Edited Joseph S. Pulver Sr. needs little introduction: in recent years he's attracted critcal acclaim-- and both nominations and awards for the anthologies A Season in Carcosa, The Grimscribe's Puppets, and Cassilda's Song, among others. Author of numerous collections and novels himself, Joe's a true connoisseur of the weird, the dark, and the icky.
