Prophecies and Dooms Preview Out

Posted in Uncategorized on May 25, 2018 by marksamuels

Prophecies small coverOver on Patreon I have today made available, to subscribers, a preview PDF of PROPHECIES AND DOOMS, a collection of essays on the Weird. The contents are as follows:

THE ROOT OF EVIL: HEINZ HANNS EWERS AND ALRAUNE

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968)

A GREAT LIFE SPOILT: WILDE, DOUGLAS AND MACHEN

THE IMMORTAL RENOWN OF EDGAR A. POE

LITTLE SUNSHINE: THE ORIGINS OF H.P. LOVECRAFT

IN SEARCH OF PAN: ALGERNON BLACKWOOD

WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD: SOME REFLECTIONS ON ‘DR. STIGGINS’ AND ARTHUR MACHEN

‘IT’S THE CONSPIRACY, STUPID’: THOMAS LIGOTTI’S ANTI-GOSPEL

In due course the book will appear in paperback and be made available for sale to the general public, but probably not for a few months, since I am busy with a number of other important projects demanding my immediate attention.

Prophecies And Dooms

I will get this collection of essays up on my Patreon site as an original, preview PDF e-book by the end of the month. It will consist of around 100 pages of uncollected essays on Machen, Blackwood, Lovecraft and Ligotti etc.

Available right now, on the same platform, is an original piece of weird fiction called “Posterity”. This brilliantly pungent piece of anti-post-modernism has met with more absolute indifference than I thought possible.

And so it goes.
