FRONTIER CTHULHU...available now for pre-order

People have asked: Where's Stewart? Okay, well..maybe some people have asked that. Somewhere.

I have been amazingly busy with the new school year. It may be a bit before things lighten up. I just thought in the meantime that I would announce the release of FRONTIER CTHULHU. Published by Chaosium and edited by William Jones. This anthology, like the Elder Signs Press anthology "High Seas Cthulhu" is a collection of stories dealing with the mythos created by H. P. Lovecraft. It also features my own story, "Children of the Mountain".
Available for pre-order now, releasing officially October 26th. Holy Halloween!

If you want to read more about "Frontier Cthulhu" check out this entry in William Jones' blog. I'll be writing more about this and an upcoming convention in a few days.

Well, crap...if you keep getting published at this rate, I'll be broke by January. Oh, wait, I'm broke now. Broker.

Hey, everybody, if you read this blog and like this blog (and Stewart and his style and struggling writers everywhere)click on the damn link and order these books! Support means more than saying Congrats.

I ordered High Seas Cthulhu last night. Then I see this. Hmmmm

Stewart Sternberg said...

Thanks Jon. Now I'll have to give you the money we spoke about.

Charles...after this there will be "Little House on the Prairie Cthulhu", "Gone With the Wind Cthulhu" and the ever anticipated "The Witch and The Wardrobe Cthulhu." And later next year, Jon's suggested anthology: "Trailer Park Cthulhu". In time for the national elections.

Very cool.

I tried reading this post outloud, but became so distressed at my attempts to pronounce the name of the book that I went and flossed my teeth.

Congrats on yer publication!

Kate S said...

I'VE been wondering where you'd gone off to. Glad to know you've survived and have a new book out.

Stewart Sternberg said...

Thanks Kate. I haven't even had time to browse blogs. I also need a new laptop. That's not helping matters either.

Franki..."First, say a hard "C". Like cup. Then, 'thoo'. So..C-THOO. Now...add LOO. So..phonetically...lets put it all together...C-THOOO-LOO

Tomorrow we'll do "Yog-Sothoth" without giggling.

Hi Stewart,

Wanted to drop you a note, and I found your blog, so here's your note. ;)

I've read most of HIGH SEAS CTHULHU, and your story is so far the crowning piece among many very strong tales. Excellent work, with a deep sense of human tragedy as well as other-worldly horror. That's what a Lovecraftian tale really oughta be about, I think.

Looking forward to reading yours in FRONTIER CTHULHU.

Man o Man, my reading pile grows faster and faster. Congrats.

I tried your little tongue twister (C-THOOO-LOO) It doesn't seem to help when I see the actual letters.

Anyway, one day I will do you say it...oh yeah, C-THOOO-LOO and Lovecraft...hopefully before the Trailer park edition comes out.

Did I show my illiteracy by saying I needed to Google Lovecraft? Actually, I should wikipedia it, because I am learning from my students that anything I want to know is on wikipedia. You can take that to the bank!

Talk to you soon...

I don't think I can manage that.

Christina said...

Anything that comes out in October HAS to be great. I've been really busy too so I can understand the lack of time for other things. I hope you are doing well with your projects. I miss talking with you.

William Jones said...

Jon has the first spot in Trailer Park Cthulhu. :)

Stewart Sternberg said...

Mark thanks for the compliment. You know, I struggled writing that short story. I kept being tempted to somehow make a political statement about slavery to avoid feeling as though I was exploiting the misery. However, I just felt that misery is universal, whether a soldier's battle field horrors or the horrors of the slave hold.

Mr. Miller...when are you coming back this way? Interesting that you are referring to them now as "my students".

Giggle away, SQT. Christina...good to be missed.

Dr. Jones, you've made Jon a happy man.
