H. P. Lovecraft pioneered a fusion of terror and science fiction themes, and is widely credited as having invented the sub-genre of ‘cosmic horror’. While America’s New England was the focus and setting for many of Lovecraft’s tales, the Southern Hemisphere held a fascination for him. Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica were featured locations in his Mythosian novellas.

In tribute to this, presented here is an assortment of the finest Australian dark fiction, bringing you a second volume of Lovecraftian stories of wonder and dread. Featured are new tales by ROBERT HOOD, LEE MURRAY, KIRSTYN McDERMOTT and SILVIA BROWN.

Cthulhu Deep Down Under Volume 2 takes us back below the equator, into the bizarre and headlong towards horror. From mist-shrouded peaks and canyons of Melanesian islands, through rainforests and scorching deserts of the island continent of Terra Australis, and across the Tasman Sea to the inhospitable hinterlands of New Zealand.

Tales of terror by:
Kirstyn McDermott
Robert Hood
Lee Murray
Jason Nahrung
Bill Congreve
J Scherpenhuizen
Silvia Brown
T.S.P. Sweeney
Geoff Brown
David Kuraria

Also an introduction by Mythos fiction guru and horror author, Peter Rawlik.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the Australian release of Cthulhu Deep Down Under Volume 1, edited by Steve Proposch, Christopher Sequiera, and Bryce Stevens. It is the third title under our ‘Dark Phases’ title series, and the first of three volumes of Australian Lovecraftian short fiction.

The cover artwork and design is by Steve Santiago, no stranger to Mythos art, and who will also be doing the honours in Vols 2 and 3, which will be published in 2018 and 2019 respectively. We also have two fine internal pieces by Sarah Ellerton and the late, and great, Lindsay C. Walker (who we have dedicated this anthology to).

The Table of Contents is as follows:

Introduction by Ramsey Campbell
A Pearl Beyond Price by Janeen Webb
Haunting Matilda by Dmetri Kakmi
Wife to Mr Lovecraft by Lucy Sussex
Darkness Beyond by Jason Franks
The Diesel Pool by Kaaron Warren

The Return Of… by Christopher Sequeira
The Elder Things by B. Michael Radburn

We are just as excited to publish other great Australian writers in our later volumes.

Cthulhu Deep Down Under Volume 1 should be available from all fine bricks and mortar, and online, bookstores – ask for it if they haven’t got it on their shelves. The anthology will be released in North America on the 1st December this year.

Stay tuned for news about the formal book launch early next year, which will be in Melbourne, where many of its authors reside.
