Interview with Author David Hambling

I had the opportunity to sit down (albeit digitally, of course) with Mythos writer and generally great guy, David Hambling today. Here is the wonderful interview, and sneak peek to future happenings, with that great man.

Enjoy.

Review: OffWorld Designs Apparel

While I’m not normally politically engaged (politics are like assholes…no…wait…politics are filled with assholes, that’s it…), I found myself suddenly inclined to get drunk, read a good book, and broadcast my love for the newly announced candidate.

Cthulhu believes in equal liberties for all...as long as liberties means destruction and death.

NaNoWriMo Prep!

Are you getting ready for NaNoWriMo?

Don’t know what it is? Maybe you should. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, AKA November! A lot of the staff at Shoggoth.net are authors, and some of us partake in this annual word party.

The goal? 50,000 words in a month.

Interested? Sign up an NaNoWriMo.org and then comment in the comments of our site with your NaNoWriMo.com page link. We’d love to friend you and follow your progress.

November is going to be a fun month for NaNoWriMo members here at Shoggoth.net. We’re planning a few surprises as well as giving you regular updates as to our own progress.

That being said, how do you get 50,000 words in 1 month? It isn’t easy, but Shoggoth.net has built a little calendar that you can make as your wallpaper on your computer desktop to help keep you on track with your word count.

Advertise on Shoggoth.net!

download

A lot of the people that we run into, either in person, or through the blog, are creators in some way or another. That, combined with the niche that our blog studiously rests within, led us to adopt a new idea:
We’re going to offer up an advertisement program.
If you’ve noticed in the sidebars, we have examples of some of the advertisement options that we’re offering. Anyone that’s a creator, or has a product that’s Mythos or Weird Horror specific (You know…fits our website), is more than welcome to request a quote for a banner ad, Social Media ads, or a blog post advertising your creation.
Then you’ll be adding the visibility of every Shoggoth.net subscriber to your product’s potential.
That’s kinda awesome!
Interested? Email submissions@shoggoth.net and request a quote. We’ll send you an email with your options and pricing.
Disclaimer: We have the right to refuse any ad placements that we deem don’t fit the concept of our site or might in some other way be just too offensive or weird. We’re pretty open-minded people, but even we have limits.

Book Review: Book of the Dead, by Greig Beck

Book of the Dead by Greig Beck

Book of the Dead by Greig Beck.

For years, my colleague and overseas pal, David Hambling, has been trying to encourage me to write a Lovecraftian story that has at least some part of the setting in the area that I’m living in. I’ve been hesitant, but after reading Book of the Dead by Greig Beck, I’ve learned that setting doesn’t matter, it’s the story that drives a novel.

5 Great Movies That Would Be Even Better If Lovecraft Had Written Them

Let’s be fair, there have been a lot of movies whose fame can be traced back to the great Mr. Lovecraft: The Thing, Pacific Rim, Alien, Pans Labyrinth, and Event Horizon to name a few of the obvious ones.

But even the great works could be greater, and I think that adding Lovecraft is the answer for success!

The way I see it, there isn’t enough Lovecraftian prose weaved into our favorite stories. That’s when I asked myself which movies probably could have benefited from a touch by the scribe himself.

Introducing Matthew Davenport!

This is a Picture of a fair skinned male wearing glasses with a well manicured beard. His facial expression is one of bemused confusion.

Well, this is awkward. An introductory post on Shoggoth.net.

Dang it! I mean exciting.

It would only be awkward if I were a Mi-Go, hiding in the flesh of Matthew Davenport, a new editor at Shoggoth.net.

And I’m not. That’d be silly.

Since I’m obviously not an alien being that travels through time and space choosing to currently be wearing a Matt-Suit, I’d love to tell you a little bit about him … err, me! Continue reading »
