Sunday Aug 20th: HPL & Astronomy presentation by Edward Guimont
Matthew M. Bartlett is the author of several short story collections including Gateways to Abomination, its sequel Creeping Waves, and Where Night Cowers. His new short novel is entitled The Obsecration. He has recorded several spoken word records and has stories published in a variety of anthologies and journals. In late 2020 he joined the Great Resignation, immediately launching his current ongoing project, now in its third year: a subscription service for monthly illustrated chapbooks, entitled the WXXT Program Guide. He lives in Western Massachusetts with his wife Katie Saulnier (whose art graces the cover of Gateways to Abomination) and their cats Peachpie and Larry.
Rick Claypool is the author of the post-apocalyptic workplace horror novella The Mold Farmer (Six Gallery Press, 2020), the weird dystopian superhero novel Leech Girl Lives (Spaceboy Books, 2017), and the not-for-children horror children's book Tentacle Head (2022). His short fiction appears in several online publications and anthologies. If he’s not writing, he’s probably in the woods, looking under logs and rocks for fungi and slime molds. He lives in Rhode Island. Find him online at rickclaypool.org.
