Autumn Cthulhu

imageRicordate il progetto Kickstarter di Lovecraft ezine Press del 2015?

Ebbene, ecco il risultato: Autumn Cthulhu  è ora disponibile, in versione cartacea e digitale.

Diciannove racconti ambientati nella stagione lovecraftiana che è sinonimo, per gli autori e il curatore, di morte e decadimento. Per citare la pesentazione della raccolta, “il vero senso della vita è che non vi è alcun senso”.

 

 

And in the autumn of the year, when the winds from the north curse and whine, and the red-leaved trees of the swamp mutter things to one another in the small hours of the morning under the horned waning moon, I sit by the casement and watch… — H.P. Lovecraft, “Polaris”

 

Remember the Kickstarter Project by Lovecraft ezine Press, back in 2015? 

Well, here the result: the anthology Autumn Cthulhu is now available, in paper and digital version.

Nineteen stories, in the lovecraftian season that, for the Authors and the Editor, means death. And to quote the presentation of the anthology, “The true meaning of life is that there is no meaning”.
