About The Book
The city of Arkham falls prey to ghoulish dread in this chilling anthology of action-packed adventure, from the bestselling world of Arkham Horror
Something monstrous has come to Arkham, Massachusetts. There have always been shadows here, but now a new hunger has risen from the depths and threatens those who dwell here. But there are heroes too – people who stand up and fight to stem the tide, even when it costs them everything. Explore eight shocking new tales of occult horror, captivating mystery, and existential fear – from a zealous new heroine to conniving cultists, bootleg whiskey to night terrors, and fiends that crawl from open graves. A nightmare has fallen across Arkham, and it will devour all.

Raves and Reviews
"As always with Aconyte’s impressive (and ever-growing) range, it also finds a satisfying balance between being detailed enough for existing fans of this IP and accessible enough for readers taking their first steps into Arkham Horror fiction. All told it’s fun, suitably creepy, wonderfully varied and consistently entertaining. What more could we ask for?"
– Track of Words
"Not only are each of the stories engaging, atmospheric and deeply compelling slices of Jazz Age horror fiction by themselves, but editor Charlotte Llewelyn-Wells has ensured that every tale progresses the overarching narrative of the horrifying activities and occult plots of the Cult of Umôrdhoth, developing a cohesive and chilling meta-narrative that comes to an action-packed and quietly unsettling conclusion. "
– Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviewer
"I've really enjoyed the Arkham Horror novels I've read, and have found them to be some incredibly creepy and compelling horror mystery stories, so I'm absolutely over the moon to see these tales work so well in short story form too, and I'm excited to see more anthology books like this."
"All eight stories in this collection are strong reads and have done a great job of tiding me over until I have the chance to pick up more full length novels and further familiarize me with the universe of the series. I can't wait to read more from this series and maybe even try the board game."
– Never Anyone Else
"An entertaining horror anthology with plenty of chills."
