In the Innsmouth Free Press

In case you haven't spotted it, in recent months I've been posting a number of short bits over at the Innsmouth Free Press, an online journal somewhat akin to The Onion meets horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, if he'd had multicultural sensitivities.

Formally, "Innsmouth Free Press is a fictional newspaper publishing faux news pieces – lovingly called Monster Bytes – in a Lovecraftian/Cthulhu Mythos universe, as well as original short fiction stories."

As a collaborative effort, they're seeking readers and writers to help them map out and flesh out the fictional city of Innsmouth and the surrounding haunted New England area. So you'll spot news stories, op-eds, lifestyle articles through metafiction.

Most of my material to date is appearing in their Monster Bytes section, but I imagine I'll be expanding articles into other areas as well. Each writer is taking their own approach to Innsmouth, from what I've seen to date but it's meshing nicely with some good editing and occasionally enough pay to buy a cup of good coffee. Who can ask for anything more?
