We were so happy with how our last project (Littlest Lovecraft: The Call of Cthulhu) turned out that we’re at it again with an adaptation of The Dunwich Horror. Like the last one, this will be a full color, fully illustrated volume, written in verse and coming in at around 64 pages.  Our base goal is to print it in softcover, perfect bound, but our first stretch goal is to have all the books printed in beautiful hardcover!

Check out some of our gorgeous interior illustrations!

We are huge Lovecraft fans! We’re hoping to help grow a new generation of Lovecraftians by luring them in with our version of the story and tempting them to read the originals! Plus, we had so much fun with the last one on Kickstarter (which we delivered early!!), that we've been looking forward to hanging out with our backers again!

We're aiming to have our rewards out in time for Halloween this year!

Check out all the goodies we've got in store for you guys - books, postcards, prints, t-shirts, etc.  Here's a breakdown of each of the tiers:
