In August, Drabblecast, the weird-fiction podcast had their annual H. P. Lovecraft month. One of the stories they ran was Maybe the Stars  by  Samantha Henderson which was a neat take on the mythos, casting the Deep Ones in a sympathetic light.

And for fans of science-fiction, even though it didn’t contain any anthro characters, “The Wreck of the Charles Dexter Ward” (part one and part two)  by  Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette was a very entertaining and engaging story. It’s the third tale set in the shared world by the writing duo, which borrows elements of both Lovecraft and Alice in Wonderland.
