Read full description of the books The Strange Dark One:With The Strange Dark One, W. H. Pugmire collects all of his best weird fiction concerning H. P. Lovecraft's dark god, Nyarlathotep. This avatar of the Great Old Ones is Lovecraft's most enigmatic creation, a being of many masks and multitudinous personae. Often called The Crawling Chaos, Nyarlathotep heralds the end of mortal time, and serves as avatar of Azathoth, the Idiot Chaos who will blew earth's dust away. Many writers have been enchanted by this dark being, in particular Robert Bloch, the man who, through correspondence, inspired Wilum Pugmire to try his hand at Lovecraftian fiction. This new book is a testimonial of Nyarlathotep's hold on Pugmire's withered brain, and these tales serve as aspects of a haunted mind. Along with stories that have not been reprinted since their initial magazine appearances, The Strange Dark One includes "To See Beyond," a sequel-of-sorts to Robert Bloch's groovy tale, "The Cheaters;" and the book's title story is a 14,000 word novelette set in Pugmire's Sesqua Valley. The Strange Dark One is a collection of Lovecraftian fiction by W. H. Pugmire. Each tale is beautifully illustrated by the remarkable Jeffrey Thomas, who is himself one of today's finest horror authors.
Read information about the authorWilum lives in Seattle, WA and writes Cthulhu Mythos fiction full-time, and has many books forthcoming. He is the self-proclaimed "Queen of Eldritch Horror," and has been writing Lovecraftian weird fiction since the early 1970s.
Writing weird fiction is his life, but congestive heart failure has slowed his writing. He considers his finest books to be "Some Unknown Gulf of Night" (Arcane Wisdom Press 2011), "Uncommon Places" (Hippocampus Press 2012) and "The Tangled Muse" (Centipede Press 2011).
Lovecraft scholar and biographer S. T. Joshi has described Pugmire as "the prose-poet of the horror/fantasy field; he may be the best prose-poet we have" and "perhaps the leading Lovecraftian author writing today."
