Swords Against Cthulhu: A New Dark Age - Poetry (Go to Fiction)
Horrified Press

Sword and sorcery in the aeon of Cthulhu Rising!

The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

So saith Lovecraft.

Picture a future Earth, a savage world where science has been jettisoned in favour of primitive superstition, where technology has become the idol of a new religion. A world where the truth of Cthulhu has been revealed, where a lunatic humanity has learnt its true insignificance—the punchline in a cosmic joke. A new dark age has descended upon a world that has learnt too much. Science and superstition and the sorcery of the Mad Arab create a world where only the strong survive, and barbarian warriors battle for survival in a bleak and pitiless universe…

Science fantasy tales of dying earths, of low tech dystopias, of medieval post-apocalyptic worlds—all with a Cthulhu Mythos slant—will be welcome in this anthology.
