up the premiere copy of Shroud before all the copies are gone or you are intrigued by The Terror at Miskatonic Falls and want to help send it to print sooner rather than later, please consider purchasing Shroud #1.
Plus, it’s late October. You should be buying lots of dark fiction in late October, so what’s $5 more? Go on.
