Publisher says – reading The Black Lake was like finding undiscovered John Wyndham novel

New Praise for an Old Book

I released The Black Lake in 2012 and it quickly picked up interest, including a critical and very positive review by The Guardian.  It continues to sell at a steady pace as my role-playing game Yellow Dawn – The Age of Hastur gains further traction, generating crossover conversions from fans wanting to read novels set in this post-apocalyptic (and Cthulhu Mythos infected) world.  Here’s some feedback that came through recently on Facebook from a publisher – she has a first edition with the old, original cover:

David J Rodger’s vision of a post-apocalyptic world was given a spooky twist last year in The Black Lake, after the action-packed hit Dog Eat Dog and alongside the tense, slow-burning thriller of recently released The Social Club.

In the wake of a cataclysmic event ten years ago (Yellow Dawn), survivors are still struggling to understand what has happened to the Earth – and make sense of the alien, sometimes surreal, consequences that now dominate so much of daily life across the planet.

Five men leave their survivor fortress in Malta on a sea-expedition to the sub-Arctic waters above Scotland. They intend to undertake scientific observations of violent and fascinating meteorological phenomenon that takes place there – considered the focus point of some kind of singularity. What they find is a cosmic horror that seethes amongst the shadows of this darkened world. It is a story of escape and wonder, of madness and terror.

The Black Lake by David J Rodger a science fiction dark fantasy horror story that blends post-apocalypse with Cthulhu Mythos
