Cthulhu's Dark Cults Officially Announced

Cthulhu's Dark Cults has been officially announced on the Chaosium website, for release this winter (or summer if you live on the other side of the world to me). Still waiting on the official cover, as opposed to the cover Chaosium had in one of their catalogues several months back (which might be the same anyway).

Here is the blurb from the Chaosium website:

Cthulhu's Dark Cults
Schemes of the Secret Masters

CHA 6044
ISBN 1-56882-235-9
Edited by David Conyers
Fiction Anthology
Call of Cthulhu Fiction Anthology

Journey across the globe to witness the numerous and diverse cults that worship Cthulhu and the Great Old Ones. Lead by powerful sorcerers and fanatical necromancers, their followers are mad and deranged slaves. The ancient and alien gods whom they willingly devote themselves are truly terrifying. These cults control real power, for they are the real secret masters of our world. Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu is an endless source of imagination of all things dark and mysterious.

This book is part of an expanding collection of Cthulhu Mythos horror fiction and related topics. Call of Cthulhu fiction focuses on single entities, concepts, or authors significant to readers and fans of H.P. Lovecraft.This collection of ten stories features the cults which first appeared in classic Call of Cthulhu gaming supplements such as The Masks of Nyarlathotep, The Day of the Beast, Horror on the Orient Express, Shadows of Yog-Sothoth and others.
