Remember last February, when Free League Publishing launched a Kickstarter for a new printing of the classic HP Lovecraft story “The Call Of Cthulhu”? It’s ready.

This isn’t an original story inspired by Lovecraft’s writing…this IS Lovecraft’s writing. It’s the actual Call of Cthulhu, reprinted on large paper and brought to life by the acclaimed artist François Baranger. The makers of Tales from The Loop, Mutant: Year Zero, and other tabletop projects are going straight to HP Lovecraft’s perennially popular world…

What has risen may sink, and what has sunk may rise… 

When Francis Thurston discovers notes left behind by his grand-uncle, he soon discovers evidence of an unspeakable horror. An insight that something beyond reality itself is haunting humanity. Nightmarish visions of a colossal city that rises from the sea and a sleeping god that drives people into madness. In the shadows, those dwell that wish to awaken the one that slumbers in order to spread madness and destruction over the world.

Step by step, Francs realizes that his relative’s research got too close to the truth. Francis becomes obsessed by the search for knowledge, while ancient powers rises from the depth and a darkness descends upon the world. The stars are right. The end is near.

The Kickstarter was a massive success, and the product it was meant to fund is almost ready to ship. You can preorder The Call Of Cthulhu today by visiting this page on Free League’s website. The book comes out October 31.
