Carter & Lovecraft by Jonathan L. Howard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What a cool surprise!
Modern sensibilities, Cthulhu Mythos, Urban Fantasy, Cthulhu Mythos, and even enough modern references and even math geekiness and Cthulhu Mythos to satisfy the most jaded INVESTIGATOR. :)
Nom nom nom nom...
Oh, wait, this isn't the RPG game! This is a new and theoretically ongoing series! How awesome is that? AND this duo might be gracing the tube, too? Yeah. This sharp tale pulls all the greatest story developments and classic build-ups of the Cthulhu Mythos with its lobster boil, from "normal" mysteries all the way to weird coincidences to unreal possibilities to modern versions of cultists to universe-hopping... while all the while remaining both true and smart to the originals and the ever-evolving sub-genre of Cthulhu.
As an urban fantasy mystery thriller. :)
I'm thrilled! :)
It doesn't lack much but a lot more can be introduced in later grimoires... um, I mean tomes? Oh, wait... I mean novels. yeah. novels. :)
Now, where does this one get categorized if it refers to itself in its own a self-indexing catalog?
Oh stop it, don't divide by zero!
*wild cackles of glee*
