Do You Know Who You Are?

After reading our Winter Issue, you might not.

Arkham: Tales from the Flipside Winter 2022 coverThis 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.

New Arkham: Tales from the Flipside

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 aliens, strange houses, killer turtles, and the end of the world.

  We begin with Henry traveling back to Cromwellian England to face an evil that has spread out through American history…Next Hilton brings us a forboding home in The House Jack Built. Then Martin Pearson gives us a tale of a private dick looking for an alien embassy in New York City. In Deschenes’ LGBTQs, we learn it’s not nice to fool with mother nature or men in 5-inch heels. Followed by Simak’s Worry Wort in which a copyreader follows the course of a young lad’s power to shift the events of the world to a naive Utopia, which might be the end of everything. Herbert then brings us to a deal too good to be true when a young couple gets to trade their mobile home for a palace. Last we have Stuart bringing us into a deep freeze in Who Goes There?; a tale of an alien invasion that wins one cell at a time.   

   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.

  Well, Cthulhu is hungry, don’t mind if he starts nibbling on your toes as you begin to read, don’t worry, the world will be over before he eats anything important.

Part Two to Lost Taira: What a Boar!

Read the latest installment from The Sinclair Narratives, the sequel to the Lost Tiara where Henry and Bjorn fought back Rasputin, Crane, and Jp Morgan II on the eve of WWII as the bird flu was spreading throughout the world after Crane robbed a magical and deadly tiara from the recently executed royal family of Russia. In What a Boar! Henry and Bjorn who has reached far beyond his 80th birthday (and his bones are creaking and he doesn’t like it) go on a boar hunt…

Normally Bjorn reaches 80, has a bar fight, walks out after everyone is unconscious, and dies the next day. This time it didn’t work out; he was rubbed by a magical boar back in 1918 in the Pines of NJ that was infected by the flu and now during the SARS2 epidemic a hundred years later as the Russians are getting revenge for toppling their Russian Provisional Government, Bjorn goes hunting for that magical pig of resurrection with Henry. For when the boar that infected him dies, so will Bjorn!
