Welcome to Arkham: The Complete Guide to the World of Arkham Horror

By Matt Keefe

Explore the town of Arkham, setting for the beloved Arkham Horror series of tabletop games, in this comprehensive, full-color, hardcover guide to its people, places and strange goings on…

It is the Roaring Twenties. Hot new music, new dances and the drama of Prohibition occupy the nation’s attention. The sleepy New England town of Arkham is no different, except that here something strange is stirring – and for those who look, the signs are there to see…

Arkham is the setting for the Arkham Horror series of tabletop games, famed for their blend of pulp action, sinister mystery and unworldly horror. Now, for the first time, the town of Arkham itself takes center stage in this lavish, full-color, illustrated hardcover. From Miskatonic University to Arkham Asylum, the Nightingale Club and the Silver Twilight Lodge, people, places and events are presented in evocative detail, bringing to life the immersive, distinctive world of Arkham Horror.

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?
