So I'm in the midst of moving the Coaterack from another blogging site, here to Blogger.
Please pardon the dust during construction.
In the meantime, here are a few anthologies I'm looking forward to in the near future that you may find interesting as well:
The Spirit of Poe is an anthology of Edgar Allan Poe inspired short stories and poems produced by Literary Landmark Press. Every cent earned from the sale of the anthology will go to the Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum in Baltimore, which recently lost $80,000 worth of funding from the city. The anthology is planned to be released on Halloween of this year.
Dark Tales of Lost Civilizations is what you might expect from the title. As the editor's site says, the anthology will be filled with "dark tales of horror, speculative fiction, and to a lesser degree science fiction, relating to civilizations that are lost, or have been forgotten, or have been rediscovered, or perhaps merely spoken about in great and fearful whispers. Dark Tales of Lost Civilizations is currently set for Spring 2012 publication.
Rainstorm Press is the anthology for the lover of horror, science fiction and all things strange. This looks to be interesting, with an infinite number of possibilities for stories. From the publisher's website: "Who are these human oddities? How do these characters and/or the people in their lives deal with the curse-or the blessing-of their mutations? This anthology will contain stories that explain these human mutations-and their consequences." Mutation Nation is set for release Dec. 1.
