Four Heart-Pounding Pulp Adventures for Trail of Cthulhu.
Strolling Arkham's fog-veiled streets¸ you stumble across a humble antiquarian bookshop you've never before noticed. Driven by the febrile compulsions of the committed bibliophile¸ you slip inside. Soon you find yourself in its ill-lit basement¸ the stench of rotting paper assailing your nostrils. Ducking down¸ your fingers lunge for a cardboard box filled with curled¸ yellow-edged old magazines.
The lurid covers assault your senses! Can it be? Though you consider yourself an expert on the pulp magazines of the thirties¸ these titles are oddly unfamiliar to you. You scan the cover stories—each is an exemplar of its time¸ yet infused by a distinctly Lovecraftian sensibility.
Devourers In the Mist: A rugged adventure tale in which the survival of island castaways is tested not only by the elements — but by the twisted shapes of half-seen¸ sadistic entities who haunt the atoll's jungled interior!
Shanghai Bullets: Guns-blazing danger portends and international intrigue unfurls in the city of conspiracy¸ the licentious¸ opium-infused Berlin of the East. In the shadow struggle between nations¸ no weapon is more fiercely coveted than the star mirror. It brings blood-draining death from beyond the stars! Death Laughs Last: When philanthropist and gadabout Addison Bright is found bizarrely murdered in his own New York mansion¸ only a team of doughty investigators can protect his reputation—and the sanity of mankind—from the awful truths lurking in his tragically colourful past.
Dimension Y: A scientific experiment yields the promise of a glimpse into an adjoining reality¸ a repository of man's dreams and memories. But when the heroes peer through this window... they find cosmic horror peering back at them!
A bang resounds above your head — the basement door slamming shut. You're trapped in the crypt of impossible pulps! But before you meet your deserved fate¸ you can take your final pleasures in this collection of exciting pulp-style scenarios for Trail Of Cthulhu¸ the GUMSHOE game of Lovecraftian investigative horror.
