When Cthulhu Met Atlach-Nacha

I'm very excited to announce the release of my stage play, When Cthulhu Met Atlach-Nacha. It's definitely one of my favorite things that I've written. I'm a big fan of cosmic horror, and it's very faithful to Lovecraftian mythos, especially for a domestic comedy. But at readings, people said they enjoyed it even when they didn't know anything about Lovecraft, or even horror.

For $0.99, I hope you'll give it a try.

Da blurb:

He's an academic; she's an artist.

He worships Cthulhu, the slumbering behemoth; she worships Atlach-Nacha, the spider goddess of dreams.

Their interfaith marriage is challenging enough before the gods themselves arise and do battle. Can this couple hold their relationship together during the end of times?

Through the use of both horror and domestic comedy, When Cthulhu Met Atlach-Nacha examines the audacity and beauty of declaring a permanent relationship in a chaotic world.

When Cthulhu Met Atlach-Nacha is a one-act play with a run time of just under one hour.

Caveat about Smashwords: the mobi file has weird indentation. My guess is that the epub does, too. I think I know what's causing it, so it should be fixed by the end of the week. The other formats look fine, though. It all would if they'd give us the option of uploading html.


  1. That certainly sounds great... Give us Brits a break and put an Amazon UK link up as well though. I had to click an extra three times with my weedy limey wrists to find it.

    Have you read the Neil Gaiman story which is a Cthulhu mythos story told in the style of Peter Cook & Dudley Moore?

  2. For you James, I'm gonna do it. Even on the side column, and for the other books, too. You have struck a mighty blow for your peoples!

    I haven't read that story, but it sounds funny. Lovecraft took himself so seriously that he's like an eternal comedy straight man. The only non-comic book Gaiman I've read is American Gods.

  3. Wow, I've actually achieved something in this world then...

    The story is in Smoke And Mirrors, if you're interested. Heartedly recommended.

  4. I bought it yesterday. Looking forward to reading it. It just sounds so... weird! (And that's a compliment.)

  5. I so rarely get UK sales that yesterday I checked my stats and said, "Okay, James bought it," and then this morning checked my stats and said, "And now Shea's bought it."

    I'm excited to hear what you think!

  6. I did post a reply to you yesterday, but it seems to have been lost in the general Blogger cull.

    Rest assured, it was a particularly erudite and witty comment.

  7. I've read it. You mental bastard, you actually pulled it off. Good stuff.

  8. Thank you!

    I'm in the middle of reading your short story collection right now and I'm really enjoying it.
