Tales From Arkham Sanitarium

At last! Dark Regions Press has released the hardback edition of Tales From Arkham Sanitarium, which features my story, “Clicks,” a tale of Lovecraftian madness and horror.

“There are things man was not meant to know and knowledge that burns those that learn it. Knowing too much, getting a glimpse of the truth behind the curtain we call reality, casting aside the bliss of ignorance and succumbing to the insanity that follows in the pursuit of damnable truths, is at the core of many of the stories of the Cthulhu Mythos. Insanity is central to Lovecraftian horror, so there is no wonder that a cathedral devoted to mending broken minds was raised: Arkham Sanitarium. Where the screams and cries of the damned are commonplace. Where those that have seen the faces of cosmic entities gibber with regret over their curiosity. Where men and women are cosigned to never ending purgatory for knowing too much. The machinations of the Old Ones are beyond the mental capacity of mankind, and these are the tales of those who learned that too late.”
