“We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep.” — William Shakespeare
“In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.” — Howard Phillips Lovecraft
In the same putrid vein as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Shakespeare vs. Lovecraft slithers hideously onto the literary mash-up scene, whispering of cosmic horrors and eldritch tales whilst espousing sweet soliloquies and profoundly contemplating mankind’s place in the universe.
Prospero, driven dangerously insane by prolonged exposure to the dread Necronomicon, makes a terrible pact with the titanic alien beast known as Cthulhu. Now only his enchantress daughter, Miranda, and a handful of history’s greatest heroes are all that stand between humanity and blasphemous eternal subjugation.
It’s a bloodbath of Shakespearean proportions as Cthulhu and his eldritch companions come at our protagonists from all manner of strange geometric angles in a hideous and savage battle for supremacy.
