This fall, we’re launching a monster-lit prose anthology called CLASSICS MUTILATED. The centerpiece of the book is Joe R. Lansdale’s “Dread Island” story, which combines Twain’s Jim and Huck, H.P. Lovecraft and even the Brer People. We released this as an exclusive novella at this year’s Comic-Con, and I just saw the first review of Lansdale’s story right here at The Agony Column, which states:
“…that evidence is Joe R. Lansdale in top form and printed in gloriously large type with a tale that beings together Huck Finn, H. P. Lovecraft and Brer Rabbit. Lansdale was writing these kinds of stories long before they appeared on bestseller lists, and his touch here is gritty and weirdly surreal. This is absolutely vintage material, beautifully presented.”
The full anthology is due out in October, and includes my own “Twilight of the Gods” story, which casts Loki in the “Bella” role, along with a very special, twisted love triangle in which he finds himself.
