S. T. Joshi's Antipodean Tour

Wonderful news for Antipodean lovers of the weird ... S. T. Joshi is en route now to Australia accompanied by Mary Krawczak Wilson, for his first tour in the Land Down Under.

Mr Joshi needs no introduction for many visitors to the P’rea Press’ website, but for those who may be new to the field of weird literature, his resume is extensive and substantial. He is a prominent writer, editor, and critic of weird literature, the leading authority on H. P. Lovecraft and on many other writers of the weird, as well as on authors such as H. L. Mencken, and on topics as diverse as atheism and prejudice.

For a quick and fascinating insight into the man, his day to day literary activities, and his astounding and prolific output over four decades, dip into his blog at http://stjoshi.org/news.html

Better still, buy his engrossing autobiography, What Is Anything: Memoirs of a Life in Lovecraft, or check out the bibliography of his first 200 works at Hippocampus Press:  https://www.hippocampuspress.com/?zenid=o1rqpr0n7unh3uirj7l5off9q3

Mr Joshi has been sponsored by the Eleutheria Society for a series of public engagements in Canberra (22 June), Melbourne (24 June), Hobart (26 June), and Sydney (28 June). Other performers include, in Canberra, Edward Neeman on piano and Eloise Fisher on clarinet performing Necronomicon by Australian composer, Larry Sitsky; local weird literature aficionados include Perry Grayson (Melbourne), and Leigh Blackmore (Canberra and Sydney).   

Tickets for S. T. Joshi’s Australian engagements, billed as Necronomicon Australis, are available from Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/necronomicon-australis-sydney-tickets-57554956424

Don’t miss out! These events are well worth attending for all lovers of the weird.

P’rea Press welcomes S. T. Joshi and Mary Krawczak Wilson to Australia and wishes them a truly splendid tour Down Under.
