Arkham Shadows
The World of H P Lovecraft

Moreover, there broods eternally about this country an undeniable atmosphere not alone of age and desertion, but also of evil. There are areas of woodland in which no axe has fallen, as well as dark, vinegrown glens, where brooks trickle in a darkness unbroken by sunlight even on the brightest day… It is not a country in which to linger overlong, and certainly not a place in which to be found at night.

Great Cthulhu

I myself have plunged into the dark world of the Great Old Ones, have walked the shadow haunted streets of Arkham, have tarried many nights amidst the crumbling structures of seaside Innsmouth, have walked the haunted woods near Dunwich, and have walked in the footsteps of the Mad Arab, Abdul Alhazred. Come with me into the realm of darkness known as the "Cthulhu Mythos" for these tales are tales of my own, tales of my experiences!

"In the course of one night that is one year, blood shall flow and the face of the world shall be veiled in red. Thus, under darkening skies, the Old One shall stand affront the Monk, and before the first light of the sun has shone upon the new year, the world shall be forever changed…"

Need I say more about Under Darkening Skies?

The Herb & Scott series
(I'll eventually have something more to say about this...yes, eventually)

...H'chtelegoth & Others...

* * * * *

Set in Great Britain, one incarnation of H’chtelegoth was a teleplay that I wrote based on the novella co-written by myself and Samuel H Milligan. Unfortunately, no one was interested in it. So, thought I’d include it here for the fun of it…

...H'chtelegoth - the teleplay...

In Columbiana County, Ohio, there is an old abandoned ruin of a house that sits deep in the woods on a hill above Church Hill Road. Do not go near it if you value you sanity or your life...

...The Horror From the Well...

There's always something fishy going on at Innsmouth. If you should ever go there, be careful the townsfolk don't induce your wife or girlfriend to take you on a "one-way" swim to Devil Reef! And for you ladies, what it is you see in those fish things is beyond me!

...Innsmouth Harvest...

There's something to be said for being an old goat, especially if the goat in question is a monstrously huge black ugly thing named Shub-Niggurath that roars & stomps through the woods looking for delicious human morsels for its "thousand young"!

...Tommy's Goat...

* * * * *

In southwest Columbiana County there is an old house in the woods. An ordinary house, really, but a not so ordinary family occupies the house. And those with whom this family, the Wilkins, associate are far from ordinary - as Eric Cantrell found out.

Ah, yes, you write stories, & are consistently getting them rejected? There are ways to get even - with the right connections, of course!

One by one, members of the "Celaeno Project" are disappearing. The only clue is a mysterious parchment left behind with each disappearance. What does the parchment mean? The Circle of Nyarlathotep takes us from Columbiana County, Ohio to ruins in the desert sands of Ancient Egypt where the answer to the mysterious parchment lies waiting to be discovered.

...The Circle Of Nyarlathotep...

And just what is a "Black Horror", you may ask?? Why one of those big puss ball slimy shoggoths, of course! They're everywhere! Even just outside Dungannon, Ohio!

...The Black Horror...

Just what did happen down by Dungannon?? Here are excerpts from Ray Carson's journal.

...The Black Horror: An Appendix...

Okay, I got a thing about maps! I collect them, like I collect books. But my book collection far outnumbers my map collection. So, why the maps here?? These are just parts of a Columbiana County, Ohio map I have. They are intended as a sort of "guided tour" to where some of my stories take place. It’s a habit of mine, that mental image of where the action happens. Like putting a face with a voice. In this case, putting a location with the action.


A Mythos Film

Is it feasible?
I've got an idea for a screenplay.

To all you Mythos fans out there, I am interested in feedback from you on the feasibility of a "Cthulhu Mythos" screenplay. Having written screenplays of other genre, and also having written a teleplay based on the "Cthulhu Mythos" entitled H'chtelegoth, I've always entertained the idea of writing a "Cthulhu Mythos" screenplay.

As we all know, there have been many "supposed" adaptations, and many films loosely based on the work of H P Lovecraft. So, considering the film industry today, what do you think? Are they ready for another film based on the "Cthulhu Mythos"? Would appreciate you opinions!

Drop me an email and let me know what you think!
