Short Story Saturday: Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu roster of writers

You may have heard me mention Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu, my next anthology as editor, on this blog occasionally over the last month or so.

You may even have visited the Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu Kickstarter page yourself and perhaps even watched the video listing the names of so of those involved.

But maybe you'd also like to know what the writers on the roster are working on for the anthology. Well here are a few hints...

Michael Carroll gives us his take on Romeo and Juliet.

Jonathan Oliver revisits the start-crossed lovers but in a very different, modern context.

Josh Reynolds, Guy Haley and John Reppion give us a trio of tales that feature the Bard himself.

Ian Edginton and James Lovegrove, both inspired by the same legendary stage direction, take things in two very different directions.

C L Werner takes on Henry V and the cosmic horrors of the Cthulhu-verse.

Adrian Tchaikovsky revisits Hamlet in Something Rotten.

Andrew Lane tackles Shakespeare's most famous Roman play, Julius Caesar.

Adrian Chamberlin brings out the horror in the Tragedy of Richard III.

Pat Kelleher brings his exacting scholar's eye to King Lear.

And Scottish writer Graham McNeill reinterprets Shakespeare's infamous Scottish Play.

As well as all that, we also have Jan Siegel, Danie Ware and Nimue Brown bringing us Shakespearean Cthulhoid poetry, and there are even more stories yet to be announced!

So what are you waiting for? If you haven't backed the project on Kickstarter already, now is the time to do so!
