Cassilda’s Song (Chaosium) , edited by Joseph S. Pulver Sr., has been nominated for Anthology and -- thanks to Selena Chambers’ The Neurastheniac”-- Short Fiction.

Black Wings IV (PS Publishing), edited by S.T. Joshi, has been nominated for Anthology.

She Walks in Shadows (Innsmouth Free Press), edited by Silvia Moreno-Garcia & Paula R. Stiles, has been nominated for Anthology.

For the full list of finalists, check here.

Best of luck to everyone in October!

It’s been a bit of a wait, but Mike Davis of The Lovecraft EZine reported today that the Kindle edition of Cassilda’s Song is now available, with the print edition coming soon.

Edited by Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., Cassilda’s Song is a new anthology of tales inspired by Robert W. Chambers’ King in Yellow mythos -- & all these tales are written by women. As most readers of this LJ already know, I’m one of these women!

A glance at the TOC should reveal why I’m so happy about this. And why KIY enthusiasts really ought to consider adding this item to their libraries, electronic or otherwise.

The Annihilation Score (Laundry Files, #6)The Annihilation Score by Charles Stross

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bob Howard’s wife – and fellow Laundry agent – Dr. Dominique “Mo” O’Brien finally gets her own adventure in this highly entertaining sixth volume of the Laundry Files. Recruited to help combat a growing plague of superheroes (yes, you read that right), Mo and her soul-devouring bone violin must assemble their own team of heroes while dealing with eldritch horrors, The King in Yellow, and British institutional bureaucracy.

Guess which one creates the most havoc?

As with all the Laundry novels, this one offers a satisfying mixture of tongue-in-cheek humor and genuinely chilling moments. Character depth seemed a bit better than usual, and female fans of the Laundry will probably find Mo’s “voice” convincing. Some familiarity with Robert W. Chambers might help this time around, though.

I am very, very happy to announce that I’ve had recent sales to two exciting dark lit projects.

Editor Joseph S. Pulver, Sr. just accepted my short story “Dancing the Mask” for his all-women’s King in Yellow anthology, Cassilda’s Song. This is due out in 2015 from Chaosium. Joe is pretty much the go-to guy for Robert W. Chambers projects, so I can’t wait to see how the TOC for this one shapes up.

In the weird verse department, editor S.T. Joshi has taken two poems of mine for the second issue of Spectral Realms. This elegant perfect-bound journal appears twice yearly from Hippocampus Press. I was fortunate enough to have a couple of poems in the premiere issue as well, and found myself in amazing company.

The Lovecraft eZine's latest issue (#30, April 2014) is up now online, & it's a King in Yellow special.

Guest edited by none other than Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., it features 6 stories (including Robert W. Chambers' "The Yellow Sign," just in case you need to catch up) plus one poem -- a sestina by Yours Truly.

There's also a monthly column from noted Lovecraftian editor/scholar Robert M. Price, a KIY comic strip, & full color illustrations for all the stories. The cover by Adam Baker is particularly jaw-dropping.

An actual print edition of this issue is already available, & Kindle or Nook editions will be available soon. For more information -- or to read this issue online for free -- check here.
