Byron Craft's Books
THE ARKHAM DETECTIVE series is complete with four titles and can be found as a collection or individually in both softcover and Kindle versions:
In The Dunwich Dungeon, the final book in the series, a seven-foot tall man in black has caused the Detective's good friend to go missing; a woman is brutally murdered in a museum, and mysterious artifacts lead us on a trail to inter-dimensional horrors.
This time the Arkham Detective is armed to the teeth, and determined to avenge murder with mayhem.
The Devil Came to Arkham is the third installment in a four-part series about a hard-boiled police detective who is in charge of the Mythos Division.
In “The Devil Came to Arkham” the Great Depression is still in full swing and the economy and the dregs of the community have taken a toll on the not-so-fair city of Arkham. To top it all off, a strange and eerie fellow by the name of Corvus Astaroth has taken up residence and the masses are falling deathly ill. Coincidence? It is up to our Detective with No Name to solve the mystery and save his hometown, including those he calls family.
The Innsmouth Look Is the second book in the ARKHAM DETECTIVE series.
The Arkham Detective returns to investigate a murder and the kidnapping of a small child. The trail leads to Innsmouth by the sea, where the mystery unfolds with the frightful creatures that lurk there and the discovery of what they intend to call up from beneath. A true Lovecraftian tale.

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.
“Cthulhu’s Minions” takes place in an alternate universe somewhat like the 1930’s when H.P. Lovecraft was writing his Cthulhu Mythos and writers like Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler were creating the hard-boiled mystery drama. Indeed, it is as if we are being treated to a Dashiell Hammett meets H.P. Lovecraft collaboration. The protagonist of the tale is the Detective with No Name. He is a case-hardened police officer that does not believe in things that go bump in the night, until…
"Cthulhu's Minions is a novelette and provides a fun quick read and a chance to get the feel of how Byron Craft spins his tales."
