So what makes this Lovecraftian Fairy Tales anthology special?
William Meikle: Lovecraft was working on stirring some base emotions in the reader, asking us to reflect on the depth and wonder of the Universe around us. Fairy tales, whether from the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen or from the oral tradition are a similar means of tapping into something old and primal, and a fusion of both gives us added insight into how archetypes and myth might evolve in an age where the most frightening thing is ourselves.
Armand Rosamilia: The mashup of Lovecraft and fairy tales blended together way too easy. It makes you wonder... Reading through these stories you can see how the two parallel and fit nicely together, especially since the base for Cthulhu mythos and fairy tales are so dark and have that underlying gloom to them.
Tell us more about your horror short story.
William Meikle: I have a fascination with the power of music to affect changes in our mental, and physical, picture of how the world works at a basic level. THE PIED PIPER OF PROVIDENCE is one of my explorations of just that. Plus, it was a load of fun exploring how a modern city might respond to an age old menace.
These sixteen tales of depravity, sorcery and madness may offer some illumination, but ultimately there can be no salvation for those who dabble in The Dark Rites of Cthulhu.
Featuring terrifying new stories by Glynn Owen Barrass, Edward M. Erdelac, John Goodrich, Scott T. Goudsward, T. E. Grau, C.J. Henderson, Tom Lynch, William Meikle, Christine Morgan, Robert M. Price, Pete Rawlik, Josh Reynolds, Brian M. Sammons, Sam Stone, Jeffrey Thomas and Don Webb and edited by Brian M. Sammons, The Dark Rites of Cthulhu shares cautionary tales set in a multiverse of jealousy, greed, desperation and naivety and is guaranteed to delight students of the Dark Arts and followers of the Great Old Ones alike.
Horror Guide to Massachusetts is a map to geographical locations, real and fictional, utilized in horror tales set in New England. It is hard to say which is more disquieting, terror amidst staid Yankees in a familiar setting or horror in obscure, forgotten corners of the Commonwealth. Both have their uses as weapons in the battle to scare you out of your wits.
ADVANCED PRAISE FOR Horror Guide to Massachusetts
“This is a unique and ingenious way of highlighting Massachusetts towns referenced in horror books, stories, TV and movies. Want to know if your town or region is featured in a published novel or television show? Check out this reference book out by the Brothers Goudsward. With a quick description of settings and their context in each story, this no-frills reference is packed with hundreds of scenes from all aspects of the genre, with indices that allow the reader to zero-in on any locale. I’ve never heard of any other work that has so completely done this, nor have I heard of many of the works mentioned inside. Without this guide, I never would have. Highly recommend it.”
Daniel G. Keohane, Bram Stoker Award nominated author of
Solomon’s Grave and Margaret's Ark
“We need more eccentric guides like this from the Goudsward Brothers! Give them a turn at the steering wheel and you won't be disappointed. From horror flick locations to the horrific Dover Demon's stomping ground, join them on a creepy journey around the Bay State!”
Loren Coleman, Director of the International Cryptozoology Museum, and author of Monsters of Massachusetts and 30 other books
“Horror Guide to Massachusetts is intensely awesome, especially for an antique Lovecraftian such as myself. As edifying as it is entertaining, this wonderful book is not only a guide to those spectral spots, historical or mythical, in Massachusetts, but serves also as a guide to a multitude of horror films, weird fiction, &c. As one who has been haunted by these places of dark hoary history, this book inspires eerie dreams and fond enchanting memories.”
W. H. Pugmire, critically acclaimed prose poet and author
“A well-crafted book full of marvelous details! It's an insightful compilation that's both accurate and entertaining. I'm thrilled to see two of my Massachusetts horror films included here.”
Brinke Stevens, actress, director, producer, writer, legendary Scream Queen
”A ghoulishly delightful tour through the darkest haunted corners of Massachusetts. You'll learn a lot – and find some great new reads in the process! Don't miss it.”
Nate Kenyon, award-winning author of Sparrow Rock, Diablo: The Order, and Day One
For countless centuries, mankind has watched as the sun goes down knowing that Luna will rise in its place, to rain her brilliant shards of light upon the Earth. But for the cursed and afflicted, that silvery orb brings horror and death.

From the American Old West to the Victorian-era streets of London, from the Far East to worlds undiscovered, from steampunk to Nazis, Stranger Worlds takes us on 21 horror-filled journeys from the twisted minds of some of the best writers.

Living in a fortified cul-de-sac in the shadow of Boston a group of refugees have etched out their survival. At times they're not sure who to fear more, the zombies wandering the streets or the power mad "controller" of Boston, Richard Crenshaw.
Until the day a crazed environmentalist shows up at the gates with promises of "the cure" disrupting their lives.
With a handful of volunteers, Catherine sets off with her team to follow the half-mad scientist to Florida to where he believes the cure for the zombie plague exists. When they arrive in the swamp they are greeted by unexpected horrors both human and inhuman.
The insanity of the scientist, Pierce leads them on a chase through the swamps of Florida searching the cure that ends badly for everyone.
