Announcing Nightmare’s Realm: New Tales of the Weird & Fantastic Edited by S. T. Joshi Featuring New Fiction by Ramsey Campbell, Caitlín R. Kiernan, Simon Strantzas, Gemma Files and Many More:…/november-22nd-nightmares-realm…

Dreams and nightmares often give us glimpses into our true character; they can reveal our deepest anxieties and our most ambitious aspirations. Weird fiction has a rich history with dreamlike stories and nightmares that cross boundaries between the real and imaginary. Even H. P. Lovecraft endured many bizarre dreams from the early days of his youth that he then used as inspiration for some of his fiction and poetry. Now world-renowned weird fiction scholar and editor S. T. Joshi has assembled a new set of nightmares from some of the strongest minds in weird fiction today.

Launching for preorder with early ebook download exclusively on on Tuesday, November 22nd 2016!
