Unfortunately, I have to report some very sad news. Lovecraft eZine has folded after just five issues due to the editor's health problems. This is a loss to the entire SF/Horror community, both readers and writers.

"When they had their backs to him he could see the symmetrical arrangement of dark spots which marked their wings in a pattern resembling a human face. A very sad face, very distinct."@Daily Science Fiction: "The Wishwriter's Wife" by Ian McHugh. Fantasy.
"In the days when fairies were still to be found in the world, and wishes could come true, there lived a wishwriter and his wife. The wishwriter was a clever man, but plain, and born with a twisted back that made him stoop."@Electric Velocipede: "The Chiaroscurist" by Hal Duncan.

"At that moment, with gun in hand, he sees a rather unusual want ad. The only caveat? Whoever responds to this ad must be able to bring their own weapons. Well, at least Dan can fill that part of the ad, right?"@PodCastle: "Portage" by An Owomoyela, read by Elizabeth Green Musselman. Fantasy.
"When it came time to carry her father’s soul down from the mountain, she had nothing to carry it in. The bowl her mother had carved from heirloom ivory, fit together like a puzzle mosaic and watertight without needing glue, had been shattered just that morning in an argument with the father’s retainer."

There may be a second post tonight, but no promises - I'm often to fatigued after work to even consider it.
