InnsmouthI'm very pleased to report that Founders House Publishing now has a tentative release calendar for the rest of my epic fantasy with tentacles, The Weird of Hali. Here's when to expect the next squamous, rugose volume: 

The Weird of Hali: Dreamlands - April 2019
The Weird of Hali: Providence - June 2019
The Weird of Hali: Red Hook - August 2019
The Weird of Hali: Arkham - October 2019

They're all written at this point, and the only remaining revisions needed are extremely minor, so any of my readers who've been spending years now waiting for George R.R. Martin or Patrick Rothfuss to get off their duffs and finish the last volumes of A Song of Ice and Fire and The Kingkiller Chronicle respectively need not worry about having a repeat of that experience!

I'll post more details, including advance ordering data, as those come in. Meanwhile, we can all listen for those low eerie noises out there in the night, as of strange shapes moving closer...

Can't wait! Just finished Chorazin (and, accidentally, a glass of a beautiful 11% Imperial Stout which I'm sure Justin would have approved of...) and I'm already having withdrawal symptons... I'll just have to fill the time with some of Mr Lovecraft's writing until the REAL stuff is available ;-)

The last one will be out just in time for my birthday! Just finished book three and I'm excited to read the rest of them.

I look forward to reading the forth coming books. I have certainly enjoyed the first three. It occurred to me as I was reading the most recent release, largely because it made me hungry, and because I was getting a bit confused with all the Old Ones names, areas of influence and the various churches and orders, that an appendix was in order that included some of the recipes for the glorious food you write so deliciously about and more details about the Old Ones and their followers. I would happily buy a copy.

Are you familiar with Lobscouse and Spotted Dog, by Anne Chotzinoff Grossman and Lisa Grossman Thomas, with a foreword by Patrick O'Brian? These two women set about finding or creating a recipe for every dish mentioned in every book of the Aubrey/Maturin series of historical novels by Mr. O'Brian. The novels are set in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars. (A so-so movie was made out of two of the novels; the books are better.)

The authors are expert cooks, did lot of culinary historical research, and used ingredients and cooking methods as close as possible to those used in the early eighteenth century. All the recipes are tested. They include directions when the method is unfamiliar, such as how to make a freestanding crust to hold the ingredients of a tall meat pie. Many of the recipes are preceded by apropos quotations from the novel in which the dish appears.

The cookbook also includes words and music for a few songs of the period. It is very well organized.

Although its intent is rather different from what you're discussing here, this seems to be a good place to give a shout out to The Necronomnomnom, a cookbook of Eldritch horror. I recently received my copy after backing it on Kickstarter. It should be available online and via specialty retailers soon. I'll bring mine to the Midsummer Potluck, perhaps with a sample preparation or two.

Not to be confused with the very similarly titled The NecroNomNomNomicon: Cookbook of the Dead by Felix Galvan, which is apparently not a cookbook at all, but a novel that juxtaposes the supernatural with the far eerier (to me at least) world of cooking contest shows.

I have eaten cheap ramie, but Owen's didn't sound that good. I am not a great cook either, but I am a pretty good eater. Thanks for the consideration.

Glad to hear Averoigne will be a part of the Haliverse... those CAS stories are some of my favorites of the mythos.

That's right, I do recall that from Kingsport! I was going to reread it before Chorazin because, but I couldn't wait and started Chorazin a couple days ago when I got it. I thought one of the Hali books was goin to be subtitled Hyperborea, so is that a stand alone now? Will it take place during the Hali timeline, or after?

What works out better for you and your publishers, buying the book or the ebook version? And what, in your view, would be better for the reader?
