The kind gentlemen over at the Microphones of Madness podcast have composed a two-part review of Dark Regions Press’ new anthology, The Children of Gla’aki, which includes my story, “Squatter’s Rights”.
Part One is here. Part Two is here. I strongly suggest you listen to both, but if you’re only interested in their discussion of “Squatter’s Rights” (spoiler: they liked it), it’s in Part Two.
“Squatter’s Rights” finds Charles St. Cyprian, the Royal Occultist, and his assistant, Ebe Gallowglass, facing off with the monstrous Gla’aki and his followers, on behalf of a friend with poor taste in lakefront properties.
Children of Gla’aki is available as an ebook, trade paperback or deluxe hardcover from Dark Regions Press.

Jonathan Green, editor of Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu has posted the full table of contents for the anthology at his blog. It’s a brilliant lineup, and I’m not just saying that because I’m included in it. There are stories by Graham McNeill, Guy Haley, Ian Edginton and James Lovegrove, among others. Continue reading “That Way Madness Lies”
