The lovely books

The lovely books

Spent Valentine’s day walking around the snowy streets of Philadelphia while waiting for a table. Popped into the Joseph Fox Bookstore during our travels. This shop was a crowded little affair. I felt like I was in a  broom closet, albeit a wonderful broom closet that is filled floor to ceiling with books.  I love the Mütter Museum, so I was excited to find a biography on Dr. Mutter, the 19th century surgeon. Picked up some Egyptian mythology for my son.

We almost missed our train back but were in luck, as it was delayed from the snow. There is nothing like a wintery train ride with a good book!


Keep off the tracks

Elder Sign End Times Trilogy Book 1: Arkham

elder sign stanfield

Elder Sign End Times Trilogy Book 1: Arkham by Jennifer Stanfield is a young adult fantasy/horror story. The book is 268 pages and was self-published with Smashwords in December, 2014.

A young adult novel set in a Lovecraftian universe is an unusual combination, but the author makes it work. The story was very readable, and I enjoyed it from start to finish.

Book review: A Season in Carcosa

season in carcosa A Season in Carcosa (Miskatonic River Press, 2012), edited by Joseph S. Pulver Sr, is a collection of 22 short stories that are based on Robert Chamber’s King in Yellow mythos.  The request to potential contributors of this collection stated: “No reprints. No HPL anything…This is a book about madness, altered realities, splintered minds, and what is behind the mask.” The stories in A Season in Carcosa range from good to AMAZING. Most stories range in the ‘very good’ category. A few were well-developed but the writing style was not my cup of tea. I have a confession… Continue reading
