Our intrepid traveler, Dr. Luis Merlo, has completed all the art and text to The Anatomical Guide to Lovecraftian Horrors. His work is now being laid out in its final form. As a bonus, Dr. Merlo sketched some skulls from some of the horrors he discovered in the field — the Gnorri, Shantak, and Gyaa-yoth.

Enjoy this sneak peek from Sandy’s introduction: 

In 2018, Dr. Luis Merlo first contacted me with his idea for a scientific work about the otherworld entities which Howard Phillips Lovecraft first revealed to the world in the 1920s and 1930s. Naturally I assumed this would be a work of fiction, like my own Petersen’s Field Guides (1987, 1988).

But as Luis started sending me more and more of his sketches, some on paper stained by mysterious fluids, I started wondering … just where WAS he getting these?
