Co-Authored Book of New H.P. Lovecraft Inspired Stories

Enoch Coffin is a proud inhabitant of Massachusetts, an artist following in the footsteps of local legend Richard Upton Pickman. Coffin is an artist with a singular quest: to capture in paint, or ink, or clay -- however he might -- sights that no mortal has ever portrayed in art before...and lived to exhibit. His quest will take him throughout actual New England locations, and that other New England of H. P. Lovecraft, where his models will be doomed souls, ravening ghouls, and entities from beyond the veil.

Individually acclaimed for their weird fiction, in this collection of short stories authors W. H. Pugmire and Jeffrey Thomas collaborate to paint the portrait of a character every bit as fascinating and unique as the subjects of his artistic encounters.

With haunting illustrations on the front and back cover by renowned illustrator Santiago Caruso and interior illustrations accompanying every story by illustrator Clint Leduc, Encounters with Enoch Coffin is one of the best-selling Dark Regions Press titles of 2013.

Praise for W.H. Pugmire

"The prose-poet of the horror/fantasy field; he may be the best prose-poet we have...perhaps the leading Lovecraftian author writing today." - S. T. Joshi

"An important figure in the fields of modern horror and the weird." - Laird Barron

"Stylistically he owes as much to Oscar Wilde and Henry James as to HPL and Poe, creating a truly unholy fusion that defies academic boundaries between ‘mainstream’ and ‘genre’ fiction." - Editor and scholar Scott Connors

 

Praise for Jeffrey Thomas

"In time he will, in this reviewer’s opinion, be listed alongside King, Barker, Koontz, and McCammon." - Brian Keene

"Jeffrey Thomas’ imagination is as twisted as it is relentless." - F. Paul Wilson

"With brutal elegance and chilling subtlety, Thomas pulls his readers into his dark visions immediately from every opening line." - Paul Di Filippo

About the authors

Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire has been writing Lovecraftian weird fiction since he was a young girl in the 1970s. His first American collection was published by Jeffrey Thomas, through his Necropolitan Press, in 1997. Pugmire's books include The Tangled Muse, Some Unknown Gulf of Night, The Strange Dark One, Uncommon Places, The Fungal Stain, and Gathered Dust and Others. In April of this year Arcane Wisdom Press will publish a new collection, Bohemians of Sesqua Valley. Wilum is currently writing his first novel, inspired by Derleth's The Lurker at the Threshold, and he will be working on an Enoch Coffin novel with Jeff in some dim future aeon.

 

Jeffrey Thomas is the author of such novels as Deadstock, Blue War, Letters from Hades, and The Fall of Hades, and such short story collections as Punktown, Nocturnal Emissions, Thirteen Specimens, and Unholy Dimensions. His stories have appeared in the anthologies The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror, The Year’s Best Horror Stories, Leviathan 3, The Thackery T. Lambshead Pocket Guide to Eccentric & Discredited Diseases, and The Solaris Book of New Science Fiction. Forthcoming from Miskatonic River Press is a role-playing game based upon Thomas’ universe of Punktown. Thomas is also an artist, and lives in Massachusetts.

 

About the artists

Santiago Caruso was born in 1982, in Quilmes, Argentina.  He is a symbolist and surreal artist, with an avant-garde concept but rooted in the nineteenth century´s  decadentism. Dedicated to the fantastique,  metaphysical horror and poetry, he had illustrated books for Libros del Zorro Rojo, Dark Regions Press, Ex Occidente Press, Tordesilhas, Tartarus Press, Random House Mondadori, Planeta and Penguin.

His work stands out both for the vigor of its poetry as well as for its technique. Member of the Beinart Surreal Art Collective since 2010, the artwork of Caruso is well represented in galleries and museums of Buenos Aires, United States, United Kingdom, Mexico and Spain.

 

Clint Leduc is an illustrator and freelance Graphic Designer living in central Massachusetts. It was Stephen Gammell's illustrations for the series SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK that first hooked him on both art and horror in the mid-80's, though his style is more obviously influenced by master engravers Gustave Dore and Albrecht Durer. His illustrations were first published by Permuted Press in THE UNDEAD: SKIN AND BONES and FLESH FEAST in 2007.
