The Kickstarter for the upcoming Autumn Cthulhu anthology from Lovecraft eZine Press has been a success, having reached the initial goal of $8,000 within four days.

The Kickstarter has gone on to reach the $13,000 stretch goal to include a story by S.P. Miskowski, and most recently the $16,000 stretch goal to include a Robert Levy story. The third and final stretch goal of $19,000, if met, will result in the inclusion of a story by Orrin Grey.
I respect and enjoy the work of all three writers, and really hope the book may be expanded to include all of them.
The official Table of Contents was announced before the Kickstarter, so it does not include names or titles for any of the writers related to the stretch goals, but here’s what’s already included for sure:
Andy Kaufman Creeping Through the Trees – Laird Barron
There is a Bear in the Woods – Nadia Bulkin
Anchor – John Langan
The Stiles of Palemarsh – Richard Gavin
The Night is a Sea – Scott Thomas
In the Spaces Where You Once Lived – Damien Angelica Walters
Trick or the Other Thing – Joseph S. Pulver, Sr.
Grave Goods – Gemma Files
After the Fall – Jeffrey Thomas
A Shadow Passing – Daniel Mills
Lavinia in Autumn – Ann K. Schwader
Memories of the Fall – Pete Rawlik
The Smoke Lodge – Michael Griffin
The End of the Season – Trent Kollodge
The Black Azalea – Wendy Wagner
Cul-De-Sac Virus – Evan Dicken
Of course with two or three new writers/stories included, this sequence will likely change, unless the new additions are just stuck at the end (or beginning), which seems unlikely.
