Cthulhu Unbound

An upcoming anthology from our friends at Permuted Press (http://www.permutedpress.com). It will be published in two volumes, the first of which includes a tale by me. Here's the table of contents for that volume, with synopses where avaialble.

1) "Noir-lathotep" by Linda Donahue
Nyarlathotep, the Outer God of 1000 aspects, known as the Crawling Chaos, the Black Man, or sometimes just Devil. Woken from his slumbers in the chaotic ether surrounding Azathoth, the Idiot God, Nyarlathotep feels the death of one of his aspects. In Film Noir style, complete with black & white setting, he solves his own murder. . . .

2) "The Invasion Out of Time" by Trent Roman
In the distant future, fighter pilots wage an unceassing battle against ancient, powerful alien creatures for the fate of planet. Now, a risky stratagem could finally see the elder things defeated... or spell disaster for humanity's defendors.

3) "James and the Dark Grimoire" by Kevin Lauderdale
Think H.P. Lovecraft by way of P.G. Wodehouse. Young man-about-town Reggie Brubaker is spending the weekend at a country estate when his aunt dragoons him into stealing a rare and ancient book. . . It's up to his trusty valet James to save the day.

4) "Hellstone and Brimfire" by John Goodman

5) "Star Crossed" by Bennet Reilly
Shub-Niggurath, Outer Goddess and estranged wife of the Not-to-be-Named-One, is feeling her biological clock starting to tick. After eons of waiting the stars are finally right for her and Hastur to try to work out their marital troubles. Can these two former lovers reignite the flames of their lost love, or will Shub-Niggurath be forever unfulfilled in her role as the Dark Mother?

6) "The Covenant" by Kim Paffenroth
Presented here for the first time is a lost chapter of Herman Melville's classic novel Moby-Dick. The piece offers shocking substantiation of Melville's claim that he had "written a wicked book."

7) "The Hindenburg Manifesto" by Lee Clark Zumpe

8) "In Our Darkest Hour" by Steven Graham

9) "Blood Bags and Tentacles" by DL Snell
Strange creatures have overrun Earth, and in Portland, Oregon, the survivors have holed up in a hotel. When Shaun Adams banishes himself, his brother Ryan must brave Portland's Shanghai Tunnels to bring him back. But something prowls the underground passageways, something with tentacles, and now Shaun's life isn't the only one at stake.

10) "Bubba Cthulhu's Last Stand" by Lisa Hilton
A bitter unicorn must face his own darkness in order to defeat the beer-swilling Bubba Cthulhu and his clan.

11) "Turf" by Richard D. Moore

12) "The Menagerie" by Ben Thomas

13) "The Patriot" by John Goodrich

14) "The Shadow over Las Vegas" by John Kiel Alexander
A savage journey into the heart of Lovecraftian terror; a drug-fueled, gonzo journalistic joyride into the blackened soul of Las Vegas....

15) "Locked Room" by CJ Henderson
Master sorcerer Anton Zarnak goes into his office, locking the door behind himself. Later, when his servant knocks to announce dinner, he finds his master has vanished. Can two ordinary cops puzzle out what happened? In a room where any object can be a clue or a magical timebomb, NYPD lieutenant Mark Thorner and New Orleans Inspector of Police John Raymond Legrasse must solve the disappearance of a wizard before time runs out on a clock they don't even know is ticking.
