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

* * *

For a final and fitting addition to the anthology, we give you Josh Malerman, who will be contributing his nasty little story, “A Fiddlehead Party on Carpenter’s Farm.” You may recognize him as the lead singer of the The High Strung or possibly as the author of the acclaimed novel, Bird Box.


We’re happy as hell to have Josh join us in the shadows. Bid him a warm welcome!
