SHOGGOTH is Craft's second novel in a planned five part mythos series.
An accepted theory exists that millions of years ago a celestial catastrophic occurrence wiped out every living thing on the planet.
This theory may be flawed.
Fast-forward to the 21st century. A handful of scientists, allied with the military, discover a massive network of tunnels beneath the Mojave Desert. Below, lies an ancient survivor, waiting . . . and it's hungry!
Once again, Byron Craft drags us by his tentacles into a masterful mix of Lovecraftian science fiction, mystery, fantasy and horror.
Craft started writing about his “detective with no name” just to clear some ideas out of his head and ended up with a complete series plan. THE ARKHAM DETECTIVE is a unique fusing of the Lovecraft Cthulhu Mythos with the hard-boiled detective genre.
The first release in the ARKHAM DETECTIVE series was “Cthulhu's Minions,” a novelette that provides a fun quick read and a chance to get the feel of how Byron Craft spins his tales. Cthulhu’s Minions, in this story, are Pilot Demons. Craft tells us that “they originally came into being in my novel ‘The Cry of Cthulhu,’ based on my screenplay by the same title. They are creepy little things that became such great supporting characters (in a terrible sort of way) that I thought that they deserved their own separate story.”
Released in 2016, “The Innsmouth Look,” is the second story in the series that brings the detective back, investigating a murder and the kidnapping of a small child, which leads to Innsmouth by the sea, the frightful creatures that lurk there, and what they plan to call up from the depths.
"The Devil Came to Arkham," Book 3 in the 4 part series is AVAILABLE NOW in Kindle @ Amazon.com
Enjoy discovering Craft’s trademark contribution to the Cthulhu Mythos while blending a Dashiell Hammet and Raymond Chandler style of action and mystery.
