The Assaults of Chaos

When first I heard about S.T. Joshi writing a Lovecraftian novel I became very excited. The wait has been long, but The Assaults of Chaos: A Novel about H.P. Lovecraft has just been made available for preorder with publication set to August 2013. It is possible to preorder the limited edition hardcover with bonus chapbook (limited to 500 copies) from Hippocampus Press here

A place in a dream

Thank you old friend for inviting me to blog with you! I hope you will accept this invitation in return. Join me for a sip of moon brew before descending, here in a scene from a dream. I have been stealing time to sketch some of mine before they are lost in the Rivers of Time – hard to catch and hard to get quite right. Photoshop has proved an excellent tool with which to try though. Fast and easy to edit – should new details be discovered.

In The Midst of Life We Are In Death

I have been writing lyrics for a number of bands for the past six years. The latest release featuring lyrics by me is the debut full-length In The Midst of Life We Are In Death From Danish death metal squad Cerekloth.

The album is out now on CD, LP and Digital Album and it can be purchased from their label Hell’s Headbangers. A preview of the track Born of the Void, to which I wrote the lyrics, is to be found here

Reanimators in the void?

There is a new Mythos book about to be published soon which has caught my attention. Reanimators by Peter Rawlik was supposed to be published on June 27th 2013 in Europe, but as Night Shade Books recently ceased its operations the future of this publication is uncertain. At least nothing official has been announced yet. It is my hopes this book is being picked up by another publishing house soon.

Description from Amazon.com:

Two men, a bitter rivalry, and a quarter-century of unspeakable horrors. Herbert West’s crimes against nature are well-known to those familiar with the darkest secrets of science and resurrection. Obsessed with finding a cure for mankind’s oldest malady, death itself, he has experimented upon the living and dead, leaving behind a trail of monsters, mayhem, and madness. But the story of his greatest rival has never been told — until now. Dr. Stuart Hartwell, a colleague and contemporary of West, sets out to destroy him by uncovering the secrets of his terrible experiments, only to become what he initially despised: a reanimator of the dead. For more than twenty years, the two scientists race each other to master the mysteries of life . . . and unlife. From the grisly battlefields of the Great War to the haunted coasts of Dunwich and Innsmouth, from the halls of fabled Miskatonic University to the sinking of the Titanic, their unholy quests leave their mark upon the world — and create monsters of them both.
