Shadows Over Main Street – Official Cover and Table of Contents

I am beyond excited to be able to announce the details of this project on which I have been working with fellow writer and editor, Doug Murano. We’ve been “vaguebooking” about it for a while but today, as I’m in attendance at Scares That Care weekend in Williamsburg, VA, here is the official announcement.

Shadows Over Main Street is an anthology of Lovecraftian fiction. Edited by Doug and myself and slated to be published by Hazardous Press. Here is the cover, featuring artwork by Luke Spooner and jacket copy.



What happens when idyllic small-towns, and the simple folk who inhabit them, collide with inexplicable evil borne of a vast and uncaring cosmos? Imagine a series of stories set in a golden era of American life, where worldly troubles are regarded from a distance, if at all.

Hear the buzz of playing cards clipped in children’s spokes echo down quiet lanes. Smell the faint aroma of rich tobacco smoke from an old man’s pipe on a shady boulevard. Listen to the gossip of small towns where everyone knows everyone’s business.

Or do they?

Sometimes, deadly secrets lurk out in the barn. Sometimes, unimaginable evil awaits us in the root cellar. Sometimes, we fall under the sway of the Shadows Over Main Street.

Come inside and sit for a spell…
