Recommended Posts

The Shadow on the Glass

Out Now! The Shadow on the Glass is the first release in the partnership between Aconyte Books, the fiction imprint of global games group Asmodee, and Chaosium to create and publish brand new novels in our Cthulhu by Gaslight setting for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game.

London, 1891. Elizabeth Whittle and William Grant enjoy scalping London’s bourgeoisie, taking on the personas of grand spiritist Cerulia Trent and her agent to connect the living and the dead. When a detective arrives, sniffing out fraud with a scientifically minded spiritualist society, the duo decides to take one last job before escaping to the continent. However, their final séance ends horrifically… and soon Lizzie isn’t Lizzie anymore. William, desperate to banish whatever monster they summoned, is soon embroiled in an electrifying eldritch mystery where he makes a deal with the devil to save his friend and stop an even greater evil from transforming the known world.

Written by Jonathan Howard, The Shadow on the Glass is available now in paperback*, e-book, audiobook, and at DriveThruFiction.

*UK paperback release is September 26th 2024.

Anyone read this yet? I'm wondering if it's in the vein of a traditional CoC story (ie regular people slowly devolve into insanity and death as they accidentally stop the cosmic horror or not) or a more pulp/"arkham horror" style story (where hero-like characters fight against a cosmic menace and succeed). 

I generally prefer the later for novels and was wondering if I should pick this up...
