Help! I’ve become infected by the Atomic Sea!

Okay, here I am, fully transformed . . .

This is to kick off the Monthly Mutation, where I will ask readers to create pictures of themselves as people infected by the Atomic Sea — fish-people, crab-people, octopus-people, whatever. They can be created using make up, Photoshop, paint on canvas, anything, and they can be simple or fancy.

I was going to give the winner (picked by me, at least for now) an Atomic Sea T-shirt and a signed copy of the first print book, but I think I’m going to change that. I really want this to be successful, and to do that I need tor really encourage everyone to send in their best stuff, so I’m going to offer $100 Amazon Gift Card to whoever wins . . . every month!

I was helped along in my transformation by the wonderful make-up artist Kat Mitchell of Austin, Texas.

Beware the Shoggoths! H. P. Lovecraft would be proud

Beware the Shoggoths! H. P. Lovecraft would be proud

Check this out, all fans of H. P. Lovecraft. Robert DeFrank has written a wonderful story told in high Lovecraftian style, a mode many have attempted and most have failed at. Robert captures that style effortlessly and transports you into a terrifically creepy story — I won’t mention any details for fear of spoilers, although the fact that it’s on shoggoth.net should give you a hint. I buy anthologies all the time that promise Lovecraftian thrills, but very few of the stories contained in them actually deliver. This one does, and I heartily recommend it. I hope Robert has some more like this in him, because if he does I will be a happy man. If not, though, thank you, Robert, for “The Mythos Path”.

You can find the story HERE.
