Lovecraftian fairy tale anthology out now from Crystal Lake
Twice Upon an Apocalypse is a Lovecraftian fairy tale collection, hot off the press from Crystal Lake Publishing. Edited by Rachel Kenley and Scott T Goudsward, the anthology features such classic fairy tales as ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’, ‘The Little Mermaid’ and more, all brought into the crushingly brutal reality of the Lovecraftian universe. Reviews for the collection so far have been overwhelmingly positive. You can find out more about it at Crystal Lake’s Facebook page, here. Or, if you need a copy right away, you can pick one up from Amazon, here.

Details on the fundraising campaign, including your chance to buy in and obtain a variety of perks, can be found here.
