Arkham Horror

It is the height of the Roaring Twenties – a fresh enthusiasm for the arts, science, and exploration of the past have opened doors to a wider world, and beyond… And yet, a dark shadow grows in the city of Arkham. Alien entities known as Ancient Ones lurk in the emptiness beyond space and time, writhing at the thresholds between worlds. Eldritch rituals must be stopped and alien creatures destroyed; before the Ancient Ones make our world their ruined dominion. Only a handful of investigators stand against the horrors threatening to tear this world apart. Will they prevail?

Interviews and Articles

“I cannot overstate how much I enjoyed Nova Malone. The book gets a five out of five from me.”
Lauren’s Bookshelf

“The adventure elements of the story are strong, as Betsy indulges her addiction to adrenaline rushes with the assistance of her pilot friend, Wini Habbamock.”
Chris L. Owens

“Jones once again provides a fast-paced and deeply compelling narrative as Betsy bull-headedly strives into the morass of chaos and corruption in the midst of Arkham and Innsmouth, and her skillful prose is immediately put to work in not only developing both the overarching Arkham Horror setting”
Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviewer

“This has the vibe of a matinee movie, but also a strong detective story. As always, at the end of these books those who survive are forever changed by their encounters with the Great Unknown – as are we, the reader.”
The Catbox

“For some thrills set at the seashore (and we know what kinds of things live in the sea) pick up The Deadly Grimoire and take yourself back to 1926 and get a little wing walking for your reading pleasure.”
Happy Horror Writer

“Jones manages to capture the horror and mystery of the game and pairs this perfectly with a pulpy and rip-roaring 1920s setting.”
What You Tolkien About

“The Deadly Grimoire is an interesting addition to the Arkham Horror line, one that brings a very different kind of energy to things. It has more of a focus on the glory days of Hollywood, features silent movie stars, stung pilots, and dangerous bootleggers over the more otherworldly horror aspects. Whilst this may leave some people wanting more cosmic horror than is in the book, those wanting to spend some time with some interesting characters and getting to know a bit more about Arkham will come away satisfied.”

“I may have a new favorite Arkham story: Mask of Silver… [a] slow-burn work of unsettling horror.”
– Fistful of Meeples

“I loved Mask of Silver, and am very much looking forward to the next title in this excellent series.”
– The Catbox
