WildClaw Interviewed by Innsmouth Free Press, part I

Many of us here at WildClaw were recently interviewed by the good folks at Innsmouth Free Press as part of their celebration of H.P. Lovecraft's birthday. IFP is a faux-news site devoted to the work of Lovecraft and all things related to the Lovecraftian/Cthulhu Mythos Universe.

Here's part 1 of 5: Ambassador of Horror, Dr. AC himself, Aaron Christensen. Stay tuned for more WildClaw interviews in the coming week!

And here's a bit more about what they're doing over in Innsmouth. Check 'em out:

Innsmouth Free Press is a collaborative effort. We want readers and writers to help us map out and flesh out Innsmouth and the surrounding area, and to do it in epistolary form through news stories, opinion pieces, lifestyles articles, which blur the boundaries between fantasy and reality. Metafiction, if you will.

We also seek to publish short fiction inspired by Lovecraft’s writing, especially fiction that explores interesting, novel settings and characters juxtaposed with Lovecraft’s original fiction.

Our aim at Innsmouth Free Press is not to keep a static website that is updated with fiction every few months, but to maintain a breathing, energetic publication which evolves with help from the user; a publication where fiction does not take the shape of a self-contained short story.

In short, we’d love it if you would join us in this virtual playground. Many of Innsmouth’s streets and locations remain unmapped. Help us discover what lies in the shadows.
