Table of Contents: BLACK WINGS IV — TALES OF LOVECRAFTIAN HORROR Edited by S.T. Joshi

PS Publishing has posted the table of contents for the upcoming anthology Black Wings IV – Tales Of Lovecraftian Horro edited by S.T. Joshi.

Here’s the book description:

If anything has become evident in the first three volumes of the BLACK WINGS series,” editor S. T. Joshi tells us in his Introduction to BLACK WINGS IV, “it is that the Lovecraftian idiom is endlessly malleable, and suited to a variety of genres and subgenres. H. P. Lovecraft, although a strong proponent of what he called ‘weird fiction,’ himself spanned a surprisingly wide spectrum of genres in his own brief career, starting out as a writer of relatively conventional tales of the macabre and gradually expanding his scope to embrace the literature of cosmicism—a distinctive fusion of science fiction and horror that has become his signature contribution to the field. Today, we can find Lovecraftian elements in stories ranging from hard-boiled crime to pure fantasy, and this volume displays the extent to which motifs, themes, and imagery from Lovecraft’s tales can infiltrate tales that would otherwise have little relationship to one another.
