HARKSEN'S H.P.LOVECRAFT PAGE
- - -
WEBMASTER: ToGin
____________


The main purpose of this small press imprint is to publish stories that are inspired by the American weird tale/horror writer H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) and the sub-genre known as "the Cthulhu Mythos."

From time to time there will also be non-fiction publications with new, fresh angles on the weird tale genre, again mainly dealing, in some way, with all things Lovecraftian and that particular branch of the genre. Occasionally there will also be poetry collections and non-Lovecraftian material, but that will be rare.




A Few Words On Editing, Typesetting & Aesthetics
Too many publications nowadays are marked by lousy editing and close to no sense of aestethics when designing the book. Although H. Harksen Productions is a very small publisher, where all the work is done in what spare time the publisher has, it is a clear aim to create books where the editing is good, and where it is evident that care has been taken to the design of the book, be that general design, layout, typesetting and artwork.

The first publication by H. Harksen Productions was not without its errors in this regard, but it is evident with each new publication that there are vast improvements. So these goals are always at the fore when working on a book project. I am very dedicated to this.

Good stories deserve nothing less.




Brief History of H. Harksen Productions
It all started in fun: In the early 1990s I worked on various amateur productions, and I wanted some "company tag line" to go with them all. And while I am Danish, most of my work was in English... And so "H. Harksen Productions" was spawned.

The imprint first became an "official" publisher in December 2006, although the first publcations saw the day of light in 2008.

It is my hope that H. Harksen Productions can help bring to light more new weird tales writers. There are many, and the genre that Lovecraft started has proven to be a very fertile ground for wonderful, dark tales of the imagination.

Enjoy your reading, enjoy your writing... And yes, please, submit a story:-)
