The Coming of Cthugha by the late British author John Glasby is the 1st novel in his Dark Armageddon trilogy of Lovecraftian science fiction horror thrillers, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press’ Venture imprint.
This is one of their original publications, selected posthumously from the author’s extensive literary estate. The setting is based directly upon the extended Cthulhu mythos originated by the late H. P. Lovecraft, and the title character of Cthugha created by August Derleth sports a quote from one of Glasby’s own pulp fiction stories on its Wikipedia page.
The trilogy combines science fiction and horror with mystery and conspiracy thriller elements, as individuals are recruited into a plucky secret Organisation of intellectuals trying to prevent the stars coming right and unleashing eldritch abominations from the furthest depths of space and time upon the Earth. This story shows the recruitment of one such individual, a nephew looking into his uncle’s disappearance and unraveling the trail of clues sparked by examining an odd manuscript.

Horrors from Space…
Human history is not what we thought it was…
When Doctor Edmund Trevelyan goes missing in Cornwall, his nephew discovers a manuscript that poses more questions than it answers.
Charnwood House, a mysterious mansion and former residence of a colleague of the doctor, is the last place he was seen in person. Four years have passed, and still no news. Delving into the manuscript, the nephew unravels a cryptic maze of clues that are too strange to be true.
But they are…
What follows is a gripping science fiction mystery, as we learn of Trevelyan’s encounters with an intriguing archaeological site, a mysterious astrological observatory and a labyrinth of ancient cosmology.
Trevelyan must traverse the universe for more information to solve the mystery of human mythology, the origins of all of our legends and the truth behind everything we once thought to be mere fable.
But what is coming? Why is this so important to his colleague, Professor McKinrick?
Could it mean the end of the World as we know it?
Join with Trevelyan as he uncovers the secrets of history, of time travel and of the unknown roots of humanity buried deep beneath the Earth.
The Coming of Cthugha is a gripping science fiction mystery, told in the vein of the Lovecraftian Mythos. It is the first book of a trilogy.
