Joshi's upcoming anthology The Red Brain will also feature a new Mark Samuels novella. Joshi apparently considers it to be one of the best stories that appeared in his recent anthologies.

I'm not surprised. Samuels doesn't strike me as the kind of writer who likes to promote his own work, so it's nice when Joshi gives credit where credit is undoubtedly due. It's not how many are praising X work or writer - it's "who" is praising it.

"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."

~ Clark Ashton Smith, "The Devotee of Evil"

Mark has no desire to release those stories as they are. He's said that he would need to revise them, perhaps extensively. I hope he does one day, but I'm sure he'd rather write new fiction (and before he does anything he needs to get back on his feet... see the Pilgrim Stranger thread for info on the unfortunate circumstances he's currently facing... and there is a PayPal donation link on his blog if you'd like to help).

Regarding Written in Darkness, I'm lucky to have the Egaeus version, but I'm glad that his work is being made as widely available as possible.

Re: Samuels, "Written in Darkness" available

As far as the book's cover portrait goes, I'd say less Lemmy and more Leon Trotsky. Seriously, thanks for the absorbing interview, and it's good to see that Mark doesn't have horns after all.

Re: Samuels, "Written in Darkness" available

I guess it was inevitable. First comment under the video on youtube:

Quote
"Hail Mark! Hail our Celtic Fuhrer! Gurdjieffian reincarnation of Bloody Baron in divine conjunction with the soul of Great Alchemist Machen! Thrice Blessed Poet of Brexit, who shall restore Europe thru his Sublime Alchemy! West is your Magnum Opus, Mein Fuhrer!"
At least get your umlauts right...

That appeared so soon after the upload that I doubt the commenter even watched the interview. In fact, the account from which the comment is made is so barren that I suspect it was opened merely in order to make the comment. Such are the motives by which some appear to live.

Re: Samuels, "Written in Darkness" available

I wish you kept it running and interviewed the deliveryman. Great vid. Wasn't expecting to be name checked. Didn't really think Mark even remembered me.
