About this book
A New Lovecraftian collection by Tony Richards!
AN AWARD-SHORTLISTED AUTHOR TAKES YOU ON A TERRIFYING, STARTLING TOUR OF LOVECRAFT COUNTRY
And they are all here … the Great Old Ones, the Deep Ones, Dagon, Gol-goroth and the Shoggoth, half-human mutants, horrific marine beasts and all the other chilling denizens of the Cthulhu Mythos, brought to life again in one story and four short novels.
The Death of Vanessa Fell
A wealthy publisher heads north to help console a grieving friend from college days, little knowing he is on a journey out beyond the very gates of Death, into a realm occupied by ancient beings and cruel gods, where madness, terror and betrayal reign.
The Darkness in the Harbour
An infantry captain from the First World War finds himself marooned while traveling through the Far East, abandoned on a tramp steamer that lies moored in the waters off Hong Kong. Except he soon suspects that he is not alone, and his investigations lead him to a tragic tale of loss and to a truth far deadlier than any he has known before.
The Orphanage at Trellaree
In a sleepy little Irish coastal town, a huge dark building – the Menningdale Orphanage – hangs above the rooftops like some threatening cloud. And when the newly-arrived local doctor tries to find out more about the place, he finds himself plunged into a world where human beings have no place and timeless forces are at work.
The Shadow Out of London
In the near-future, that great capital city lies in ruins and is viewed with dread. But when two neighbors start to realize that a new danger has sprung up in the place, they set off to confront it, never once guessing at the true appalling nature of the horror that has now arisen there.
…and then there is THE HOWLING TERROR.
