Innsmouth Fundraiser: Final Plea

The Innsmouth Free Press fundraiser is not going super-well. Last year, we made a little over $800. So far, we’ve made $400. This means we’ll end with less money this year, even though we have more readers. To meet our goal, we’ve considered sacrificing a staff member to Dagon in exchange for money (but Orrin refused to die), asking for a rich patron to sponsor us (turns out I have no rich relatives) and creating a Tyler of V Must …

Wanna a Free Book? Blog

We’ve got three print copies of the urban fantasy thriller Fraterfamilias. You can help yourself to one. With one condition: you’ve got to blog about it. Good, bad, indifferent, all we ask in exchange for one of these fine books is your blog post. Caveat: we’ll only ship to the United States or Canada.

The book, in a nutshell: recently deceased artist Paul Farrell is in trouble. And his suicide-by-cop didn’t make trouble go away. When Paul’s Russian paleoanthropologist …

2011 Fundraiser: Week 2

Here we are, two weeks into our fundraiser and I must be honest: it’s not looking good. We’ve raised $350, which means that, at this rate, we are bound to make less money than we made last year and finish extremely far from our intended goal of $1500.

If every person who follows us on Twitter gave a dollar, we’d have enough money to cover the fundraiser. If every person who visits us every month gave a dollar, we’d have …

Shivers and Sighs Week

Welcome to Shivers and Sighs week, running February 7 to February 14. Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to bring out your mushy side, but since this is Innsmouth Free Press, we can’t offer you a heart-shaped box without a beating heart in it. Thus, we are presenting a whole week of interviews with paranormal romance writers, articles on horror and romance, reviews and other goodies.

Join us for a bit of romance and a bit of darkness:

2011 Fundraiser: Week 1

The “I Heart Innsmouth” fundraiser has been going on for a week and we have amassed a little over $100. That’s far from our goal of $1500.

Times are tough, but Innsmouth depends on your donations. We are not a subscription-based website, so you, dear reader, are the lifeblood of Innsmouth. Every year, we hear of zines and magazines which went the way of the dodo. We don’t want to let Innsmouth go extinct. To keep going, we need your …

January 2011 Recap

The first month of the year is over and we’ve been busy here at Innsmouth, preparing for February. February is Fundraiser Month and marks the release of our sixth fiction issue. We are also offering special, romance-themed content for Shivers and Sighs Week, which runs February 8-14 in honour of Saint Valentine’s Day.

February is Fundraiser Month


February marks the beginning of the “I Heart Innsmouth” campaign. Last year, we raised more than $800 CAD and this year, the squidlings behind this little eldritch operation are attempting to raise $1500 CAD.

Innsmouth Free Press was officially born in March of 2009, out of little more than spunk and cyclopean dreams. Last year, the folks at Innsmouth produced three short-fiction issues, including a special multiethnic issue; organized several contests, including the Poe Haiku competition; and reviewed, interviewed and …

The following three locations will be added to the Walking Guide to Innsmouth beginning in February. These locations can be used in the creation of new Monster Bytes. Monster Bytes are short, fictional newspaper-like accounts of incidents around the imaginary town of Innsmouth.

Marsh Hotel

Innsmouth’s finest hotel – and once a mansion owned by the affluent Marsh family – is decorated with lovely, sea-faring motifs. Although the rooms are small and the plumbing can be rickety, Marsh Hotel …
