Her eyes, those colorless orbs, penetrated him with their staring, and her perfect mouth made love to the language she uttered. The artist, his hands itching for his pen, took in her mauve skin, her coils of tawny hair; and he marveled at how luxurious that hair looked in the misty light of the place, how it seemed in his imagination at times to writhe with an almost lecherous sentience.

The title story for this new collection appears here in its second version. The first version was written as an extension to my prose-poem/vignette sequence, "Uncommon Places" (first published in THE TANGLED MUSE), in which each numbered segment is inspired by entries from H.

The stories in Gathered Dust and Others straddle the line between inventive weird fiction and Lovecraftian fanfic.

Once again Wilum delivers a fantastic collection of Mythos inspired horror! For anyone who loved his 'Sesqua Valley & Other Haunts' then this unholy mass of degenerate perfumed obscenities will be an intoxicating pleasure!
