Eldritch Embraces gobbles “Take This, and Eat”

A couple of days ago, I mentioned I’d found an anthology whose theme was a perfect fit for a story of mine.  Seems the editor of said anthology–titled Eldritch Embraces–agrees.   Three days from submission to sale.

Eldritch Embraces will be published Dragon’s Roost Press.  The anthology aims to “put the love back in Lovecraft.”   Yes, folks, it’s all about love, romance, and Elder Gods.  And if that isn’t cool enough, it’s a charity anthology, to raise money for a canine rescue operation.

My story is called “Take This, and Eat.”  Here’s a (*cough*) taste:

A kind of chicken teriyaki dish, Leah had said.  And it certainly looked promising at first—generous portions of noodles and meat, without too many vegetables for Darren to pick around.  It smelled spicy, sparking a bit of an appetite in him.  Using the tongs the waiter had brought, he optimistically helped himself to a heaping plateful.

Then he caught a glimpse of the tentacle in his food, and his appetite vanished.

At first he thought he might be mistaken, but a second glance confirmed it—long, black, rubbery, with small suckers running down its length.

Eldritch Embraces should be out sometime next year.

Been a long dry spell.   Happy to break it.
