Things are really moving forward here at H. Harksen Productions. This post is about the latest book published by me, only a few days ago. Other important updates will follow in the days to come:-)

I am exceedingly proud to announce that the Cthulhu Mythos pulp horror collection by Franklyn Searight, Lovecraftian Covens, can now be purchased via my Lulu Store. (It will, eventually, appear on Amazon as well, but not the first month or two.) Not only is it a superb collection of weird tales but it also features artwork by the amazing artist Allen Koszowski.

Here’s the blurb:

Two Correspondents In A Race To Save the World … and More Thrilling Horrors!

“Herein, you’ll meet a psychotic school teacher, the lineal descendent of Keziah Mason and obedient servant of mindless Azathoth; a group of youngsters attempting to bring about the return of Yog-Sothoth; a famed, bodiless detective who foils the devotees of Shub-Niggarath; Alan Hasrad on his cosmic odyssey and interview with the King in Yellow; a sentient altar awaiting the return of Tsathoqqua; Holmes and Watson investigating a severed tentacle the strangest Indian warrior you’ve ever seen, who has absolutely no sense of humor; Alan and his plan to summon the Warder of Knowledge; a rather nasty ex-con who unhappily meets the followers of Nyarlathotep.

“To round out these wicked and oft times dryly amusing morsels is Menace at Devil Reef, a lengthy novelette in which you’ll share the adventures of two of the most improbable characters ever to scamper through the pages of a Lovecraftian Mythos story.”

Franklyn Searight is the son of Richard F. Searight, Weird Tales author, inventor of the dreadful Eltdown Shards, and correspondent of H. P. Lovecraft.

(End of blurb.)

Now, doesn’t that sounds wonderful? I know, I know, I am biased — in so many ways — but I am also “just” a reader of the Mythos, and these stories honestly delighted me.

If this has caught your curiosity, you can purchase it straight from my  Lulu Store

The next days will see me post on other new, exciting things happening. Incl. a very special offer to Danish residents.

Stay tuned.

 

The Press The Press The Press

Yes, I am working on the next publication, John Mayer’s Hex Code and Others. The illustration you see here is from that book — in fact, the story that features, among others, one of the best horror writers in modern times, Karl Edward Wagner (1945-1994). Unfortunately unfortunate glitches pop up all the time, and I need to get them done before publication. Some of it has been related to the design program I use and some of it related to Lulu.com (the printing press I use, as you know, to reach readers outside Denmark, where I live:-)). And this weekend I was away from the computer to attend a family gathering — which must also be prioritized now and then;-)

And if you’re wondering why none of my English publications can be purchased from Amazon.com and Barnes & Nobles, well, I’ve been wondering the very same thing and have asked the printer why this is. I still await answer from the rest, but I’ve been told that Urban Cthulhu: Nightmare Cities should be available there within a few weeks from now. Until there you can get it right here:-)
