Oof I was in the group when that Dunham thing was being planned and dropped out early when the intent was announced. Why would writers waste time interpreting something they hate? Same with that James Bond 'deconstructionist' antho Chizine put out....bleh. chizinepub.com/books/license-expired
April Moon, who put out a pretty good (if I do say so myself) collection called Dark Rites Of Cthulhu, is putting out a series in response to THAT book called Bond: Unknown, the first of which will feature two novels from myself and William Miekle pitting Bond against the Lovecraftian Mythos. www.aprilmoonbooks.com/
Dark Rites of Cthulhu is a fine anthology. Sammons is a good editor.
Glad to hear you bailed on Dunham. I, also, don't understand giving that much negative energy to something. I'd rather write something promoting what I like.
The fact that you and Meikle (both REH fans) are contributing to the "Mythos Bond" series is enough for me. Plenty of room in the original Fleming for that sort of thing. Steve Tompkins (RIP) noted the same "hard boiled" worldview in Bond that others have done in relation to Conan and Hammett.

In this week’s episode I’ll be discussing “The Affair of the Cuckolded Warlock” by H. Warner Munn. It’s a short story that appeared as a chapbook in 1975 from The Lanthorne Press. Munn was a member of the Lovecraft Circle and a reference to ghouls places this within the Cthulhu Mythos. He also became friends with W. H. Pugmire later in life.
It’s told in the first person narrative style, from the viewpoint of a professor at the University of Chorazim, and is being told as a cautionary tale to group of graduates. The University of Chorazim specializes in the education of witches and wizards. The professor tells them about how a gifted warlock went astray.
