Welcome Ari Marmell!

When Ari Marmell has free time left over between feeding cats and posting on social media, he writes a little bit. His work includes novels, short stories, role-playing games, and video games, all of which he enjoyed in lieu of school work when growing up. He’s the author of the Mick Oberon gangland/urban fantasy series, the Widdershins YA fantasy series, and many others, with publishers such as Del Rey, Titan Books, Pyr Books, Wizards of the Coast, and now Omnium Gatherum.

Ari currently resides in Austin, Texas. He lives in a clutter that has a moderate amount of apartment in it, along with George—his wife—and the aforementioned cats, who probably want something.

You can find Ari online, if you’re not careful.

Ladies and gentlemen, your attention please! Let me introduce tonight’s guest of honor, none other than the big guy himself… the big poppa, the never-gonna-stoppa, the cream that rose to the toppa… give it up for YOUR! PROPHIT! KING! With his golden staff, Prophit King runs the Nation, keeps you safe from traitors, and presides over that greatest of sports: Cruce!

Molly Most is the Crucecaster from G-1 whose star is on the rise. She’s on her way to being the greatest Crucecaster the world has ever seen. Molly isn’t looking for trouble, but trouble finds her when she catches Prophit King’s eye. Telling him “no” isn’t an option, but an ally might be buzzing in her ear.

The Fog of War lifts, crucibles are revealed, and two teams of Roosters clash in a brutal melee. It’s the greatest sport the world has ever known, and this time the stakes could not be higher. Staple your eyes open, and set up permanent residence on the edge of your seat for a Cruce Championship to annihilate all championships!

Fortune: Lost and Found

Cover Fortune: Lost and FoundCapital, cash, gold, lucre — money makes the world go round. But fortunes easily gained are often painfully lost. Since the very first king pressed his face onto the very first coin no single thing has led so many to ruin. Fortune, it seems, has a dark side and a wickedly evil sense of humor. Curses, plagues and misfortunes rain down on those who dare to tip the scales in their own favor. Fortunes, Lost and Found edited by L.S. Murphy and Kate Jonez is a collection of tales about  money and wealth and the potentially horrifying consequences of gaining or losing it. Stories of cursed Pharaoh's tombs, haunted pirate ships, rare and valuable trinkets found in forgotten places are examples of the type of story we’d like to see. But acquiring a fortune, much like making a deal with the devil, is tricky business often with unexpected consequences. Surprise us with your stories. Submit horror / dark fantasy stories between 2,000 and 5,000 words in .doc format to fortuneanthology@omniumgatherumedia.com. The deadline is May 30th 2012. We'll consider reprints, but please mention where and when the story first appeared in the cover letter. Payment will be made 6 months from publication. Each contributor will receive an equal portion of royalties earned during the 6 month period and one paperback copy of the anthology.

The Detritus Anthology is Here!!! Happy Friday the 13th

Cover for DetritusThe impulse to collect springs from deep within the human psyche Squirrels gather acorns, rats collect shiny things, but only humans assign meaning to the objects they collect. Detritus is a collection of stories about the impulse to collect, preserve, and display gone horribly wrong. Kate Jonez and S.S. Michaels have assembled a diverse range of exceptionally disturbing stories from authors from around the world. Each of the stories, whether about a collection that is world changing or intensely personal, is sure to linger in readers’ thoughts and make them consider the possibility that malice and evil just might lurk in their own hoard of stuff.

Featuring: Kealan Patrick Burke, Jeremy C, Shipp, Mary Borsellino, Brent Michael Kelley, Phil Hickes, L.S. Murphy, Michael R. Colangelo, Neil Davies, Louise Bohmer, Edmund Colell, S.P. Miskowski, Michael Montoure, Lee Widener, Pete Clark, and Opal Edgar

Welcome New Omnium Gatherum Author Ennis Drake!

  Ennis Drake weeps for the loss of "The American Sensibility". He gives witness to the shadows that haunt the periphery of our waking life; half-glimpsed antagonists born of a culture of rightful fear. He carries this blackness with him always, exorcising it onto the white of the page as often and as fast as he can. But, as Fate delights in, the collective fears of a collective consciousness are an inexhaustible cancer.

Ennis's short fiction has appeared in various publications online and in print, including: "Love: The Breath of Eagleray", at Underland Press (publisher of Jeff VanderMeer's "Finch", John Shirley’s “In Extremis”, and Kealan Patrick Burke's "The Living"); "The Dark That Keeps Her", published in Twisted Legends, an anthology from Pill Hill Press (honorably mentioned in Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Year, Vol. 2); and most recently, "The Fishing of Dahlia", published in the Bram Stoker-nominated and Black Quill Award winning +Horror Library+ Volume 4. "The Fishing of Dahlia" also received an honorable mention in Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Year, Vol. 3.

Ennis lives in Florida, where the sub-tropical climate exacerbates his psychosis (but, you know, the beaches are nice, the beer is cold and the stiffer drinks come with an umbrella).

His novel 28 Teeth of Rage will be released in 2012
