Thank you to everyone who spent some of their hard-earned cash to pick up one of the combo-packs of printed Dateline: Lovecraft newspaper and book. These sold far quicker than we had anticipated, and in the end our modest print run was well-and-truly exhausted a week or so ago. Everyone who ordered one should now have their printed Dateline winging its way towards them … though many folks have already reported it landing upon their doorsteps!
While we are very thankful to *everyone* who bought one of these packs, we do want to give a special shout out to a few folks who are serial supporters of Cthulhu Reborn and who chipped in above-and-beyond to help make this print run even more successful. Those folks are: Adam Alexander, Jeff Vandine, Douglas Bailey, and Perry Tatman. We feel very humbled to have such wonderful folks backing our publishing endeavours!
On a different — but no less exciting — subject, we recently got word that long-time collaborator and friend of Cthulhu Reborn, Geoff Gillan, has taken the plunge and created a publishing imprint for his genre fiction. Some hard-core Call of Cthulhu fans may already know that Geoff (in addition to being the driving force behind Horror on the Orient Express) has already had novel or two published in dead-tree format by major publishers. Not content with that, he has been madly scribbling away penning novels and short stories … and now, for the first time these will be available in eBook form.
Formats: PDF, EPUB, MOBI
An advantage of being Geoff’s collaborator on Convicts & Cthulhu is that I’ve been able to get a sneak peek at some of these … in particular the first series of novels and stories, the “Man From Z.O.M.B.I.E.” series. If Cold War spy fiction tickles your fancy but you always wished for a little supernatural spice to season your Fleming or similar, these are definitely worth checking out. Similarly if you’re a zombie buff whose interested in unusual and innovative (not to mentioned nuanced) uses of the walking dead, maybe they might be your thing also.
