The frozen continent of Antarctica still harbors mysteries, slowly being revealed by intrepid scientists and by melting ice caps. The stories in this new collection offer more revelations still, as our frostbitten authors chip away at the legacy bequeathed by H.P. Lovecraft in his historic novella At the Mountains of Madness. Lovecraft's epic is itself a continent teeming with lurking fears and horrors unknown. What mysterious entities did his star-headed crinoids serve? What genetic secrets gestated within the shifting masses of the unholy shoggoths? Can a mere human fathom or describe the thought patterns of such creatures? If the Elder Things survived, what further nefarious mischief might they have spread? Had there been other, earlier or later expeditions to the Lovecraftian tundra? Did the cyclopean metropolis of the Old Ones exist in this or some other dimension? Could there be unsuspected links between the Miskatonic Expedition and characters or events in other Lovecraft tales? What if The Twilight Zone had adapted At the Mountains of Madness for television?
These are some of the icy secrets thawed out for our inspection by a team of parka-clad authors including Stephen Mark Rainey, Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., Will Murray, Cody Goodfellow, Ken Asamatsu, C.J. Henderson, Edward Morris, Glynn Owen Barrass, Laurence J. Cornford, Pete Rawlik, Brian Sammons, and Pierre Comtois. These are guaranteed to be chilling tales in more ways than one!
All right, we're all disappointed by the cancellation of Giermo del Toro's eagerly anticipated big-screen adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness, but this excellent collection ought to soften that blow!
