    Just in case there are any Lovecraft type peoples still reading around here.

    I was randomly chatting with a coworker today about a new author I read (Caitlin Kiernen) and he lit up and started discussing horror authors. Turns out he is the editor for a soon to be released book about Lovecraft-based works. All set in a comical vein. Title? Hastur Pussycat Kill! Kill!

    Caitlin Kiernen's stuff is great BTW.

    Got it preordered [​IMG]

    It looks to be quite funny.

    There's also an anthology coming out this fall that looks interesting. It's a Lovecraftian Sherlock Holmes collection called "Shadows Over Baker Street."

    Hmmm...it's not every day you see HPL depicted as an action hero.

    But then there's always 'The Call of Cthulhu' according to plush toys.

    Wow, for a second there I thought that HPL comic was going to feature tentacle porn!

    Hmm, so now I know how the Japanese got the idea...

    It is currently in the Netherlands, sorry.

    All that signature thing, ya know.

    Actually there is nothing the editor can do once it goes into the publisher's hands. Thus the long unexpected delays.

    Of course gumby already has his copy but I will wait with everyone else.

    Thanks Dwight. I knew it had gone out for the signatures but had thought it would be a bit quicker. Oh well, it looks to be worth the wait.

    Dwight, I'll second Kiernen. I loved both Silk and Threshold. A bit young yet, like Gaiman. Still darn good fiction though.
