[Happy, ~still shocked~ humbled!! !, full of YIPPIE~ !!] It's official now~ ~~
signed (and mailed) the contracts for S.T. Joshi’s A Mountain Walked: Great Tales of the
Cthulhu Mythos, coming next year from Centipede Press. This is the anthology [of
S. T. Joshi's "favorite" Cthulhu Mythos tales] that was called, The
Spawn of the Green Abyss. It
will contain my new tale “…Hungry …Rats”.
I still remember sending my tale to S.T. as a possible sub for "Weird Fiction Review" (Centipede Press) and him replying, "No, I want this for my upcoming Best of the Cthulhu Mythos anthology."
There will be a signed/limited edition hardcover. More details as I can! !!
I've posted the ToC here on my blog before, but................... [well, you'll understand I get a charge out of seeing my name with these writers ~ LIGOTTI! !! KLEIN!!!!!!!!! CAMPBELL! !! WOW! !! What planet is this? ??]. I'm also over the moon to see my friends, Hopfrog [get well soon old friend!! !], ST.an, and Cody in this tome! !!
