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

Volume 3, Number 3, Whole # 12

Well, here we are with the December issue of Nightscapes. Still behind on the schedule. The main portion of the issue has been ready for the last month, but I recently took a full-time job, which has really cut into my free time.

Besides the usual fiction, nonfiction, parodies, poetry, artwork, and reviews, this time, in the nonfiction section, we have reviews of NecronomiCon IV, which was held in August in Providence, Rhode Island. Three of the reviews previously were posted on the alt.horror.cthulhu newgroup. For those who like to have a picture to put with a name, we offer the below picture taken at the Con. Other pictures can be found in the Nonfiction section, courtesy of Joseph S. Pulver, Sr.

We do hope you enjoy the material we have provided this time around, and will come back again for further pleasant, but horrifying, reading experiences.


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!
