If the mere mention of Shakespeare fills you with dread, evoking memories of arduous afternoons spent in stuffy classrooms with eccentric English teachers, it is time to reconsider that far from being three-hour marathons of unintelligible boring rubbish, Shakespeare's plays are in fact exciting, tragic, funny and often downright rude - full of memorable plots, great insults, filthy jokes and eccentric characters.
Get ready for the War of the literary Worlds in the raucous new horror comedy, Shakespeare v Lovecraft! "I think you will enjoy the way Mr. O'Brien ties everything together and pits some of, if not the most famous characters in literature against each other. The story is fast paced with lot of action and adventure: a very enjoyable read and I wholeheartedly recommend it." FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND "Shakespeare's characters duking it out with Lovecraft's creatures?! Sign us up immediately!!!" DREAD CENTRAL "Luckily for us it seems that D R O'Brien is tainted with just enough craziness to pull this task off. O'Brien has breathed new life into these well known and loved characters. Thrilling, horrific and funny at the same time which is no mean feat... O'Brien is a talented writer." GINGERNUTS OF HORROR BLOG "All very inventive, clever and ghoulishly entertaining... Bizarre, baroque and amusing..." CONTAINS MODERATE PERIL "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 v. Lovecraft slithers hideously onto the literary mash-up scene, whispering of cosmic horrors and eldritch tales whilst espousing sweet soliloquys 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 only 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. This horror-comedy novella of 36,000 words will seize you in its clammy grip and not release you until you have gone positively mad with delight! Witness all this and more: Histrionic Heroes vs. Tentacled Terrors!!! Endless Soliloquys vs. Unnatural Silences!!! Romeo vs. Mi-Go!!! England's Royal Beasts vs. A Shoggoth!!! The Author vs. Iambic Pentameter!!!
