Wilum Pugmire continues to be a one man powerhouse of Lovecraftian stories. He recently announced a new and as yet unnamed story collection that should be out this summer from Dark Regions Press.
This development follows an exceptionally busy and successful year for Pugmire's work. Centipede Press published a mammoth collection of his fiction, The Tangled Muse, and several new short stories burst onto the scene in anthologies. Meanwhile, his other collections like Weird Inhabitants of Sesqua Valley are gaining attention in the weird community.
Pugmire continues to fire out quality Lovecraftian fiction at a fast clip, perhaps quicker than any other contemporary weird horror writer. And it doesn't look like there's any sign of him slowing down. This is great news for readers, since Pugmire's efforts are sure to continue enhancing his own literary portfolio, and the wider stature of Lovecraft's modern legacy.
