Lovecraftian Fiction

I discovered the writing of H P Lovecraft back in the very early Seventies in secondhand British paperback editions.

I came to him, not looking for horror, but for Science Fiction as that was where my prime interest lay back then. I believe the first story I read was THE DUNWICH HORROR in one of those paperback editions.

That was enough for me to seek out the rest, and I still remember a first reading of AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS while sitting on the back steps of our house on a hot summer's day. From there I quickly found Derleth, Clark Ashton Smith and the whole Weird Tales alumni and they in turn led me up to more relatively modern times via Bloch, Matheson and Ramsey Campbell.

It was only natural that I should turn to some Lovecraftian conceits in my own writing, and in recent years I've found there's a wide variety of markets willing to share this wee corner of my obsession, from the likes of Dark Regions Press, The Lovecraft Ezine, Chaosium, Golden Goblin Press and a variety of anthologies and magazines.

My list of Lovecraft-inspired works grows apace, and here's where you can find the most recent. You'll find details below.
