Editors shape how what we read and how we read it. Not simply by curating an anthology, but by defining the themes of a collection, commissioning new work, and resurrecting and reprinting deep cuts from the past to make them available once again. An editor’s knowledge and acumen inform and define their contribution not only to what Lovecraftian and Mythos fiction is published, but how it is perceived. As such, editors are as worthy a subject to examine as Mythos authors and their works.
The Editor Spotlight is an occasional feature which will zoom in and examine select editors, to delve into their philosophy and relationship with the Mythos, and what their impact has been on Lovecraftian fiction.
