NEW graduate-level fiction workshops open for enrollment!

Typewriter typing the words "What's your story?"

Hello, all! I wanted to let you know that my in-person and videoconferencing fiction workshops are starting up again in October. This is a safe and productive writing and critiquing environment where tales of the macabre and even Lovecraftian are most welcome (as are all other flavors of fiction).

“Sean Hoade’s Fiction Time Workshop has been an educational and rewarding experience. Sean’s expertise at both writing and workshop facilitation, together with superb classmates, have made it a treasure. Enthusiastically recommended.” — Sean I., Salt Lake City

This is an Iowa-Writer’s-Workshop-style graduate-level fiction workshop. It is being held in Las Vegas but anyone from anywhere can take part through live videoconferencing by Google Hangouts. The videoconferencing has turned out to be a HUGE hit with writers from across the country.

R.

A short but very effective epistolary mood piece today. Sip it slowly.

Excerpts from a small diary:

Entry 1

I cannot control this any longer. R. says to look at his navel. He says that there is an eye. And I look and I see there is. It even blinks.

Entry 2

For what he lacks, he has acquired an extra thing.

Entry 3

The eye astonishes me when I look at it. It follows me when I move. I ask R. if he does this. He says no, that it moves of its own volition. I don’t like this. R. is terribly frightened. When I run my hand down his belly I can feel another protuberance. I think a nose is coming also. The eye looks at me. I don’t like it. It has an evil look to it. There is an intelligence behind it, but I don’t think it is of man…nor of beast.

Island of Ignorance: the Third Cthulhu Companion

Image is of a book cover. The illustration is a 1920's era female pouring over old occult manuscripts with a bottle of wine, it's accompanying glass and a pistol. Several tentacles ending in eyes and mouths descend from the library shelves behind her.

Following in the footsteps of the Chaosium classics, The Cthulhu Companion—Ghastly Adventures and Eldritch Lore and Fragments of Fear—The Second Cthulhu Companion, Golden Goblin Press is proud to present Island of Ignorance—The Third Cthulhu Companion, a collection of articles and scenarios for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game.

Island of Ignorance: the Third Cthulhu Companion is another gem from the good folks at Golden Goblin Press. This supplement is for keepers whose players demand more. This is the first supplement to carry trigger warnings. How’s that for pushing the horror envelope? You have been warned. It is far more a collection of scenarios. In the style that we have come to expect from Golden Goblin, this book starts with a collection of eight articles. Each of which is an excellent keeper resource. Continue reading »

Not the End of the World

David Hambling is the author of two Mythos novellas, “The Elder Ice” and “Broken Meats” (available on Amazon), and a new collection from PS Publishing “The Dulwich Horror and others.”

“The time would be easy to know, for then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones… the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom.”
HP Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu

I visited Josh a week after his world ended, bringing him a takeaway curry and six bottles of Cobra beer.

Josh had not been diagnosed with cancer. He had not suffered a stroke, or any of the other medical emergencies that set phones ringing at three in the morning. His wife was safe and healthy, not killed in a car crash. When I say his world ended, that’s exactly what I mean.

Josh’s Armageddon ran to a timetable, and we had been through the countdown. It had started months before, when Josh began sending me emails about the coming apocalypse, cut-and-pasted web collations studded with PHRASES IN UPPER CASE about aliens and quantum physics. Continue reading »
