Product description


Praise for After the End of the World

This is an entertaining and meticulously crafted mix of speculative history, suspense, sardonic humor, and cosmic horror. --Publishers Weekly

"It's not often one sees the reboot of a series that's only one book old. But the second Carter and Lovecraft novel, following Carter & Lovecraft (2015), reboots the heck out of the series...This is a wonderful novel, ambitious on many levels and thoroughly successful. Its central characters are even more compelling than they were in their first appearance (here there's an added fishout-of-water element), and the story is diabolically clever and convoluted. As readers wait for the next installment, they will ask themselves where Howard will take Daniel and Emily next." -Booklist

Praise for Carter & Lovecraft

"This refreshingly original novel updates the eldritch horrors of H.P. Lovecraft for the 21st century." --Publishers Weekly

"Howard brings the fine writing and attention to detail (character, dialogue, environment) that he developed in the Cabal series to this new book, and his fans should follow him to Rhode Island. Those unfamiliar with the Cabal books, especially readers with a taste for modern-day urban fantasy, should also be pointed in this title's direction." --Booklist

Providence (including its more imaginary pockets of cosmic wrongness) comes to life in this pleasant mix of mystery and eldritch horror from the author of the Johannes Cabal series. The two engaging protagonists could easily ground an ongoing series of otherworldly whodunits. --Library Journal

Howard's take on Lovecraft and his influence is unexpected and somewhat unique - and one of several reasons why this inaugural title is noteworthy. --Bookgasm

"Carter & Lovecraft is a Pandora's Box loaded with all of the wonderfully twisted stuff I love, including a two-fisted homicide cop turned P.I., warped realities, a mysterious bookstore, the Cthulhu mythos, a dash of romance, and creepy fish-men. What's not to love? Jonathan L. Howard knows how to show his readers a wickedly good time." --Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Dead Ringers

Book Description
