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.


  1. It sounds ace doesn't it? Well, it will either be ace, or really, REALLY bad. But judging by his other books, hopefully the former.

  2. How unexpected and awesome! Thanks Shea!

    James: It is definitely one of those premises that leaves no middle-ground. My hope is that the low price will get people who don't know my writing to take a chance on it, perhaps thinking that even if it's not good, maybe they'll get something so incredibly bad it'll be entertaining.
