MIRAGE PUBLISHING HOUSE (2022)

The new Kindle in March 2022
“In other news, I published a new edition of D.F. Lewis’ book Weirdmonger through my own press Mirage Publishing House. It’s only available on kindle, but you can buy it here. This was a short story collection that had a heavy impact on me in college and really was a part of my foundational years as a young writer. I used to read his stories over and over, finding new meaning each time. Do yourself a favor and buy a copy.” — the Kindle’s publisher
One of the stories in ’Weirdmonger’ was recently showcased in THE BIG BOOK OF MODERN FANTASY
A few of the 67 stories in ’Weirdmonger’ were revised for ’A Dead Monument to Once Ancient Hope’ but the new ’Weirdmonger’ Kindle contains, of course, the original text. Having now re-read such originals, I sincerely think they wield a more direct power than the few later revisions do. Different versions optimal for different contexts.
The author received The Karl Edward Wagner Award in 1998 for services already rendered by then!
