After much discussion, it has finally arrived!
Behold: Cthulhu Deep Down Under – Volume 2, featuring yours truly with my story Where the Madmen Meet.
This one has truly been a long time coming, and it is a story that I am extraordinarily proud of, and a book that I am truly pleased to be a part of, filled as it is with great stories by excellent authors. A big thank you to IFWG Publishing Australia for putting the book out.
If you’re a fan of existential dread and cosmic horror with an Aussie twist, I heartily recommend you pick this one up!
About Cthulhu Deep Down Under – Volume 2:
H. P. Lovecraft pioneered a fusion of terror and science fiction themes, and is widely credited as having invented the sub-genre of ‘cosmic horror’. While America’s New England was the focus and setting for many of Lovecraft’s tales, the Southern Hemisphere held a fascination for him. Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica were featured locations in his Mythosian novellas.
In tribute to this, presented here is an assortment of the finest Australian dark fiction, bringing you a second volume of Lovecraftian stories of wonder and dread. Featured are new tales by ROBERT HOOD, LEE MURRAY, KIRSTYN McDERMOTT and SILVIA BROWN.
Cthulhu Deep Down Under Volume 2 takes us back below the equator, into the bizarre and headlong towards horror. From mist-shrouded peaks and canyons of Melanesian islands, through rainforests and scorching deserts of the island continent of Terra Australis, and across the Tasman Sea to the inhospitable hinterlands of New Zealand.
