A collection. “The passing of Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire in the spring of 2019 was a grievous blow to his many friends, colleagues, and devotees, but his literary legacy is likely to endure for decades to come. In this volume, which spans the spectrum of his work from the 1980s to the present day, Pugmire demonstrates why he became perhaps the leading proponent of Lovecraftian short fiction in his time. Several tales are set in Pugmire’s Sesqua Valley—a parallel to Lovecraft’s Arkham Country, and based on the Pacific Northwest topography he knew from a lifetime’s residence. But beyond the mere evocation of landscape, Pugmire’s tales are enlivened by the presence of vivid, piquant characters—male and female, gay and straight, sinister and naïve, all of whom contribute to the atmosphere of refined strangeness that was Pugmire’s signature achievement.” This is a print-on-demand title. #64288
