Days Micotic: Announcing Fungi for 2012

In 2012, Orrin Grey and Silvia Moreno-Garcia tackle the darkest of all horrors: fungi. William Hope Hodgson’s “The Voice in the Night”, and its Japanese film adaptation, Matango, terrified and fascinated the editors. And now, they’re back for more.

Fungi is an anthology of dark speculative fiction (horror, fantasy, science fiction, and any other variant, such as steampunk) focused solely on the fungal. Full guidelines for the anthology will be posted in December (Don’t send anything, yet!).

Apocalypse Week: Welcome to Destruction

It’s Apocalypse Week here at Innsmouth Free Press, from today until October 31. For our Halloween theme this year, we decided to look towards the future doom that awaits us. We thought it was appropriate, considering Lovecraft’s pseudo-apocalyptic proclivities. After all, we are all going to be eaten by Cthulhu in the end, no?

What can you look forward to? Crazy robots, disease, vampires (and more vampires!), zombies, and even a suggested playlist of music you might want to listen …

Found on the Net: Dr. Seuss and Cthulhu

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia

It’s hard being a parent these days. Kids don’t want to worship Dagon. They just want to play video games and text message each other. What’s a parent to do to ensure the little ones are properly indoctrinated into Cthulhuism? Why, you can start by reading them a copy of “The Call of Cthulhu” by H.P. Lovecraft. For beginning readers.

DrFaustusAU, an Australian illustrator, has placed full-colour illustrations of “The Call” (as if it were penned …

Great Fall MB Series

There’s something afoul in Innsmouth. Well, more afoul than usual. A group of Innsmouth contributors have gathered to produce a series of interconnected Monster Bytes (MBs for short) to weave a plot of mystery, death and dread together. You can follow all the MBs in the series here.

MBs are one of our quirks. It’s a shared-universe playground and we do play with each other’s creations. However, this MB series is notable for the level of cooperation going on …
