Shadows over Avalon, a dark fantasy clash between the Cthulhu Mythos and Arthurian Legend, is now available!
Despite Merlin’s arts, the stars are right over Camelot.
When King Arthur pulled the sword from the stone, he established more than a nation. He established an ideal. Where righteousness and learning could thrive. Where valiant knights battled evil. Camelot, the incorruptible dream.
From beyond the stars and before time, something stirs. Spoken of in the Necronomicon, eldritch gods make their influence known. Awakened by loathsome constellations, they arise from sea-locked tombs and turn men’s minds from outer spheres. The Mythos, the corrupting nightmare.
The nightmare spreads. Troupes of actors travel the land in patronage to a king draped in yellow, monks turn their service to a god dreaming in the sea, and living storms stalk the winters. How knights such as Gawain, Percival, Ascamore, and Lancelot respond will save or damn all things.
Award-Winning Curator Nicole Petit is proud to present this collection. This is Petit’s second foray into Arthurian legend having previously curated After Avalon.
This volume features nine tales that combine Lovecraft and Camelot featuring: Dylan Freeman, Richard Sheppard, Josh Reynolds, Edward M. Erdelac, Simon Bucher-Jones, Ethan Sabatella, Timothy Williams, Tim Mendees, and Tim Hanlon.
Petit is excited that this collection is finally out for readers to enjoy.
“It was a pleasure to work with these authors on a project that involves two things near and dear to my heart: the Arthurian Legends and eldritch horror. I’m excited for everyone to read these stories, especially the tales featuring lesser-known Arthurian characters. This book wouldn’t be complete without characters like Merlin and Percival, and authors wrote some of my favorite takes on them—but I’m always excited to help shed a spotlight on wonderful characters like Sir Marrok the werewolf knight, Sir Ascamore who is given new life as an administrator, and Dinadan the prankster knight. The depth and conflicts of Arthurian characters bring their stories to life, and the authors have done a wonderful job continuing the tradition.”
