Y’Know, for Squids….*

Howard Lovecraft and the Undersea Kingdom by Bruce Brown

Howard Lovecraft and the Undersea Kingdom by Bruce Brown

It’s H P Lovecraft’s deathday today (how morbid) and it seems like a pity not to end the day with a look at his legacy. Yes, you guessed it. Children’s books. This is definitely going on the Christmas list. The artwork looks pretty sweet, too. Hard to believe that this is a real thing. Fantastic! Certainly better than that nasty ‘Go the f**k to sleep’ book released ‘for adults’ last year. Sheesh.

Here’s a brief description: Howard Lovecraft and the Undersea Kingdom:

Howard Lovecraft’s family has been imprisoned on a far-flung alien planet, and Spot”s hopelessly captured, slowly becoming a mindless Fishman. Accompanied by his insane father, a pistol-packing constable, and his hungry cat, they must face the all-powerful ruler of the Outer Gods, a vengeful ancient enemy, an army of deadly monsters, and a lethal world called Yuggoth to save the day. All Howard has to do is surrender his father’s Book. But that would mean certain doom for all of mankind!

It’s had to resist that kind of scenario. If anyone has read it, please leave a comment below and tell the Eyeball if this is worth shelling out a few squids for.
