This book is a collection of short Lovecraftian gastronomical stories. It will tickle your weird bone, but will also give you directions to make real, tested, delicious dishes. Sometimes the recipe is just an excuse for the story, sometimes is the other way around, and occasionally there won’t be no recipe at all. Most of the stories are tongue-in-cheek, even outright silly, as an affectionate tribute to Lovecraft and the Mythos; but a couple of tales are a bit different. There are bits –large and small– inspired by Frank Belknap Long, Donald Wandrei, Arthur Machen, Robert Bloch, Robert W. Chambers, Clark Ashton Smith, and Douglas Adams.

“A culinary homage to the master of weird fiction. If you like HPL and cooking, or even eating for that matter, you will enjoy this short collection of recipes nested in stories, or stories nested in recipes. If I had to pick my favorite, I believe it would be The Feastival. Full disclosure: I have known the author for several years now, and I am proud to call him my friend.”

H.P. Lovecraft fan since my teens. Love to cook.
So naturally my first book had to cross those two streams.
