Welcome to Miskatonic University: An Anthology

Created by Scott Gable

An anthology of modern short stories inspired by that strange, magical place known as Miskatonic University.

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Welcome to Miskatonic University Full Release
3 months ago – Wed, Jul 24, 2019 at 08:36:23 PM

It's here! The anthology Welcome to Miskatonic University is now all grown up and out in the world with its public release! The MOBI and EPUB ebooks are available for download at the BackerKit. (I thought there was an automatic notice that got sent out, but I'm realizing that I had to do that manually, which should have just happened, so my apologies if you're just now realizing the ebooks were finished.) The remaining ebooks will be finished and uploaded farther in advance of the public release.

Some quiet horror, some dark humor, and some weird slice of life at this storied New England institution and the surrounding Arkham by some wonderful authors.

"The stories vary in form and content, but their connection to the university is always clear. [...] There is also beer. This short story collection will fit right in with any horror or new-adult collection." (Booklist)

Stories by Brandon O'Brien, Bennett North, Kristi DeMeester, Elliot Cooper, Liz Schriftsteller, K.G. McAbee, Brenda Kezar, Nate Southard, Scott R Jones, Gina Marie Guadagnino, Joseph S. Pulver, Marcus Chan, and Gwendolyn Kiste.

And it includes "My Miskatonic," presenting some of those strange people you might bump into on the streets of Arkham, by Matthew M. Bartlett and Yves Tourigny. With cover by Michael Bukowski and Jeremy Zerfoss.

So all of the print orders have now gone out with the following exceptions: It Came from Miskatonic University and Nowhereville, which are both close to being finished, and though Catfish Lullaby prints were sent out, the ebook is not yet finished. MU bumper stickers will ship with the two final anthologies.

Thanks for reading! More soon...

First Book Ready to Ship

Whew! Busy bunch of weeks.

Just before leaving for Emerald City Comicon, what should appear on my doorstep but the hardcover copies of Welcome to Miskatonic University! So you may have seen me there all excited and geeking out over our newest book. The con was so much fun. But four days is a lot of days, and I came back exhausted and, yes, quite sick with con crud. Which I'm mostly recovered from now.

I'm going to start shipping WTMU to backers (along with any add-on orders for currently published books). It'll take a little bit to package all the orders, but I hope to have they all on their way by next week. The second anthology and the other new books will ship together when I wrap those up.

Other good news, final edits for our next novel, The Great Faerie Strike, have been turned over to author Spencer Ellsworth, so that one's that much closer to being finished as well for any of you that have pre-ordered it. So next up is the layout for Catfish Lullaby and finalizing edits on It Came from Miskatonic University and Nowhereville.

Here's some pics to tide you over until you can hold a copy in your own hands!
