The Outer Dark Podcast did a feature on New Maps of Dream, and I did my first-ever reading!

From the Outer Dark Podcast episode show notes:

Anya Martin interviews editor Cody Goodfellow, about New Maps of Dream (PS Publishing, Fall 2021), including the six-year genesis of this anthology which he co-edited with the late Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., why HP Lovecraft’s lesser known Dreamlands cycle is long overdue for contemporary re-interpretation, and the assemblage of a diverse set of authors for this fascinating project.  This dynamic and even surprising interview is followed by readings from New Maps of Dream contributors  Kaaron Warren (0:45:31), Mehitobel Wilson (1:04:49), Jayaprakash Satyamurthy (1:17:33), and Rios de la Luz (1:30:13).  The authors also share back stories on their stories and their latest publishing news. Warren and Wilson make their first appearances on The Outer Dark. This episode was recorded between September 14-22, 2021.

F. Paul Wilson

Author of The Keep, The Tomb, and the Repairman Jack series (the Adversary Cycle.)

“Mehitobel Wilson (no relation) doesn’t write nearly enough, so something new from her is a cause for celebration. LAST NIGHT AT THE BLUE ALICE reveals a writer in full control of her considerable talents. The unique premise lifts it far above other tales of hauntings as each character comes alive on the page and pulls you in. Do not miss this.”

Edward Lee


“Think of Bel Wilson as a Ralph Ellison or a J.D. Salinger of Horror. She takes a long time to write a story but the result is always worth the wait. The result is always groundbreaking. She manipulates prose the way Munch, Bosch, and Goya manipulated brush strokes. With mere words she chisels art out of darkness, and these exceptional skills couldn’t be better exemplified than in LAST NIGHT AT THE BLUE ALICE, likely the most intriguing and original horror-fantasy book I’ve ever read.”

China Miéville

Winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award and the British Fantasy Award

“Caustic, classic, classy, nasty, elegant, relevant post-punk horror for people who give a shit.”

John Skipp

Author of The Art of Horrible People and many more.

“Like the best of Harlan Ellison, her fiction walks in enraged, full of fearsome intelligence and balls out to here.”
