Recommended Reading: Shoggoths in Bloom

A good friend turned me on to this Elizabeth Bear story about shoggoths, monsters of Lovecraftian lore. It’s longer than the stories I usually promote in this space, but not by much, and it’s worth the extra few minutes it takes to finish. It’s also chock full of delicious social commentary and historical context, two things I love to see in genre fiction.

Shoggoths in Bloom

Shameless plug: For more Lovecraft-style horror stories, I suggest Historical Lovecraft: Tales of Horror Through Time. The ebook is only $3.99!
