Spotlight: Rom-Com Horror?
Alan Ryker has a new book out (his third). Well, technically it's a play, but who's counting, right?
You should check out this book. Why? Because I said so.
Not enough? Ok, fine. Also because Alan is a cool guy. He once defended my honor against a Grammar Troll. Also, who doesn't love a domestic romantic comedy horror!
He's an academic; she's an artist.
He worships Cthulhu, the slumbering behemoth; she worships Atlach-Nacha, the spider goddess of dreams.
Their interfaith marriage is challenging enough before the gods themselves arise and do battle. Can this couple hold their relationship together during the end of times?
Through the use of both horror and domestic comedy, When Cthulhu Met Atlach-Nacha examines the boldness and beauty of declaring a permanent relationship in a chaotic world.
When Cthulhu Met Atlach-Nacha is a one-act play with a run time of just under one hour.
