Volume 2, Number 2, Whole # 7

We present seven original stories this time around and, although we only have approximately half the wordage we would like to include, we don't think that you will feel slighted after going through this issue of Nightscapes. (And, besides, it's free!)

In addition to our fiction, we have three pieces from The Book of Eibon, the first of our profiles of Mythos artists, our first scenario for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game (anybody out there have any Tales of Terror that aren't on the Internet?), seven poems, fifteen pieces of artwork, and a couple of reviews.

The 1997 Mythos Web Online Awards have now been finalized and the results have been put online by Peter Guenther. We wish to thank everyone who participated in the voting and, even though we came in second, we want to extend a hearty congratulations to Peter A. Worthy for his ezine Mythos Online, which took first place!


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.

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. (Of course, after the issue goes online, all rights are returned to the contributors. They can then put it online on their own web site or submit it to a print media publication.) We will be using one reprint story per issue, but this will be from the print media. 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.

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, the creators, will let us present your work to the readers under the Nightscapes banner! If you are not sure your creation is good enough, submit it and let us decide!
