Midnight Shambler # 2 Cover and Contents























Here’s a blog post I drafted ages ago and never got around to posting:

Midnight Shambler #2 was a Special Lovecraftian Issue published May, 1988. It contained:

“Gibberings from the editor” by David Barker

“Dust to Dust” by W. H. Pugmire

“The Weighing of the Soul”, “The Gate Between the Stars” and “Power Failure” by Ann K. Schwader

“Wine In Slimy Bottles” by Bobby G. Warner

“The Screaming Stones” by Ralph E. Vaughan

“The Darkest Morning Revisited” by Raymond Schmitz III

“Moles” by Lisa Lepovetsky

“Before the Dawn” by Gary Lovisi

“The Scrawling Chaos” (Letters), and

“Alien Concept” by Albert J. Manachino.

Plus art by Richard Sardinha, Darrell Tutchton, Doni A. Lazenby, David Barker, Raymond Schmidz III, Carole Wellen, and Kevin D. Duncan.  The issue hasn’t been reprinted although there may have been two issues of the original edition, based on the fact that I have one with a tan cover and another with a pink cover.


About David Barker

David Barker is the author of two works of weird horror fiction written in collaboration with W. H. Pugmire: The Revenant of Rebecca Pascal and In the Gulfs of Dream & Other Lovecraftian Tales (both books were published by the now defunct Dark Renaissance Books, but copies are still available from Dark Regions Press.) Barker and Pugmire also collaborated on a Lovecraftian horror novel, Witches In Dreamland, which will be published by Hippocampus Press, possibly in late 2017. Recently, his stories and poems have appeared in Fungi, Cyaegha, Spectral Realms, The Art Mephitic, The Audient Void, The Indiscriminate Mixture and on Shoggoth.net. He has a short story in the weird fiction anthology, Nightmare's Realm, edited by S. T. Joshi and published in 2017 by Dark Regions Press. He also has published several works of horror and bizarro fiction as Kindle ebooks, including the bizarro zombie novel Dead Guys in Packards. Together with Jordan Hofer, David Barker has written two nonfiction books about UFOs and alien abduction: Little Gray Bastards (published in 2016 by Schiffer Publishing) and Unidentifiable Flying Objects (due in Fall 2017 from Schiffer.)
