Yes, that’s right. The wildly talented Luke Spooner has done it again and rendered a beautiful and creepy piece of cover art for the second book in the Shadows Over Main Street anthology series. Take a gander at this! (Click it to enlarge)

Shadow Street Art

We’ll share the full cover layout when it’s ready but for now you can gaze longingly at this cover art. But that kid on the bike? Yeah, don’t stare too long into his eyes.



(SHADOWS OVER MAIN STREET: An Anthology of Small-Town Lovecraftian Terror, edited by Doug Murano & D. Alexander Ward, coming soon from Hazardous Press)

Well, that milestone we have been working so hard toward is finally here and we can share with all the world the full, titled cover of the book as well as the table of contents. There may be some late additions to the collection of amazing talent we have assembled here and those will be added as they are brought into the fold. Coming soon from Hazardous Press with original cover art by Luke Spooner…




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…
