01Publishing's mythos-inspired anthology series is back!

The WHISPERS FROM THE ABYSS anthology series returns to haunt bookshelves with more Lovecraft-inspired fiction created specifically for readers on the go. Already a hit on Kindle and other e-readers, 01Publishing has just launched a Kickstarter to bring Whispers from the Abyss 2 to paperback.

Editor Kat Rocha is back with twenty-five new mythos-inspired tales including stories by Laird Barron (The Imago Sequence), Cody Goodfellow (Spore), Greg Stolze (Delta Green), A.C. Wise (Future Lovecraft), John Palisano (Dust of the Dead), John C. Foster (Dead Men), Orrin Grey (Painted Monsters & Other Strange Beasts), Dennis Detwiller (Delta Green), Chad Fifer (The H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast), Konstantine Paradise (Coven), and many more.

Incentives include poster art, limited bookplates, and an opportunity to become a High Librarian of Pnakotus, Record Keeper Under the Great Sandy Desert. Once the campaign is funded the 316 page anthology should be available in print by August.

The Kickstarter concludes on April 10th

Praise for Whispers from the Abyss Series:

Two short stories in Vol.1 received honorable mentions in Best Horror of the Year Vol.7 by Ellen Datlow

an anthology that had many fine moments - Peter Tennant , Black Static #46

this is a solid anthology front to back… I would certainly recommend this anthology to anyone seeking to supplement their reading with an anthology of short bursts of horror. - Allen Griffin, Innsmouth Free Press

Whispers from the Abyss describes itself as “An anthology of H.P. Lovecraft  insired short fiction.” But the authors within its pages are no slavish Elvis tribute acts. Instead, they are his mutant bastard offspring, whose mission is to misbehave dreadfully and have a wonderful time doing so. These Children of the Night run amok, gleefully trashing the very idea of florid prose and pseudo-intellectual claptrap of which the Great Old One himself was sometimes guilty. Instead, they tear down the walls, splinter the timbers, rip out the wiring and delight in sending to the bottom of the ocean the HMS Lovecraft – and all who sail in her. -  Amazing Stories Magazine

Whispers From The Abyss is filled with enough creepy treats to keep you hiding under your covers for weeks. If you like H.P. Lovecraft, odd and impending doom-like horror and the smell of fish, this is the collection for you. – Max Pfeffer, Geeks of Doom

The disturbed clown working his television studio audience of children into a primal frenzy – and the horror that follows – are the most vivid and memorable from this accomplished collection -

A great, engrossing and varied anthology of Lovecraftian fiction… - Russ Thompson, HellNotes – Dark Discoveries Magazine

[The stories] just crawl in and sit in your mind, a hint of something, and that ethereal quality is what binds most of these pieces together. - Adventures in SciFi Publishing
