Letters to Arkham available for pre-order

From PS Publishing, this is a collection of the letters between Ramsey Campbell and August Derleth, edited by S.T. Joshi:

In the course of their intense correspondence, the two writers debated a wide variety of topics—Lovecraft, Arkham House, weird fiction, and in particular the many films that both of them enjoyed. Derleth helped Campbell to obtain works by Henry Miller and others that were banned in England, and the two also discussed delicate issues of romance, marriage, and sexuality. In this lively exchange of letters, we see Derleth becoming a valued mentor to the young Campbell, who would go on to become a towering figure in weird fiction.

Lovecraft-inspired wedding shoot

And now for something a bit different, at the Broke-Ass Bride:

The makeup and hair styling evoked a Victorian/Tim Burton-esque feel while the flowers took on a look of blood and brains and tentacles. The amazing skull and tentacle cake featured eldritch designs imprinted on its sides. And the invitation suite incorporated actual names and addresses from Lovecraft’s life as well as a “handwritten” feel.

Fantasy Flight and the Cthulhu Mythos

Among the many different publishers that have released Cthulhu Mythos inspired tabletop games, one publishing company stands out from the rest, Fantasy Flight. Since the Cthulhu Mythos accidental inception in the early 1900’s by Lovecraft and his literature correspondents, the universe has been expanded upon by many different media artists. Fantasy Flight has managed to add to the Mythos by establishing their own characters into the universe. Even though Arkham Horror, Eldritch Horror, Call of Cthulhu Card Game, Elder Sign, and Mansions of Madness are all tied together by familiar faces and art style, they all play very differently from one another.
