Hello ghouls and gals! It’s October, Halloween time, and time for our third and final Innsmouth Magazine issue of the year. Before you dig into the pages of this magazine, we’d like to update you on what’s been going around Innsmouth.
Our biggest news is the succesful funding campaign of our upcoming anthology Sword and Mythos. Second of all, we have some other releases for 2013. Bryan Thao Worra’s Weird poetry collection, Demonstra, will be out in the spring, followed by the urban fantasy novel, Confraternitas (second in the Fraterfamilias trilogy). Sword and Mythos will be out in the fall and Innsmouth Presents: Jazz Age Cthulhu should be out in December. We’d also like to remind you that subscriptions to Innsmouth Magazine may be purchased via Weightless Books.
Finally, before you dig into the stories, the tagline of Innsmouth Magazine (Bet you haven’t noticed it, hu?), which has been “a magazine of Lovecraftian fiction,” is being changed to “a magazine of Weird fiction.” It doesn’t mean we’ll cease to publish Lovecraftian fiction, but, with the release of Fungi this December and the release of a Weird poetry collection next year, we have begun to move in a broader direction that matches the approach at our website, where we blog about a bunch of horror topics, with a special interest in the Weird and Lovecraftian.
What you can expect from Innsmouth Magazine, therefore, is a Weird vibe with some Lovecraftian stuff for good measure.
Now to the stories in this issue. There’s a dark, foreboding island on a loch. A restaurant which redefines the term “Today’s Special.” A Lovecraftian steampunk adventure set in Liberia. Dive into issue 11 of Innsmouth Magazine. We’ll be back with issue 12 in February.
