Lovecraft P.I.™

LOVECRAFT P.I. is a story that re-envisions the macabre worlds of H.P. Lovecraft while mashing them together with the hard-boiled detective novels of Dashiell Hammett. In this world 'Ward' Lovecraft is a Paranormal Investigator with the Miskatonic Detective Agency, an unsentimental and stubborn man who is short on temperament and long on occult knowledge.


A small island town in the early 1950s is slowly dying, until a forgotten menace from the past resurfaces and speeds things up in the death department. The only chance for the town's residents lies with a ragtag group whose experience ranges from guerrilla fighting to bookkeeping, led by a scientist whose oddball theories might just be the key to the disaster. Cut off from the outside world by a hurricane, the group will do whatever it takes to combat the threat- if they can manage to stay alive.
