Re: Create your own short story collection!

In case anybody's interested, I'm starting a "King In Yellow" poetry anthology. Bruce Boston and Mark Samuels have signed on, getting in touch with Donn Webb about it.

The rule for the anthology is one and one only:

The poem has to be in the style of the decadents---David Park Barnitz, Ernest Dowson, etc.

I can only add one more Scottish writer to your list at present: Daniel McGachey, author of the collection They That Dwell In Dark Places. He has also written a number of Sherlock Holmes stories and had stories broadcast as Imagination Theatre podcasts. Click the link in his name, above, for more information.

Both Daniel and Craig Herbertson (you've listed Craig's The Acid House above) were contributors to Filthy Creations Magazine, which I used to edit and illustrate (and very rarely) write for. Craig co-edited some issues towards the end, but alas we're no longer in touch. I have nonetheless emailed him a link so that he'll see he's been namechecked here.

I have found my old review of McGachey's They That Dwell in Dark Places (click here), with Craig and Dan chipping in with comments. Happier times. Actually the review probably exists in some form on this site!

OK, now give me time and maybe I can figure out my own dream anthology...

Re: Create your own short story collection!

This thread has already produced one very much-welcomed response for me; namely a response from a much-missed old friend. But this isn’t the place. After removing/replacing ten stories, this is what’s left:

How Love Came to Professor Gildea by Robert Hichens
Roxana Runs Lunatic by R Murray Gilchrist
It’s a Good Life by Jerome Bixby
Jacqueline Ess: Her Will and Testament by Clive Barker
The Whistling Room by W H Hodgson
Submerged by A L Barker
The Ball Room by China Mieville (with Emma Bircham & Max Schaefer)
Dead On Her Feet by Cornell Woolrich (either that or Papa Benjamin)
Not From Around Here by David J Schow
The Stains by Robert Aickman
The Saliva Tree by Brian Aldiss
The Drowned Giant by J G Ballard
The Thing On Outer Shoal by P Schuyler Miller
City Fishing by Steve Rasnic
Sun City by Lisa Tuttle
A Room With a Vie by Tanith Lee
Calcutta, Lord of Nerves by Poppy Z Brite (either that or His Mouth Will Taste of Wyrmwood)
At the Mountains of Madness by H P Lovecraft (it would have been nice to pair The Hound with Poppy Z Brite’s ‘Wyrmwood’ rewrite of it, but The Hound has already been listed.)
The Gorgon by Thomas Ligotti
The Summer People by Shirley Jackson
Men Without Bones by Gerald Kersh
The Lady of the House of Love by Angela Carter
The Web by Saki
Same Time, Same Place by Mervyn Peake

Titles reluctantly removed as already listed… The Yellow Wallpaper, The White People, The Willows, Seaton’s Aunt, The Bloody Chamber, The Flying Worm, The Hound, The Bus, Sredni Vashtar, I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, The Last Feast of Harlequin (I should blush, I’ve read only a couple of Mr Ligotti’s collections. Please don’t expel me!)

I wonder if anyone’s put together a collection of horror stories involving bus journeys? Peake’s bus journey (first appeared in Carnell’s Weird Shadows From Beyond) is as disquieting as Shirley Jackson’s. Offhand I can think of one more creepy bus journey, though the title eludes me for the moment.
