We apologize to all of our contributors and our art director for the lateness of this issue. Corey Whitworth had the title banners to us by the end of May. We then proceeded to take a two-week vacation in northern Wisconsin. And it has taken us three and a half weeks to catch up.

Corey Whitworth, our art director, will be taking a leave of absence from Nightscapes. We wish to state here that Corey has done an admirable job with the graphics and the "Reader's Guide to the Cthulhu Mythos/Nightscapes" web site would not have been given 1st place in the 1997 Mythos On-Line Awards for Best Art for a Website with out his inspired renditions. Thank you, Corey. And, on that note, we would like to ask if there is anyone out there that would be willing to do a fiction title banners for Nightscapes? We would appreciate the assistance.

We do think that we have a potpourri of material for the readers this time around (much as we did last issue). We hope you have a pleasant, but horrifying, reading experience.

Back in Nightscapes # 5, we brought forward to our readers the plight of Edward Phlager and his web site The House of Cthulhu. Although Ed will not be putting his web site back online, we will. We just need time to locate all of the cover illustrations and obtain permissions to use them. But we probably won't have time to update Ed's pages, so it will be a static symbol of one person's creativeness against the unwashed masses.

Last issue we mentioned the 1997 Mythos Web On-Line Awards. As you can see, having come through the index page, we are now sporting the award images.


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!
