The Lost Citadel is a shared-world horror fantasy edited and developed by C.A. Suleiman, based on an idea he conceived with his longtime collaborator, fantasy and horror novelist Ari Marmell. The first project in the world of the Lost Citadel is an anthology of short stories called Tales of the Lost Citadel, featuring some of the most acclaimed voices in fantasy and horror fiction, but the idea of the Lost Citadel is more ambitious in scope than a single collection of words.
With this setting, we’re trying to re-define the idea of what it means to «share» a fantasy world, to have different voices and talents come together to build, express, and explore a world with a particular set of themes and aesthetics. We’re working with writers, yes, but also fine artists, musicians, graphic designers, cartographers, and more; anyone whose gifts might help flesh out and embolden the world of the Lost Citadel.
