Nightscapes -- Where the dark of night meets the reality of day


Volume 1 Number 3

Edward P. Berglund
Corey T. Whitworth


Nightscapes is an electronic magazine that is devoted to the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft and all those creators who have followed. We hope to entertain you with fiction, artwork, poetry, and whatever else happens to come our way, whatever guise it may be in, as long as it deals with the Cthulhu Mythos.

Well, we made our goal of 50,000 words again this issue -- actually, it is 55,000 words! We will always need the help of you, the reader and/or creator, for without you, we do not have a magazine. If you are a writer, artist, gamer, what-have-you, let us showcase your creations. All we ask is that whatever you submit, that it not have appeared on the Internet before now. We will be using one reprint story per issue, but this will be from the print media. (Due to the length of Tierney's story, we are foregoing the reprint this issue.) If you are a reader, and you know of a story that appeared in the fanzines of the late 70's/early 80's that you think is worth reprinting, let us know. We'll try and get in contact with the author to get his permission to reprint it. Contact us at Nightscapes.

In this issue we are pleased to present Richard L. Tierney's 35,000-word novella, "The Lords of Pain." While reading this you may think of a certain Indiana Jones, but let it be known, Tierney was there first. This was written back in the early 1960's. (Of course H. Rider Haggard was really first, with Allan Quartermain!)

For the fan of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, there is never enough new stories. And a Mythos story doesn't have to be entirely in the Lovecraft mode. We have seen Mythos stories written as science fiction, fantasies, mysteries, westerns, and even romance tales. Whatever the genré, we hope you will enjoy what the creators have prepared, and we present to you, under the Nightscapes banner!
