2022 General Reading: October (+ Old Phuul update)

Completed reads for October:

  • Shadows of Ecstasy, by Charles Williams
  • Haita the Shepherd, by Ambrose Bierce
  • An Inhabitant of Carcosa, by Ambrose Bierce
  • The Complete Fiction of H.P. Lovecraft (collection), by H.P. Lovecraft
  • The Emperor of Dreams (collection), by Clark Ashton Smith
  • A Voyage to Sfanomoë, by Clark Ashton Smith
  • A Vintage from Atlantis, by Clark Ashton Smith

  • The Complete Chronicles of Conan (collection), by Robert E. Howard
  • Tales of Terror and Darkness (collection), by Algernon Blackwood
  • The Wendigo, by Algernon Blackwood
  • The Willows, by Algernon Blackwood

The Emperor of Dreams contains forty-six Clark Ashton Smith stories, while Tales of Terror and Darkness contains forty-three Algernon Blackwood ones. Alas, unlike the Lovecraft and Howard collections, I then had to follow up individual Smith and Blackwood stories elsewhere.

(As one can see, it was a month for revisiting old-school Weird Fiction, and indeed at the time of writing I have moved onto Arthur Machen. Let’s just say that Lovecraft isn’t shy about his source material).

Due to computer issues (only recently resolved), the only Old Phuul work I managed was at the start of the month. That was, at least, the most substantial work I had managed on the manuscript since July.
