Dark Wisdom – update

September 21, 2009 by Richard Wright in Journal, Writing

The astute among you will have already noticed that I’ve now updated my website with the full details and ordering in for the for The Anthology of Dark Wisdom.  The book isn’t actually released for another week yet, but as that’s going to overlap with the flight to India, after which I don’t know how long it will take to get regular web access again, I thought I’d better jump the gun by a few days.  Feel free to order now, and your copy will be with you presently.  Oh, if the cover style looks vaguely familiar, it’s because it’s by the fabulous Malcolm McClinton, creator of the definitive Hiram Grange look…

The antho collects a handful of the best stories previously printed in the (highly regarded) Dark Wisdom magazine, mixed in with stories bought specifically for the book.  I fall into the latter category with my original story ‘Mopleoli’, about a university lecturer whose specialism comes back to haunt him in the least expected way.  Other contributors include Peter Straub, Alan Dean Foster, Tom Piccirilli, John Pelan, Richard A. Lupoff, John Shirley, Patricia Lee Macomber, David Niall Wilson, and many others.  Names I’m excited to appear alongside (Straub, for feck’s sake!), and others I’m looking forward to reading for the first time.  I don’t think this is a book that will disappoint.

In other news, with the wedding over, Kirsty and I are devoting our time to pulling our life in the UK apart, choosing what to keep and what to toss.  We have a lot more life than I had previously thought.
