New Tales of the Miskatonic Valley

Six all-new scenarios set in the fictional New England of H.P. Lovecraft. Written by veterans Keith Herber and Kevin Ross, and new Call of Cthulhu voices Christopher Smith Adair, Tom Lynch, and Oscar Rios. Cover art by Santiago Caruso and interior illustrations by Jason C. Eckhardt.

In Arkham, Tom Lynch's "The Reeling Midnight" introduces players to Arkham's truly decadent party scene.

Christopher Smith Adair's "Wasted Youth" explores the roots of juvenile delinquency, culminating in a wild chase through the wilderness.

"Spirit of Industry" takes players back to the village of Dunwich, where Oscar Rios explores old murders and an ancient mystery.

Foxfield is the setting for Keith Herber's "Proof of Life," a tale of extortion and madness in a brand new Lovecraft Country town.

Oscar Rios is back for seconds, this time exploring Kingsport and old grudged with "Malice Everlasting."

Kevin Ross, author of Kingsport, City in the Mists, revisits his creation when a veteran of the Great War is suddenly haunted by deadly nightmares.
