Song of the Satyrs, the newest anthology from Angelic Knight Press, is now available for the Kindle and in print. Edited by Aaron J. French, the anthology includes stories by authors such as WH Pugmire and Mark Valentine, as well as myself.
My contribution, “The Briggs Hill Path”, sees occult investigator Harley Warren and his assistant Randolph Carter, confront a monstrous, satyr-like manifestation of a certain black goat of the woods. The story had several sources of inspiration: the songs “Six Gun Gorgon Dynamo” by the Darkest of the Hillside Thickets and “Daughter of the Glade” by SJ Tucker, and ‘The Howler’, part of HP Lovecraft’s sonnet cycle, “Fungi from Yuggoth”.
And if you’ve been paying attention, you might have noticed that this’ll make Warren and Carter’s fourth outing by me. If you’d like to read the stories in something approaching chronological order, it goes thusways: “The Savage Dreamer”, “The Briggs Hill Path”, “Dead Man’s Tongue” and “The Bells of Northam”.
