Historical Lovecraft anthology coming soon

An all-new horror short story of mine will be appearing in the upcoming anthology, Historical Lovecraft. The anthology will be available in print and as an e-book in 2011, and is produced and edited by the eldritch duo of Silvia Moreno-Garcia and Paula R. Stiles, who've been behind the Innsmouth Free Press. The cover artwork is by Spanish illustrator Paco Rico Torres.

The stories cover a lot of ground, particularly in nations and civilizations that normally haven't been covered by people writing within the Cthulhu mythos. Naturally, I take a swing with a story set in Laos in the 1890s and the search for a forgotten temple of ancient beings and mysterious secrets. 

Recently for the Innsmouth Free Press I also covered short stories on mysterious lost Twain  papers being debated by literary scholars in Innsmouth, a convention about cryptogastronomy, the Innsmouth fashion scene and a dog in a nursing home that knows when people die, so be sure to check those out, or even better, submit your own stories to them!

You can also still find my short horror story, "A Model Apartment" in their fourth issue, regarding a young Hmong artist who goes to the famous city of Arkham to study art. It combines many of the classic themes of Lovecraft as well as Southeast Asian mythology in a modern urban setting.
