She Walks in Shadows

They emerge from the shadows, to claim the night ….

Women from around the world delve into Lovecraftian depths, penning and illustrating a variety of Weird horrors. The pale and secretive Lavinia wanders through the woods, Asenath is a precocious teenager with an attitude, and the Ancient Egyptian pharaoh Nitocris has found a new body in distant America. And do you have time to hear a word from our beloved mother Shub-Niggurath?

Defiant, destructive, terrifying, and harrowing, the women in She Walks in Shadows are monsters and mothers, heroes and devourers. Observe them in all their glory. Iä! Iä!

Reviews

“The women (and generally similar beings) represented defy easy categorization. Sometimes they win and sometimes they lose. Sometimes they are recognizable Lovecraftian characters in their own right and sometimes they merely encounter them. Some are monsters and some are victims, though more often, both and/or neither. SHE WALKS IN SHADOWS has garnered itself a well-deserved World Fantasy Award nomination for Best Anthology.”

Princeton University’s Figments

“What I love more than anything about this collection, and which I think blows out of the water that Lovecraftian fiction belongs to a certain niche, is the varied settings, characters and mythical interweaving into such a variety of cultures of this collection.”

SQ Mag

“All of these pieces are well written, and the description contained in these pages is something to be admired. As with their inspiration, this book is a perfect read for when you have a few moments to spend diving into another reality. Lovecraft fans will appreciate the numerous allusions to his work or direct references to events or characters from the tales we already love.”

Horror Fuel

“It is a cornucopia of imaginative force and literary talent, and each of the fictions it contains works, in some way, to simultaneously expand and interrogate the limits of what “Lovecraftian” can mean.”

Postscripts to Darkness

“Several of the stories stuck with me long after I finished reading the anthology, and some may linger in my nightmares for a very long time.”
