Your Diploma Included

Back Cover Text

Commencement At the Spookiest School In the World...

"Some graduation!" you grumble to yourself as you dodge the green tentacles with practiced ease. But what did you expect? You enrolled in mysterious Miskatonic University, an institution created by the internationally-famous horror writer, H.P. Lovecraft. As proof, you clutch a diploma and a bundle of souvenirs.

In his stories, Lovecraft imagined a handful of scholars and invectigators burdened with knowledge of other dimensions and perilous entities, which the rest of the world could not comprehend. Bizarre evidence, ancient writing, and obscure coincidence gave weight to the threat of catastrophe. Only those few recognized the doom that threatened the world.

Since Lovecraft wrote, Miskatonic U. has survived, thrived, and grown famous. Tales are still written about it; films are set there. You can enroll today. Enrollment takes only a few seconds, and you can graduate as soon as you put your name on the enclosed diploma. Join the community.
