in paperback

Black Wings of Cthulhu 5, ye trade pb edition of S. T. Joshi's Black Wings V, is now available from Titan Books for $14.95. This is my all-time favourite series of Lovecraftian/Cthulhu Mythos fiction and one that I am extraordinarily proud to be involv'd with. It's fascinating to see how several different writers, many of whom are not associated with ye writing of weird fiction inspr'd by H. P. Lovecraft, approach this eldritch genre. The paperback series changes the title of the books because Titan seem to have a theory that the word "Cthulhu" helps to move volumes out of ye bookstores and Amazon vaults. I have no idea if this is actually so, & the use of the name in the title is actually an error--because the point of this series is that these are not your typical Cthulhu Mythos stories (and this is emphasized in the sub-title: Twenty New Tales of Lovecraftian Horror).
