A tranquil English scene – but is it? Under the surface dark and terrible things are stirring. A serial killer is on the loose… The Dean is having guilty nightmares… A long dead Bishop of Morchester appears in his choir stall at evensong… A mysterious ring disappears from the cathedral museum… A famous composer is beginning his long descent into Hell…

Demiurge: The Complete Cthulhu Mythos Tales of Micheal Shea Edited by S. T. Joshi

Containing the complete Cthulhu Mythos tales of Michael Shea, this volume is edited by renowned weird fiction scholar S. T. Joshi and features original wraparound cover artwork by Aeron Alfrey.

“It is not at all surprising that the late Michael Shea was attracted to the work of H. P. Lovecraft, for both authors shared a fascination with myth, real or ersatz. Shea’s own writings draw upon myth and legend from as early as the Epic of Gilgamesh (c. 1700 B.C.E.), and his own vibrant Nifft the Lean novels evolve myths of their own while acknowledging debts to classical and Near Eastern myth (not to mention some tips of the hat to the historical sword-and-sorcery tales of Fritz Leiber). Lovecraft drew upon similar sources, as well as the mythmaking of the great Irish fantaisiste Lord Dunsany, to develop the Cthulhu Mythos as the quintessential expression of his notions of cosmic dread and human insignificance. But Michael Shea was anything but a pastichist; even when he was writing in novels or tales that avowedly imitated the work of others, his own dynamic originality kept bursting through—and the result is a series of works that, while drawing inspiration from prior texts, are infused with the distinctive vision of their creator.” – S. T. Joshi, Introduction to Demiurge: The Complete Cthulhu Mythos Tales of Michael Shea
