The Shoggoths of Cthulu mythos star in an Antarctica-set novel by the author of Reanimators, “the coolest, most gifted Lovecraftian writer working today” (W. H. Pugmire). Once, Dr. Stuart Hartwell sought to destroy a fellow colleague by revealing the dreadful mysteries of his unholy experiments—only to end up following the same venal path as a reanimator of the dead. Now Hartwell has returned—with company. Weird company: a witch, a changeling, a mad scientist, and a poet who is trapped in the form of a beast. These are not heroes, but monsters…monsters to fight monsters. Their adventures range across the globe, from the mountains and long-forgotten caves of the South Pole to a coastal town in Massachusetts that still holds terrifying secrets. Now, the Shoggoths are rising. And only the weird company stands between them and an unsuspecting world. This second book in a trilogy draws from some of the most legendary and fantastical literary characters and creatures in the history of uncanny fiction—“indeed, there’s much of Jules Verne, not to mention Conan Doyle, H.G. Wells and Rider Haggard in this story of adventure, science fiction and horror, which ranges from the back streets of Innsmouth to the frozen wastes of Antarctica.”—British Fantasy Society

Long ages after the god-like Others unleashed the Genetic Wars that annihilated Old Earth, war is once again threatening to consume the planet, shattering an uneasy peace between the remnant races of that primordial conflict. Kiel, First Commander of the reptilian Eligor Empire’s intelligence service, is obsessed with seeking out help from the primitive human Protectorate in order to determine why the once-benign insect-like Ikonians are suddenly and inexplicably on the rampage, and together, find a way of stopping them. Bishop, the human selected to assist Kiel, has little love for the Eligor but is forced by the masters of his knightly order to comply with the plea for help due to his unique and prophetic ability to use certain Old Earth technologies. Prophecy could finally be fulfilled and order restored to the Protectorate if Bishop is successful. Unfortunately the near-magical and awesome science of the Others does not give up its secrets easily and what’s worse, Bishop must journey to the very heart of Ikonia wherein awaits an even greater threat, a threat out of time itself, and with nothing but a hated reptilian Eligor, and an ill-bred Wolf-bird for company.
