STAINLESS STEEL SARCOPHAGUS: Tales Of Lovecraftian Fantasy & Horror
by Mark McLaughlin & Michael Sheehan, Jr. FREE on Kindle Unlimited:
STAINLESS STEEL SARCOPHAGUS presents seven Cthulhu Mythos tales of horror and dark fantasy. In the title story, a work of modern art known as the Stainless Steel Sarcophagus unleashes a grotesque ancient Egyptian menace upon the employees of a luxury department store.
Several tales in this collection concern beings from the Lovecraftian Dreamlands and their disturbing interactions with the waking world. In “The House Of The Ocelot,” a curious barista enters a strange building in his neighborhood and encounters a hidden race of cat-creatures.
“The Dollmaker’s Vengeance” tells of a witch who uses a threat from the waking world to gain power in the Dreamlands. In “Queen Of The Vultures,” two magic gentlemen from the Dreamlands seek the Egyptian vulture-goddess Nekhbet, who hides in plain sight in an urban community. Three more stories present eldritch parodies, including the tale of a hideous atrocity who goes to work as a movie monster.
