The Lovecraft eZine is a monthly online magazine (also known as an ezine) devoted to Lovecraftian horror.

In addition to the monthly magazine, Mike Davis, the editor of the Lovecraft eZine blogs about all things Lovecraft several times a week. Starting with issues 11 the Lovecraft eZine also features an art section, featuring different artists each issue.

A video chat is being held (and hosted by the Lovecraft eZine) on Google Hangout every Sunday at 6:00pm EST (3pm PST, 5pm CST, 11pm London). Some chats have special guests such as Lovecraftian authors, editors, and publishers, and some chats are open to everyone who would like to chime in.

The main goal of The Lovecraft eZine "is and always will be to publish free quality Lovecraftian fiction — fiction that is every bit as good as print Lovecraftian anthologies. Quite a few well-known writers have been published here, but [they] also accept submissions from first-time writers. It’s all about the quality of the writing and the submission guidelines."

Blurbs, recommendations and feedback

"If you’re a fan of Lovecraftian horror, the Lovecraft eZine is worth checking out. The blog’s main page is packed full of interesting Lovecraft-related links, photos, and articles. However, the site’s main appeal is the free, monthly eZine itself which contains a nice selection of Lovecraft-inspired horror stories written by both established and aspiring authors." / Geek dad

"Along with being a new, prolific, and well-run website, Lovecraft Zine is also a place that publishes I enjoy reading and, moreover, might be a place for myslef, or anyone else who loves the dark and macabre, to publish in the future." Lovecraft eZine: A Magazine Report by Greg Rozen

"Horror fans and Lovecraft afficionados have been darkly singing the praises of LOVECRAFT eZINE. Editor/founder Mike Davis and Crew offer monthly chills and thrills that “share the tone and themes of Lovecraft.” That is, cosmic fear, or simply “weird fiction” if you prefer. Within that spectrum there is a vast array of possibilities for horror, dark fantasy, and beyond. Some of the zine’s current best include tales by horrormeister Wilum Pugmire, an Old School Gent when it comes to all things Lovecraftian, as well as stories by Joseph S. Pulver and David J. West." Lovecraft eZine: Keeping it weird by John R. Fultz

"There are many other perhaps lesser known authors who take things a step further, writing new stories that actually take place within the “Lovecraftian universe. A prime example of this is the Lovecraft eZine, a monthly online publication that features short stories that share themes of cosmic horror, the discovered knowledge of unnameable, terrible things – and maybe even a Shoggoth or two."
