…belongs to the bookshelf of everyone who is fascinated by Lovecraftian weird fiction. It’s one of the best weird fiction collections of the year and deserves to be read by ardent and enthusiastic fans of the genre. Weird fiction doesn’t get more entertaining than this, so please invest a bit of time into reading this marvellous collection. Highly recommended!

Coming your way this September: The Private Life of Elder Things by Adrian Tchaikovsky, Adam Gauntlett and Keris McDonald is launched at FantasyCon 2016.

From the wastes of the sea to the shadows of our own cities, we are not alone. But what happens where the human world touches the domain of races ancient and alien?

Museum curators, surveyors, police officers, archaeologists, mathematicians; from derelict buildings to country houses to the London Underground, another world is just a breath away, around the corner, watching and waiting for you to step into its power.

The Private Life of Elder Things is a collection of new Lovecraftian fiction about confronting, discovering and living alongside the creatures of the Mythos.

  • A terrible secret beneath Paddington Station that is about to turn the Circle line into a Shoggoth trap
  • An old archaeologist haunted all her life by a death she caused, and the shadowy creature she invoked to do it.
  • A string of terrible deaths associated with lurid graffiti of a hound
  • A lost mariner in a strange Sargasso where the ships are picked clean of humans by strange slave-takers.
  • A new “legal high” from a machine that opens the mind to another world, and makes users visible to those creatures
  • A visitor to a country house charged with finding its lost rooms
  • A gifted mathematician’s apparently flawed theories attract the attention of beings to whom her numbers make perfect sense.

The Private Life of Elder Things will be available via Amazon and other online bookshops in print and eBook formats.
