Some of the stuff I’ve been up to (at least what I can remember right this minute . . .) --
Work continues on the King in Yellow and Ligotti tribute anthologies (A Season in Carcosa and The Grimscribe’s Puppets) I’m editing for Miskatonic River Press (both will be released this year – KIY summer, Ligotti, this fall). The KIY tome is about done (looks like 2 weeks and it goes to the publisher). I’m still tinkering away on my intro for this and awaiting what I believe will be a stunning sub and addition . . .

I have a new Lovecraftian tale coming in the May issue of the “Lovecraft eZine”.
My new collection Portraits of Ruin (w/ an introduction by Matt Cardin) arrives from Hippocampus Press in April.
us posit that Bukowski is the sun. Or Brautigan, Burroughs and the Beats—a solar Coney Island of the Mind where Timothy Leary’s dead and dead Cthulhu waits and sings the live long daydream believer. Then Joe Pulver’s Portraits of Ruin would be the burst of planets, Big Bang-Bang, Marquee Moons hanging on for what they got, scream of consciousness—in Outer Space no one can hear it . . . except Coffin Joe, Monster Mash Potato that big ol’ Portraits of Ruin—Mars needs it, you need it, so just open the lid and shake your fist—then say: “They kill horses, horses, horses, horses.” Thank you. Come again?—Thomas Ligotti
Here's a rave for PoR
And Matt Cardin chimes in here
I have a new tale coming in Trent Zelazny’s upcoming anthology, A Splintered Mind.
A few new things (3 as I recall) will be appearing in the next issue of “Patricide”.
Spectral Press’ new line of Lovecraftian CD’s will premiere this May. My work will appear on this “Music & Mythos” project w/ HPL’s! !!
The wonderful folks at “STRANGE AEONS” magazine will be offering a very-limited chapbook of “my love letter tale to the HPL Film Festival” at the fest this May in Portland. This is a new tale written just for the fest. The cover and illos will be by my pal, Nick Gucker! I love Nicky work so saying I’m delighted is a vast understatement! !! A shorter, variant version will appear in Portraits of Ruin. This will be the only appearance of this version ever! !!
Finished and submitted my "intro"/love letter to Michael Cisco’s brilliant, Secret Hours, which will be part of his upcoming [and wonderous!] boxed-omnibus from Centipede Press.
I am working on a number of submissions for various invites, and a “few” other INTERESTING things as well . . .
I'll be updating the blog w/ more "reviews" of my stuff soon................. .
