S. T. Joshi's planned reprint anthology of his favorite Mythos tales, Spawn of the Green Abyss, will now be published by Centipede Press, probably in the summer or fall of 2012. Centipede Press will publish both a trade edition and a signed limited edition. Actually, although most of ye stories are reprints, the anthology will include some new tales that will see their first publication in this book. Ye Nameless Contents Be:
"Spawn of the Green Abyss," by C. Hall Thompson
"The Deep Ones," by James Wade
"The Franklyn Papers," by Ramsey Campbell
"Where Yidhra Walks," by Walter C. DeBll, Jr.
"Black Man with a Horn," by T. E. D. Klein
"Nethescurial," by Thomas Ligotti
"Black Brat of Dunwich," by Stanley C. Sargent
"The Phantom of Beguilement," by ye Queen of Eldritch Horror
"...Hungry...Rats," by Joseph S. Pulver, Sr. (original to this edition)
"Virgin's Island," by Donald Tyson (original to this edition)
"In the Shadow of Swords," by Cody Goodfellow (original to this edition)
And, next year will see S. T.'s anthology of all-new original Lovecraftian tales, Black Wings II.
It will be interesting to see if this new trend of Mythos anthologies, all of which seem to have the name "Cthulhu" somewhere in their titles, will continue. Next month we have New Cthulhu: The Recent Weird from Prime Books, a reprint anthology with a very solid Contents. I hope these books continue to come forth, especially the reprint volumes--then I can be in new books but still be lazy and not write new yarns.
