Tales of Mythos Noir

by Glynn Owen Barrass and Ron Shiflet

Book Image Not Available
Overview
The Cthulhu Mythos has always been home to investigators, those brave men and women pursuing its mysteries and horrors while trying to save humanity, and their own hides, from madness and death. The classic, Hard-Boiled Private Investigator, struggling with his own inner demons, has to fight to keep unimaginable evils at bay armed with a gun, violence, and a bottle of liquor to ease the pain. Hard-Boiled detectives and the Cthulhu Mythos were made for each other, and the talented team of Barrass and Shiflet offer a brilliant fusion of Mythos and Hard-Boiled Noir detective fiction, in the vein of Lovecraft’s classic “The Horror at Red Hook” and C.J. Henderson’s “You Can’t Take it with You.” In these eight stories, detectives Barnes and Towers, with the help of fisticuffs, shot glasses and dames, take on together the terrors of H.P. Lovecraft’s nightmares. Here you will meet old Cthulhu Mythos antagonists in new, deadly situations, spend time travelling through Innsmouth, Dunwich and Arkham, visit alien dimensions, and much, much more!
