Cthulhu Thursday: Dreaming in Darkness

What's that you've got there, Cthulhu? Come on, boy, what is it?

A hardback copy of Dreaming in Darkness, you say? Why, that's a rare find and no mistake.

And what's that you've found? A story by me in there?

Why yes, I did write a novella called The Serpent's Egg that saw print back in 2013 in Dreaming in Darkness, but I hadn't actually seen a physical copy of the book until last weekend, when Adrian Chamberlin kindly gave me one at the Shakespeare Vs Cthulhu book launch. I believe there are only about 50 in existence.

So there you go...

One Amazon reviewer on The Serpent's Egg:

"With particularly strong resemblances to the likes of 'The Wicker Man' (1973) or indeed 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth' (1936), Green's story gradually builds upon a worrying layer of mistrust with the community in which his narrator is staying. And it's from this small nugget of an idea that the tale snowballs into a tension rich occult story; unveiling a veritable avalanche of horror and Lovecraftian weirdness in the last few chapters to end the tale on a tremendous action-packed finale."
