Do You Know Who You Are?
After reading our Winter Issue, you might not.
This is Professor Wilmarth and your friendly neighborhood Cthulhu welcoming you to another journey within the world of the macabre and the strange. In this season’s issue, we have several tales of impersonations, body snatching, switcheroos, and tales of other dimensions.
First, we have everyone’s favorite immortal, Henry Sinclair, working with the Man in the Baltimore Coat and Alan Quartermain attempt to prevent an entity from another dimension taking over one of two presidents in Dead Presidents in the Castle. Following that we have Mark Twain’s train woes in Mistaken Identity. Next is H.G. Wells’ The Stolen Body where a man’s body is stolen by demons as he was astral projecting. Lisa Deschenes brings us the latest in her Salem Cemetery Series with a tale of what happens to a man who tried switching a car on a devious young woman in Roy. Pohl brings us a groundhog tale filled with horrid ads in The Tunnel Under the World. Last but not least, we have Philip K. Dick’s The Father-Thing as a bunch of kids fight the neighborhood dad who has been cloned by aliens.
Some stories touch on historical facts and others you will hope are just pure fiction. Let’s see if you can figure out all the connections between the tales. Who knows, you might even find more than I reveal at the end of our installment from Arkham: Tales from the Flipside.
Cthulhu is shedding, he might not be sitting on the bar below. That might be his old skin? If so, he might just be behind you with his fork and knife in his hand.
Are you afraid to find out who you are…
