Dead Reckonings #21

September 10, 2017 § Leave a comment

My article on R Muuray Gilchrist, concentrating on the mythic and floral symbolism in his weird short story ‘The Crimson Weaver’, has been published in Hippocampus Press’ Dead Reckonings 21, the Spring 2017 edition.

I couldn’t be more pleased for my piece to be the opening article in this re-imagined version of a classic journal, especially alongside other writing by the likes of Ramsay Campbell and ST Joshi.

“[Gilchrist’s] finest works of what we would now call weird horror – where “suicide, madness, drunkenness, disfigurement, dwarfs, hereditary diseases and strange deaths abound” – sit perfectly between the gloomy corridors of Poe and the awful vistas of Clark Ashton Smith.”
