The Endless Fall di Jeffrey Thomas

img_1743The Endless Fall and Other Weird Fictions è la nuova raccolta di racconti di Jeffrey Thomas, creatore dell’acclamata ambientazione Punktown.

La raccolta, pubblicata dalla Lovecraft eZine Press e disponibile in versione sia cartacea che digitale anche per il pubblico italiano, comprende quattordici racconti, un’occasione ottima per conoscere il mirabolante mondo narrativo di Jeffrey Thomas.

Di Jeffrey Thomas Hypnos ha pubblicato il racconto “Nel Limbo” all’interno dell’antologia Nuovi Incubi.

(From the volume’s back cover)

“Respected as one of today’s leading figures of weird fiction for his striking imagination, versatility, and deeply emotional stories, Jeffrey Thomas here offers up fourteen searing tales. Included are the haunting and surreal “Ghosts in Amber,” in which a man is compelled to visit a mysterious derelict factory that harbors chilling secrets; “Jar of Mist,” which focuses on a father who, in seeking to understand his daughter’s suicide, encounters a dream-like other realm; “Those Above,” which imagines an alternate Victorian society controlled by vast monstrous entities from beyond; and the title novelette “The Endless Fall,” which concerns an astronaut who crash-lands on an unknown forested world where time seems to work in an alien way, and where he finds he is unfortunately not alone.”

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”. 

 

Children of Lovecraft

imageDark Horse e Ellen Datlow, vincitrice del Premio hugo e del Bram Stoker Award, si uniscono per dare vita ad una nuova antologia ispirata ai mondi di H.P.Lovecraft, Children of Lovecraft. 

Non si tratta di racconti in “stile” Lovecraft, bensì di prosa originale, sullo sfondo delle atmosfere lovecraftiane, ma senza riferimenti diretti a Lovecraft o alle sue opere. Un mix di toni e stili che riflette i punti di vista e le sensibilità artistiche dei tanti notevoli Autori qui raccolti come Laird Barron, Brian Evenson, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Jeffrey Ford, JohnLangan, A.C.Wise, Livia Llewellyn e molti altri.

Copertina di Mike Mignola, creatore di Hellboy.

 

 

 

Dark Horse teams up with Hugo and Bram Stoker award-winning editor Ellen Datlow to present a new anthology of original stories “inspired” by Lovecraft’s mythos, Children of Lovecraft.

There is no direct reference to Lovecraft works or worlds in the stories but a feeling of common lovecraftian ground in which the different perspective and peculiars styles of these great Authors create a lovely work of a lovecraftian modern weird.

Featuring work by Laird Barron, Brian Evenson, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Jeffrey Ford, John Langan, Livia Llewellyn and many more, with a stunning cover by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.
