Lair of the Crystal Fang

An Arkham Horror Novel

By S A Sidor

When a mysterious killer haunts Arkham, three struggling investigators must confront the eldritch horrors of their past in this action-packed pulp adventure from the world of Arkham Horror

In the swirling sewers beneath Arkham, excavators uncover a crystalline formation that hints at dark events from the city’s past. As the discovery makes headlines, so too does a series of bizarre murders. With no leads, the Arkham police are always one step behind. Acting on a hunch, down-on-his luck former journalist Andy Van Nortwick reunites with adventurer Jake Williams and struggling filmmaker Maude Brion to unearth the truth. The trio know of the supernatural horrors that lurk beyond this world, and the reality haunts them. But time is running out and between them they must face their nightmares before the city of Arkham is lost to blood and chaos.

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?

Midwest Book Review

“Overall, this book is great for anyone liking the supernatural, anyone who’s already a fan of the Arkham Horror series, or anyone who loves murder mysteries.”
Cosmic Circus

“It gives readers a different perspective on Arkham, a different type of adventure, and different scares. Go into it knowing that you’re going to get something new and you’re going to have a great time with it.”
Trans-Scribe

“This is a wonderful pulp horror novel filled with an intriguing mystery, murder, witches and ancient beings…”
Mr Ghost Reads

“If you have been reading Aconyte’s catalog, then “The Lair of the Crystal Fang” will treat you to some worthwhile surprises. Alternatively, if you are a tabletop player that enjoys the game but wants to be exposed to more of the lore of the setting you spend hours playing with then I recommend this as a highly accessible story that will give your games a more in-depth feel.”
Arkham’s Historian

“If you are looking for a brilliant and pulpy novel look no further. Sidor’s writing suits the story and setting perfectly mixing the creepy horror and pulpy action to create something that you are hardly able to put down.”

Praise for S A Sidor’s Arkham Horror Novels

“Superbly written, deftly plotted and imbued with an absolutely first-rate cast of characters that easily retain the reader’s attention until the very last page, Cult of the Spider Queen is a highly-polished and deeply impressive slice of Jazz-Era horror.”

Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviewer, on Cult of the Spider Queen

 

“As unsettling and disturbing as anything that Lovecraft himself wrote… a complex, gripping roller coaster ride.”
