Aaron Blackabout this book: When Roger Whistbury learns that a mysterious young woman has appeared on the luxury steamer Memphis, he sees an opportunity for lighthearted seduction.
But the young woman he meets hidden away in the crew quarters has a terrifying companion and neither of them seem very happy to make Roger's acquaintance. Roger quickly learns that the pair are violent desperadoes in pursuit of a mad German doctor.
And before he knows it, finds himself embroiled in a desperate struggle to stop a madman from unleashing an unspeakable horror: a creature which has lain undisturbed since the time of the Pharaohs.
Under the Shadow of Madness is a fun, fast-paced mashup of Chekhov's famous short story, The Lady with the Dog and Lovecraftian horror. Set in the 1920's on a luxury British steamer, Under the Shadow began as a very short piece but, as with so many things Cthulhu, it turned out to have a life of its own and grew into a much longer tale.
