“The information in the Guide could also be useful to an Investigator with a medical background, who seeks to learn how to extract a particular gland from a specific part of the horror’s anatomy. Once attained, the gland might then be combined with rare herbs and flowers to synthesize a powerful sedative that can be administered via elephant gun to safely subdue a horror.” 

“The sky’s the limit. Or, perhaps, the abyss is bottomless? In this regard, the Guide is a great source book for more than just storyline ideas. Keepers can use the information within the Guide to create unique weapons, medicines, and toxins.”

Follow Up Letter from the Mysteriously Missing Dr. Luis Merlo

A few weeks ago we published the first letter Sandy received from Dr. Merlo claiming to have dissected and illustrated a compendium of bizarre creatures that to Sandy, resembled some of the imaginary works of H.P. Lovecraft. This correspondence led to a friendship and ultimately the publication of our latest book The Anatomical Guide to Lovecraftian Horrors.

Here is the next letter he received, which continues to lend credence to the authenticity of his work. Sadly, Dr. Merlo seems to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances so we can’t validate anything. 

“Dear Mr. Petersen,

Thank you for your quick reply. I must assure you, the ichor on that sample is perfectly safe, so there is no biological danger. Lack of sleep can be dangerous when dissecting novel species, and carelessness can have more dire consequences than some stains on my notes.

To answer your question, no, sadly I do not carry a camera around and have mostly disposed of portable electronics. When I began my research, I was not aware of how dangerous electromagnetic fields could be when performing certain operations. You see, light-detection is a very limited sensory modality, as it is restrained by the presence of detectable light.

Older, more complex organisms can detect radio waves, x-rays, or electromagnetic fields from vast distances. Needless to say, one of my first field experiments almost resulted in me dying because of the phone in my pocket. Added to this, cameras don’t work under certain … environmental conditions.

I know this is difficult to grasp, but I ask that you trust me. As soon as I know it is safe, I will post some tangible evidence that proves my claims. In the meantime, my corrected notes on the Byakhee lifecycle will be mailed to you by an assistant in the coming weeks. I am preparing for a journey to Asia and will probably be away for a month.

“Overall, the volume is a perfect addition if one wants to use such in-depth data about different creatures, either for role-playing parties, game development, or just for my own short stories and ideas. And from Merlo, I hope we can see more similar publications in the future. If only he hid from the Great Elders and did not end up as their victim.”

GeekDad reviews The Anatomical Guide to Lovecraftian Horror

Paul Benson recently posted his review of our latest horror reference work, now available for purchase on our website.

“The Anatomical Guide to Lovecraftian Horror gives its subject matter a science-based approach, but with a narrow focus specifically on the cosmic creatures of the Cthulhu Mythos.”

“Overall, I enjoyed The Anatomical Guide to Lovecraftian Horror. Luis Merlo, who both wrote and illustrated this book, demonstrates a deep knowledge of anatomy and biology, and has applied that knowledge to these fictional creatures to create plausible explanations of their existence and behavior.”
