Stories, Novels, and More!
“It is absolutely necessary, for the peace and safety of mankind, that some of earth’s dark, dead corners and unplumbed depths be let alone; lest sleeping abnormalities wake to resurgent life, and blasphemously surviving nightmares squirm and splash out of their black lairs to newer and wider conquests…”
In the Belly of the Beast
In the Belly of the Beast is inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft and the epic tabletop game Cthulhu Wars, published by Petersen Games.
Contained in this book are eight short stories and a compete novel. The short stories are all inspired by the factions and cults of the “Cthulhu Wars” game, and the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft and his collaborators.
The novel, In the Belly of the Beast, tells the story of a small group of human survivors trying to find a safe haven amidst the ruins of civilization. While traveling through a treacherous mountain pass, they find themselves caught between rival cults, and discover there are worse things in the cold places of the world than frostbite.
“This novel vividly brings my setting of Cthulhu Wars to life. I am impressed by Ben Monroe’s skill in evoking cosmic despair and horror.” – Sandy Petersen, Author of Call of Cthulhu
