The Team Netherworld Creations publishing company was created to inflict works such as this one on an unsuspecting world. These pulpy serials were inspired by the likes of the mad New Englander From Beyond the Stars, H.P. Lovecraft himself, and by the mad cultists who created the Chaosium RPG.
To reduce the genre of these tales to the most basic component, they are Cthulhu Mythos fan fiction. This ain’t no high-fallutin’, highbrow literature. This ain’t no popular fiction neither. These are the New Weird Tales.
With apologies to Sheryl Crow, “All I Wanna Do” started playing in my head when I wrote that paragraph, and I went with it.
For years works such as this one remained unpublished or published only on blogs which no-one reads. Now, for the first time, they have been unearthed and published in e-book format for a new group of nobodies to never read. Regardless of any desire on part of the public for the New Weird Tales of Team Netherworld, this sort of writing is our true passion, and it shall remain confined to a dark dungeon no longer!
In years past, novelettes and novellas fell out of disfavor with readers. Now, with the advent of e-books, these forms are making a comeback, and we couldn’t be happier. We at Team Netherworld Creations can be a bit slow on the uptake, but we’ve finally realized that it means we can publish our work in smaller chunks rather than waiting until we have an entire novel put together. This means more chances to inflict our brand of Weirdness on the world, and we are chortling gleefully at the prospect.
If you happen to enjoy the insanity which we have inflicted upon your unsuspecting mind, you are now one of the Afflicted. Greetings, fellow Cultist! We welcome you!
