Cthulhu Haiku Received Today: Mythos Madness
Well, that’s the name, CTHULHU HAIKU AND OTHER MYTHOS MADNESS (cf. October 7) to give it in full, and my author’s copy arrived in the mail today. According to Amazon, however, the book has an official publication date of October 2012 for any bibliographers out there. Be that as it may, it is well received here, with my contribution, a piece of short fiction about “The Farmer in the Well” (“Ding, dong, dell! Cthulhu’s in the well!”/ “Who put him in?”/ “Look, stupid. If Cthulhu’s in the well, it’s because Cthulhu wants to be in the well. . . .” But what became of the farmer’s pigs and chickens?). In all, there are 110 pages of haiku and haiku-like and haiku-related poetry as well as short fiction, short rhymed poetry, and who knows what else of short, bite-sized material on, well, Mythos madness. And as for the farmer (and whatever happened to Farmer Brown’s wife?) the answer to that is on page 66.
CTHULHU HAIKU is published by Popcorn Press and edited by Lester Smith; for more information or possible ordering press here.
