Praise for Whispers from the Abyss Vol. 1: 

“…the authors within its pages are no slavish Elvis tribute acts. Instead, they are his mutant bastard offspring, whose mission is to misbehave dreadfully and have a wonderful time doing so. These Children of the Night run amok, gleefully trashing the very idea of florid prose and pseudo-intellectual claptrap of which the Great Old One himself was sometimes guilty. Instead, they tear down the walls, splinter the timbers, rip out the wiring and delight in sending to the bottom of the ocean the HMS Lovecraft – and all who sail in her.” -Amazing Stories Magazine 

“…many fine moments!” -Black Static Magazine 

“…a solid anthology front to back…”. -Innsmouth Free Press 

“…the horror that follows are the most vivid and memorable from this accomplished collection.” 

A great, engrossing and varied anthology of Lovecraftian fiction…” -Dark Discoveries Magazine 

All about that moment I love, the moment where something approaches. The moment where you close your eyes and hope it goes away. It will. But there’ll be another story right behind it. And another. And another.” -Alasdair Stuart, host of the PSEUDOPOD podcast.

Finished cover art.

The Whispers from the Abyss Vol.2 open call is officially closed and 01Publishing wants to thank everybody who has submitted their stories and manuscripts to us.

Casefile: ARKHAM is coming to 01Publishing!

Yes, you’re hearing it here first. 01Publishing is proud to announce the latest edition to our catalog. Casefile: Arkham. A horror noir story set in the gritty streets of Arkham. Josh Finney and Patrick McEvoy (the crew that brought you World War Kaiju) once again plays with the conventions of history and popular culture and pose a singularly interesting question to their readers. “What if Raymond Chandler wrote Lovecraft stories?”

Casefile: ARKHAM was a smashing success on Kickstarter and now 01Publishing is proud to be bringing it to readers around the world.

Set in the mid-1940s, Casefile: ARKHAM follows Hank Flynn, a down on his luck private eye who is back from the war and now working the mean streets of the most cursed city on Earth—Arkham, Massachusetts. And things only get worse for Flynn when a wealthy uptown socialite hires him to track down an artist by the name of Pickman. What begins as a simple missing persons case leads Flynn down a dark path of flesh eating ghouls, vengeful witches, and the notorious Innsmouth mafia.

Both Patrick McEvoy and Josh Finney will be at Big Wow in San Jose April 18-19 at AA107.

Casefile: Arkham is tentatively scheduled to hit the street in September of 2015.
