Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.295: Monstrous Aftermath

Someone who has been absent from these pages for far too long is Wilum H. Pugmire - Lovecraftian prose-poet extraordinaire. Today I present Pugmire's Monstrous Aftermath: Stories in the Lovecraftian Tradition, which also contains one of my favourite of his pieces: Some Unknown Gulf of Night - a series of prose vignettes based on Lovecraft's Fungi from Yuggoth sonnet cycle. Nice.


  1. Thank ye, Justin. I believe that MONSTROUS AFTERMATH is one of my better collections, in that it collects those things that are fairly recent and thus shew how my writing has improved over time. My very best book will be publish'd late next year, AN ECSTASY OF FEAR AND OTHERS; but it will be an expensive Centipede Press hardcover, and not everyone will be able to afford it. I am now trying to write a collection of Victorian Mythos fiction, but it is proving far more difficult than I thought--mostly because when I think of ye Victorian era, I think of England, and moft of ye tales in the new book are to be set in America.

  2. Not only can this girl write but she seems like a wonderful person.
