Announcing The Cackle of Cthulhu Anthology

July 21, 2016

baenlogo

I’ve been sitting on this news for months. It’s the secret project I was hinting at in my anthology update a few weeks ago. But now that the contract is signed, I can finally announce that I will be editing an anthology for Baen!

The Cackle of Cthulhu will be an anthology of Lovecraftian humor, half reprints and half original fiction. This is a topic I know a thing or two about. There are a number of great Lovecraftian humor stories out there and I will endeavor to collect a fun variety of them in this book, as well as to solicit a number of new ones.

There won’t be an open submission window for this anthology, but if you know of a great Lovecraftian humor story you feel I should take a close look at, please let me know about it in the comments or via social media.
