Australian horror author Shane Jiraiya Cummings' lovecraftian novella, Requiem for the Burning God
, is free at Amazon.
Evil festers beneath the mountains of Peru, and British Great War ace turned mercenary Captain Max Calder unwittingly stumbles into the thick of it! Confronted by Lovecraftian horrors, the machinations of a world-spanning conglomerate, and a lunatic song that haunts his every step, Calder may pay the ultimate price to save the world from danger. Requiem for the Burning God is a grand pulp adventure novella inspired by the darkest imaginings of the Cthulhu Mythos.
"A fantastic blend of pulp adventure and Lovecraftian horror. Shane Jiraiya Cummings delivers a cracking tale and proves he is still one of Australia's leading voices in dark fantasy fiction."
--David Conyers, author of The Spiraling Worm
"Like the stories of Robert E. Howard and L. Ron Hubbard before it, Requiem for the Burning God reminds us great pulp fiction is very much alive and waiting to thrill us all over again!"
--Benjamin Kane Ethridge, author of Black & Orange
"A story of epic scope and grand pulp-style adventure, with everything from flesh-eating ooze to biplanes dogfighting zeppelins ... it is the sort of story that I wish my role-playing sessions ran like!"
--Andrew J. McKiernan, HorrorScope
