The digital edition of the first volume of A Grimoire of Eldritch Inquests has been out for almost a month now, and with the trade and hardback editions imminent, I decided that now was a good time to introduce readers to some of the occult investigators who populate these twenty-two tales of mystery and monsters. To that end, in the coming weeks I’ll be hosting a number of guest-posts by authors such as Tim Prasil, I.A. Watson and William Meikle, where they talk a bit about the likes of Vera Van Slyke, Vinnie de Soth and Derek Adams.

There are times when it becomes clear that a different sort of detective is needed; one who understands or at least accepts that threats are not always human or even physical and that solving the case will take more than a sharp eye.
This is the domain of the Occult Detective. (more…)
The final hour has come around at last. The end of all time, the end of all strife. Celebrate and rejoice, for thy doom is here. The Lord of the End Times has arrived, and soon all will be silence. But, before that moment, a song to sing as the world comes to its predestined end…
