New Market: Cthulhurotica

The title is neither a typo nor a joke. Yes, there is a new call for submissions for a Lovecraftian erotica anthology. One would have to be crazy to get down with an Old One or one of their servitors, but then again, loss of sanity is the first sign that you are in a Lovecraftian tale.


Cthulhurotica is looking for short stories of Lovecraft-insprired erotica, between 1,500 and 3,000 words. Originals only, no reprints. Multiple submissions are ok, but we will only print the one we think suits us the best. Stories do not need to contain elements of horror, though it's definitely encouraged. Cthulhu does not need to specifically appear in the story, as long as it contains recognizable elements from Lovecraft - Shoggoths, Deep Ones, Nyarlathotep, cultists, or mythos characters like William Dyer, Danforth, or Dr. Allen Halsey.

You can find our website at http://cthulhurotica.com with our submission guidelines, forum, and online submissions form. Our twitter feed is @cthulhurotica and we're also on Duotrope.

I left your icon up on her fanpage when I reposted this link. I figured you wouldn't mind, knowing you!

Can I have the tentacle monster talking in LolCatese? That would be REAL horror!

I couldn't help it; I immediately translated this to the Sanity loss rules from the old Chaosium Call of Cthulhu game.

'Okay, so this is a minor servitor. Square the number of dice you normally roll for an encounter, minimum of two dice. If it was a major servitor, minimum of four. For a Great Old one, cube the number of dice, minimum of six. Just roll ten dice for an outer or elder god. If it's a Shoggoth, don't worry about rolling. You're not going to survive anyway. When you fail your roll, you're a sex slave. NO, you can't keep running the character as a PC. Just...no."

Why, thank you, Jen. That's one of the nicest things anyone has said to me this year.
