A novella. Cover and interior illustrations by Pete Von Sholly.

The Mound is possibly the “undiscovered Lovecraft” epic —long relegated to the dust-bin of so-called “revisions” this short novel comes very close to the quality and scope of Lovecraft’s finest, rivaling even The Shadow Out of Time or At the Mountains of Madness in scope. It tells of a hidden underground world and details no less than another history of life on our planet, evoking Cthulhu, Yig and Clark Ashton Smith’s Tsathoggua, their disciples and some grisly re-animated corpse variations sure to curdle the blood of the imaginative reader!
