Terrors From Beyond Artwork

I'll soon be appearing in a book for the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game called Terrors From Beyond, a collection of six horror gaming scenarios set in the 1920s. I'm one of the six contributing authors, with a scenario I set in Haiti called "The Burning Stars". The collection is edited by Gary Sumpter and features well known gaming authors such as Brian M. Sammons, Glyn White, Brian Courtemanche and John Almack.

I'd forgotten about this book as the manuscript was sent to the publisher nearly two years ago and I didn't hear much since. Then I was browsing the web the other day and discovered some of the artwork for my scenario posted online here. The artist is David Grilla and he's very talented. I'm looking forward to seeing what else he contributed to the book.

The other extremely talented artist featuerd in Terrors from Beyond is David Lee Ingersoll, whom I've worked with previously on several books including the cover for The Spiraling Worm. I've seen the two illustrations he did for "The Burning Stars" and they are just as good as David Grilla's work. Very different styles, but as equally effective.

So hopefully this means Terrors from Beyond will be out soon, and that it will be a very impressive looking collection.
