Five years ago when my wife shamed me into picking up my pen again, one of the first things I started writing was a mash up novel of Lovecraftian characters, and I really wanted Herbert West to be part of that team. Unfortunately, I'm a stickler for established chronologies, and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't tell the story I wanted to tell with West in it.Enter Dr. Stuart Hartwell.He was the perfect solution, he had all of West's skills, but his timeline was mine to play with. But, I didn't know who he was, or what motivated him. So I wrote a story about him, and another, and then another. Quickly the mash up novel was set aside and all my time was spent focused on Hartwell. Those stories became the novel Reanimators.Now, just a year later that mash up novel I wanted to work on. The one that was called at various times The League of Lovecraftian Gentlemen, The Miskatonic Club, The Miskatonic Men's Aide Society, The Arkham Oddfellowes - well that became The Weird Company and that hits the streets in September.Hartwell is back, but this time he's not alone, he and his cohort have been recruited by . . . Well you'll just have to read the book now won't you.This is the book I wanted to write from the start, and if you liked Reanimators, you will adore The Weird Company.

He is standing beside a 19th century-garbed evil elf-child and what appears to be a sack full of dead children. Despite this cover, the collection features holidays throughout the year, ...

Quality of the stories in this anthology varies. Some fall flat due to too much unexplained, a thing that needs to be delicately balanced in stories like these. Some nice premises are ruined by trying too hard or simply bad writing. Some are wonderful. As far as the theme goes, don't be misled by ...
