The Cthulhu Cult

A novel by

This is #1 in Arcane Wisdom's new Modern Mythos Series. Each title is hand picked and edited by Lovecraftian Scholar S. T. Joshi and award winning editor Larry L. Roberts as well as distributed by the dark fiction publisher, DarkFuse.

Having fled town under a cloud of salacious scandal, Shelby Tyree has returned, a mysterious woman at his side and a strange new devotion to horror writer H.P. Lovecraft in his head. His childhood friends Rick and Conrad scarcely recognize Shelby, who has been transformed from a rakish dilettante into a zealous guru devoted to his own pseudo-religion. They take it upon themselves to discover what Shelby is really up to. Why has he founded his own church, devoted to a presumably fictional demonic alien? Is it possible Shelby's lost his grip on reality or is somehow under the spell of this mysterious woman? Or is it possible that Shelby has uncovered some secret truths that man was not meant to know?

Cthulhu Cult is a brilliant and scintillating novel of Lovecraftian terror. It grips the reader from the first page and develops a tremendous cumulative power

"Anyone who has the least interest in H. P. Lovecraft's work will find Cthulhu Cult a must-read." - S. T. Joshi
