Children of Lovecraft


August 24, 2016 by Laird

Ellen Datlow has another anthology in the wings. Children of Lovecraft drops next month. Ellen included my dark fantasy story, “Oblivion Mode,” set in a fragmented alternate reality.

It features a cast of characters I’ve worked on for  a while, including the otherworldly knight Karl Lochinvar; her companions, Knight Vagrant Marion Hand, retired scout Jonathan Bowie; and  over the hill beasts of the Ur Blood, Rabbit Abbot, Mantooth the war dog, and Flint the faithful charger. This time around the company squares off against Baron Need, a horror from antiquity.

    What a diverse cast of recurring characters. I hope to encounter some of them in your forthcoming Swift to the Chase anthology.

    That’s a pretty sturdy-looking ToC! Thanks for the info – I’ll definitely be picking this up around the end of September.
