Dead But Dreaming 2 available for pre-order from Miskatonic River Press

The day draws nigh, as we all draw in our last, untroubled breath.

As recently announced by Miskatonic River Press President and Managing Editor Tom Lynch, Dead But Dreaming 2 (edited by MRP's esteemed squid wrangler Kevin Ross,), the widely anticipated follow-up to the critically hailed Dead But Dreaming (edited by Ross, in collaboration with MRP founder and eternal spirit guide Keith "Doc" Herber),  is now available for pre-order at the Miskatonic River Press electronic mothership.

From the site:

Nowhere to Hide...

No one is safe. You aren't safe. Ancient and inimical, the alien influences of the Cthulhu Mythos are all around us. In our cities, our nightclubs, our backyards, and heading for our front porches right now. From the dreaming city of Kingsport, Massachusetts, to the lonely northern woods and the barren western deserts. The urban sprawl and the distant lake. The depths of the Pacific and the freezing ruin of a starless Earth. They are here, destroying us, devouring us, shattering our minds with the one truth we cannot bear to admit: that no matter what we do we cannot escape the fact that, deep down, we are very much like them.

Dead But Dreaming 2 is the second volume of the critically-acclaimed anthology series from Miskatonic River Press. Herein are 22 tales of Lovecraftian horror from the modern masters of Cthulhu Mythos fiction: Scott David Aniolowski, David Annandale, Donald R. Burleson, Cody Goodfellow, John Goodrich, T.E. Grau, Rick Hautala, Walt Jarvis, Erik T. Johnson, William Meikle, Will Murray, Daniel W. Powell, Wilum Pugmire, Joseph S. Pulver Sr, Pete Rawlik, Kevin Ross, Brian Sammons, Darrell Schweitzer, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Michael Tice, and Don Webb.

Hey, I'm the dude behind "the barren western deserts"!  Ka-KAW!  
In other recent MRP news, let's all raise our respective glasses in congratulations to Scott David Aniolowski, who is Miskatonic River Press' new Vice President in Charge of Fiction; and longtime MRP RPG maven Oscar Rios, who has been newly dubbed Vice President in Charge of Gaming.  

Cheers, fellas.

Oh, and pre-order Dead But Dreaming 2, as I have a feeling - based on a lot of buzz - that the first printing of this sucker is going to sell out quickly.


  1. Wow, Pulver and Pugmire alone are worth the cost of this one.

  2. Amen, Chris.

    It's an embarrassment of riches.

  3. Don't forget Will Murray, Cody Goodfellow, David Annandale, and *two* from Darrell Schweitzer...and then there's that Grau character. ;-)

  4. Indeed, Tom. Those are the riches. I'm the embarrassment. :)
