[Free eBook] The Coming of Cthugha by John Glasby [Lovecraftian Sci-Fi Mystery Horror]

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.

Offered worldwide, available at Amazon.
