Last year at about this time some friends and I released a collection of sci-fi-horror stories with a bit of Lovecraftian flavor to them. My own contribution, "Flight of the Runewright," was quite popular.
This year that same group of friends, plus some newcomers, has turned Space Eldritch II: The Haunted Stars loose upon the world. We hope you enjoy it.
I've only read a couple of the stories, but they were both suitably horrific -- good writing, good storytelling, horrible... um... things.
The anthology closes with my novella, "Fall of the Runewrought," which is set in the same universe as "Flight of the Runewright," but you don't need to have read the first story to love the second. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, and my early readers* have been as well.
Both titles are available from Amazon and from Smashwords. Here are links!
There is no print edition for this newest volume yet, but I'm sure that's coming.
1) Buy from whichever bookseller makes you the happiest, and the most likely to actually read the book.
2) For this volume? Amazon, through the links I've provided. But don't let that stop you from using Smashwords if that's where you want to shop.
I unashamedly adore the above cover, which was lovingly rendered by my friend Carter Reid. I have a poster of his first Space Eldritch cover (pictured to the left, and which I really do need to get framed) and I suspect posters for this cover will begin to circulate sometime in Februrary, likely at the Life, The Universe, and Everything symposium in Provo, Utah.
(*Note: Okay, one of my beta readers, an author for whom I have great respect, said, and I paraphrase, "quit screwing around with novellas, turn this into a novel, and send it to my agent." So there's that.)
