Publisher's Summary

After the End of the World by Jonathan L. Howard brings the H. P. Lovecraft mythos into the 21st century.

The Unfolded World is a bitter and unfriendly place for Daniel Carter and Emily Lovecraft. In this world the Cold War never happened because the Soviet Union ceased to exist in 1941. In this world the Nazi Großdeutschland is the premier superpower and is not merely tolerated but indulged because, in this world, the Holocaust happened behind the ruins of the Iron Curtain and consumed only Bolsheviks, Communists, and others the West was glad to see gone. In this world there are monsters, and not all of them are human.

But even in the Unfolded World, there are still bills to pay and jobs to do. Carter finds himself working for the German secret security service to uncover the truth behind a major scientific joint project that is going suspiciously well. The trail takes Lovecraft and him to a distant, abandoned island and a conspiracy that threatens everything. To fight it, Lovecraft must walk a perilously narrow path between forbidden knowledge and soul-destroying insanity.

Fortunately, she also has a shotgun.

This dark, captivating audiobook will send listeners into a twisted version of the world they will be thankful not to inhabit.

    Story
    "Fantastic fun, eldritch horrors, and a cliffhanger"

    Second entry in the series and it opens with a doozy -- WWII mostly averted by the destruction of Moscow by the Nazis. Which means our eponymous protagonists (Carter & Lovecraft) live in an alternative reality where the Nazis are a few decades into that promised thousand year Third Reich, the US never entered the war, Japan was never bombed, their was no Holocaust against the Jews but rather one against Bolsheviks and Communists, and Britain faded away without the heroics of that Great War (and thus the world is without the James Bond films). In this Unfolded World things are simultaneously similar and jarringly different -- there hadn't been the massive awakening for social justice without the impetus of the Holocaust, so wandering around the streets of America people look at you in horror if you use the "n word," only in this world the n word is Nazi (it's rude to call someone that just because they are in the party). Germany is an ally of the US and the great world power, and the US never rose to dominance and sadly never made it to television's golden age (much to Carter's dismay).

    Carter & Lovecraft are making their way in this world, the former continuing as a PI and the latter still owner of a bookshop in the Unfolded World's version of Providence (Arkham). Yet again, the inhuman and ever-smiling Weston shows up and sets into motion another adventure, this time implicating German special agents, super-advanced science, and cosmic horrors. The book ends neatly, but with plenty of promise for another entry. Though left in the Unfolded World, there may be powers and knowledge in reach to return home. Now readers just have to wait patiently for Howard to deliver again.

    Story
    "Delicious pulp fiction/cosmic horror"

    JLH figured out a plausible way for an aryan Gestapo agent to pleadingly ask the black protagonist not to call him the "n-word" (Nazi). I'm pretty sure he wrote the rest of the plot just to setup that line. Totally worth it.

    Story
    "Twilight Zone meets Night Stalker meets X-Files"

    Not only is the story’s plot gripping but the high quality of the writing and performance ensure maximum impact to the listener. In particular, Ari Fliakos’ delivery of the finely tuned rhythms of Howard’s rapid-fire prose are reminiscent of Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone episode introductions.

    The result is deliciously stimulating to the intellect, creep-out receptors and funny bone in well-blended measures.
