Cthulhu A Love Story: from JC Rudkin.

Cover of Cthulhu a Love Story

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

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.
