Today, a new addition that pays tribute to and builds on the Lovecraftian universe, written by husband and wife team Jim and Cassey Rudkin.
But first, a brief explanation for those who are not up to date on their H.P. Lovecraft. Cthulhu was introduced in 1928 with The Call of Cthulhu. A supernatural being, Cthulhu has a head like an octopus with multiple tentacles around his mouth; his figure is somewhat human, but he has significant claws for hands and feet, and a basic set of wings.
How can one not be curious about a love story built around such a creature? No spoilers here, however! If you want to experience a romance-fantasy than you’ll want to check this out. It’s available through Barnes & Noble (https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/cthulhu-jc-rudkin/1139691610?ean=9780578936352
and Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Cthulhu-Love-Story-JC-Rudkin-ebook/dp/B09GL5HC2Z/ref=sr_1_1?crid=TS0P72OASGTU&keywords=jc+rudkin&qid=1645654328&sprefix=jc+rudkin%2Caps%2C418&sr=8-1
Some love now for this writing couple.
Their writing backgrounds include not just fantasy and romance, but also horror, and technical communication (not always the same – horror and tech comm – just sometimes an overlap.) They have an insightful interview with the Great Lakes Horror Writers Association from the Summer of 2021: http://glahw.com/friends-of-glahw-jc-rudkin/
Current projects include both a sequel to Cthulhu and a horror story. Updates will be featured here when available.
I personally will be following JC Rudkin’s writing and look forward to more from this dynamic writing duo; I’ve ordered a paperback to go with my e-book of Cthulhu, because I needed something for them to sign.
