Howdy, all! I am an obsess'd H. P. Lovecraft fanboy & I love love love writing Cthulhu Mythos weird fiction. I love connecting with others who write Mythos fic or who are fascinated with the fiction of H. P. Lovecraft. I'm really excited to ye max about the forthcoming convention, NecronomiCon Providence 2013, that will take place in Lovecraft's home town in August of 2013. Should be lots and lots of Mythos writers gather'd there. Looking forward to mingling with everyone here who is devoted to the Mythos and Lovecraft.

As a professional author, I write under the name of W. H. Pugmire or Wilum Pugmire. My fiction has appeared in such anthologies as The Children of Cthulhu, Love in Vein, Black Wings of Cthulhu, The Book of Cthulhu, New Cthulhu" The Recent Weird, and S. T. Joshi's forthcoming omnibus of Mythos stories from Centipede Press, A Mountain Walked.

My own books include Sesqua Valley & Other Haunts (Mythos Books), The Fungal Stain and other Dream and Uncommon Places (Hippocampus Press), Some Unknown Gulf of Night (Arcane Wisdom Press), Gathered Dust and Others (Dark Regions Press) and The Tangled Muse (Centipede Press). Besides the fiction of H. P. Lovecraft, my work is inspired by the decadents, particularly Wilde and Baudelaire, and by Edgar A. Poe. My work also wears ye remnants of my lifestyle as a queer punk transvestite.
