O Masters of the Black Fires Concealed
Rise o’er the flights of dim mortals sleeping.
Nug and Yeb, Great Dragons black and red, make them
come to the fest to see the Yellow Sign
and for all new, original programming in addition to some of the finest Lovecraftian films.
O First Issue of She Who Is to Come Bearing a Thousand Young
Now lost to thy stillness of discomfort, spark thy Doom-Engines Black and Red
Instill imaginings of three days of movies, music, games, art, authors, vendors, and so much more--
O Dreadful Gods, in thy cold sepulchers deep amongst the black maze of stars,
Heed this appeal, made with arms spread wide in thy acolytes’ wanting, and arise
and tell all the maddened-children it’s like Woodstock for every Unmasked lurker
tainted by the shadowy dreams of Lovecraft……………… .

Laird Barron RAVES in "Locus" for Cassilda!

In Laird Barron’s review column in the new issue of “Locus”, Cassilda’s Song gets a rave. ‘2015 was a good year for horror and weird fic­tion anthologies. Cassilda’s Song is an able dem­onstration of why. It’s also a pleasant, if macabre, signal that the field is flourishing.’ Damien Angelica Walters, Allyson Bird, Chesya Burke, Anya Martin, Maura McHugh, S.P. Miskowski, and  Selena Chambers (‘Gorgeous, intricately layered, and extremely strange, this piece may be the blue ribbon exhibit in an exemplary batch.’), receive major shout outs! !!

‘…this is top shelf stuff.’

‘The table of contents is exceptional not for the fact that it’s composed entirely of women, but rather for the high level of quality.’

I’m OVERmoon to see THE CONTRIBUTORS receive this level of much-deserved praise!

THXXXXXXXXXXxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Laird! !!

Love for Cassilda

" of the most consistently excellent anthologies that I have read in the last couple of years." - Laird Barron

"An anthology dedicated to the King in Yellow. Pulver’s third major tribute anthology in recent days and probably the best. Selena Chambers, Maura McHugh, and S.P. Miskowski set the pace for a sleeper anthology of 2015." - Laird Barron

"This whole book will become a historic hive of Chambers whence these sometimes scarred but stinging Queens of Carcosa arc and soar..." -  Des Lewis
