Win a Copy of The Madness of Cthulhu, edited by S.T. Joshi

Thursday, October 9th, 2014 | Posted by John ONeill

The Madness of Cthulhu-smallLast month, we reported on the upcoming release of a major new horror anthology, The Madness of Cthulhu, Volume One, edited by the tireless S.T. Joshi.

That brief article generated a lot of reader interest. No surprise there — this looks like a great book. The Madness of Cthulhu collects fourteen original tales, and two reprints, inspired by Lovecraft’s horror masterpiece At the Mountains of Madness. Arthur C. Clarke, Robert Silverberg, Caitlin R. Kiernan, John Shirley, Harry Turtledove, and others contribute their own takes on the master’s classic tale of a doomed Antarctic expedition that discovers an ancient metropolis built by mysterious alien creatures. This is the first of two volumes, with the second to be released Summer 2015.

We are very pleased to announce that we have two copies to give away to readers of Black Gate, compliments of Titan Books.

How do you enter? Just send an e-mail to with the subject “The Madness of Cthulhu,” and a one-sentence review of your favorite H.P. Lovecraft story (don’t forget to identify the story). That’s it — what could possibly be easier?

Two winners will be drawn at random from all qualifying entries. All entries become the property of New Epoch Press. No purchase necessary. Must be 12 or older. Decisions of the judges (capricious as they may be) are final. Not valid where prohibited by law. Or anywhere postage for a hefty trade paperback is more than, like, 10 bucks.

The Madness of Cthulhu, Volume One was published on Tuesday by Titan Books. It is 304 pages, priced at $15.95 in trade paperback and $9.99 for the digital version. Learn more at the Titan Books website.
