Welcome to the first issue of Nightscapes in the year 2000. Plus it is also our thirteenth issue, if you put any stock into superstitions, which we don't. This issue is a special mini-R.S. Cartwright issue, featuring five of his stories. If you enjoy reading his stories, you really should visit his web site, Arkham Shadows.

Our 14th issue shouldn't be too far behind this issue, as we already have enough fiction for that issue. Stay tuned!

If you have a link to Nightscapes on your web page, it would be appreciated if you would use this URL: This links to the current issue of Nightscapes and all past issues are linked at the bottom of this page. If you would like to use a banner for the link to us, you can download this banner.

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!
