Press Release – Modiphius to launch Dark Tales anthology Winter ’14/15

Includes my “Shadow of the Black Sun” short story

Modiphius to launch Achtung Cthulhu Dark Tales from the Secret War including Mythos Fiction by David J Rodger

Modiphius to launch fiction anthology to supplement Achtung! Cthulhu universe

Very exciting news coming out of Modiphius, the folks who commissioned a bunch of us writers  to flesh out the world of Achtung! Cthulhu with some 1940s Dark Fantasy Fiction entrenched in the weird and cosmic horror of H.P.Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos.

Here’s the link to the official press release. I think the plan at the moment is to try to run the launch at this year’s Dragonmeet convention (Dec 6th in London). Official launch or not I’ll be there at Dragonmeet with some of the writers and the editor John Houlihan.

I aim to have some of my novels and the RPG – Yellow Dawn – The Age of Hastur there as samples, with a view to taking orders for sale. I won’t be carrying stock but let me know if you want some signed copies and I’ll order them in advance and bring with  me.  Be great to see some of you folks there.

You can use this contact form to get in touch about pre-orders.

Chris Birch, the man behind Modiphius and Music Biz Entrepreneur Jonathan Rowlands have taken over Dragonmeet which promises to be the “UK’s friendliest gaming event”.
