When a mysterious killer haunts Arkham, three struggling investigators must confront the eldritch horrors of their past in this action-packed pulp adventure from the world of Arkham Horror
In the swirling sewers beneath Arkham, excavators uncover a crystalline formation that hints at dark events from the city’s past. As the discovery makes headlines, so too does a series of bizarre murders. With no leads, the Arkham police are always one step behind. Acting on a hunch, down-on-his luck former journalist Andy Van Nortwick reunites with adventurer Jake Williams and struggling filmmaker Maude Brion to unearth the truth. The trio know of the supernatural horrors that lurk beyond this world, and the reality haunts them. But time is running out and between them they must face their nightmares before the city of Arkham is lost to blood and chaos.
S A SIDOR is the author of four dark crime thrillers and more recently two splendid supernatural-pulp adventures, Fury From the Tomb and The Beast of Nightfall Lodge. He lives near Chicago with his family.

Raves and Reviews
"It gives readers a different perspective on Arkham, a different type of adventure, and different scares. Go into it knowing that you're going to get something new and you're going to have a great time with it."
"Overall, this book is great for anyone liking the supernatural, anyone who’s already a fan of the Arkham Horror series, or anyone who loves murder mysteries."
– Cosmic Circus
"If you have been reading Aconyte’s catalog, then “The Lair of the Crystal Fang” will treat you to some worthwhile surprises. Alternatively, if you are a tabletop player that enjoys the game but wants to be exposed to more of the lore of the setting you spend hours playing with then I recommend this as a highly accessible story that will give your games a more in-depth feel."
– Arkham's Historian
"If you are looking for a brilliant and pulpy novel look no further. Sidor’s writing suits the story and setting perfectly mixing the creepy horror and pulpy action to create something that you are hardly able to put down."
