Black Herran was a dread demonologist, and the most ruthless general in all Essoran. She assembled the six most fearsome warriors to captain her armies: a necromancer, a vampire lord, a demigod, an orcish warleader, a pirate queen, and a twisted alchemist. Together they brought the whole continent to its knees… Until the day she abandoned her army, on the eve of total victory.
40 years later, she must bring her former captains back together for one final stand, in the small town of Tarnbrooke – the last bastion against a fanatical new enemy tearing through the land, intent on finishing the job Black Herran started years before.
Seven bloodthirsty monsters. One town. Their last hope.
File Under: Fantasy [ Heroes or Horrors? | Flames and Faith | Blood and Guts | Hell Demons ]
After ten years on the run, dodging daemons and debt, reviled magician Edrin Walker returns home to avenge the brutal murder of his friend. Lynas had uncovered a terrible secret, something that threatened to devour the entire city. He tried to warn the Arcanum, the sorcerers who rule the city . . .
Lynas was skinned alive and Walker felt every cut. Now, nothing will stop him from finding the murderer. Magi, mortals, daemons, and even the gods—Walker will burn them all if he has to. After all, it wouldn’t be the first time he’s killed a god.
Tyrant magus Edrin Walker destroyed the monster sent by the Skallgrim, but not before it laid waste to Setharis, and infested their magical elite with mind-controlling parasites. Edrin's own Gift to seize the minds of others was cracked by the strain of battle, and he barely survives the interrogation of a captured magus. There’s no time for recovery though: a Skallgrim army is marching on the mountain passes of the Clanhold. Edrin and a coterie of villains race to stop them, but the mountains are filled with gods, daemons, magic, and his hideous past. Walker must stop at nothing to win, even if that means losing his mind. Or worse…

An Iron Hands story
A tech-priest faces a contagion that affects both organic material and machines – can she – with the aid of the Iron Hands – stop it in time to save an entire world?
READ IT BECAUSE
Delve into the wiles of the servants of Nurgle and discover the lengths to which the Adeptus Mechanicus and Iron Hands will go to preserve both machine and flesh in the face of immaterial horror.
The tech-priests of the Adeptus Mechanicus eschew the weakness of flesh, preferring to show their faith in the Omnissiah by replacing their organics with machine parts. As well as religious, this is practical – disease can't affect the machine… or can it? On the agri-world of Dundas II, Tech-Priest Viridan Shale is dealing with a deadly outbreak brought to the world by the Death Guard. Nothing is safe as the contagion affects flesh and metal alike. With both biology and machinery under threat, she must find a way to defeat the plague and survive. The arrival of Iron Hands Space Marines – who similarly strive to overcome the weakness of flesh – may prove key to the world's salvation… if they are willing to aid Shale and her allies.

Because of all that, I’ve made the decision to publish the magazine quarterly. So many people enjoy the magazine, but they also enjoy the other aspects of Lovecraft eZine, and I want to be able to continue them. Each issue will publish at least ten stories, though — that way you’ll still get almost as much free fiction as you have in the past!
I have a wonderful issue for you this time, and I hope that you will enjoy it.
