The first post that went live was at Amazing Stories yesterday. I had intended to have it ready to go a week earlier but an out of town wedding derailed my plans.
Anyway, if you’re a fan of pulp fantasy and horror, this is one you need to put on your radar. There are a number of nice treats (and no tricks) in this novel. It’s about a pair of former police partners. One is now the sheriff and the other is a private investigator. The book opens with the discovery of the body a former classmate of theirs. He’s been ritually murdered. Blind Shadows is a great combination of pulp, horror, and hard boiled adventure.
I’ve been doing a series of posts at Black Gate for about a year now on the Ballantine Adult Fantasy Series. My goal was to have one completed about once a month, but that isn’t quite what has happened. Things have been a little more irregular than that.
This afternoon, my latest went live. It’s over H. P. Lovecraft’s The Doom that Came to Sarnath. This is a collection of stories written as Lovecraft was transitioning from fantasy in the vein of Lord Dunsany to his better known work in the Mythos. Many of these stories are quite short, but overall they’re an interesting read as they show a writer moving from imitation to his own unique voice.
Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to at other venues for Halloween.
