THE COMPLETE MYTHOS FICTION OF PIERRE V. COMTOIS

In the glory-days of pulp magazines many editors abused and exploited their writers. They would hand a writer a piece of cover art and ask for a story crafted to match that art. Some of these authors were quite skilled at writing marketable tales, but the prize must go to the extraordinarily versatile Pierre Comtois — always happy to craft a story for any occasion, in any sub-genre, to go with any wacky title.

Pierre Comtois embeds his horror stories in the midst of real historical and personal circumstances. His devotion to pulp fiction is evident on every page but, like other skilled pulp writers, he shows the influence of classic literature.

In these nineteen stories of Lovecraftian horror, he takes us from the farm country of Dunwich to the darkest corners of Central Asia, from Arkham to the Russian steppe, from the Arizona desert to the frozen landscape of Antarctica. Here is a gateway to the disturbing, the horrific, and the shuddery strangeness that gripped you the first time you discovered the off-trail fascination of the Cthulhu Mythos!

Written and selected by Pierre Comtois, edited by Nick Nacario and Charlie Krank. Cover art by Victor Leza. Interior art by C. George Porter and Gregorio Montejo. 448 pages. Trade Paperback.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
