Michael O'Brien

Earlier this year we announced our partnership with Aconyte Books, the fiction imprint of global games group Asmodee, to create and publish brand new novels for the Call of Cthulhu game settings Regency Cthulhu and Cthulhu by Gaslight.

Following the cover reveal of Cath Lauria's Secrets and Sacrifices, the first Regency Cthulhu novel, to be released on April 2nd 2024 comes news of the first Cthulhu by Gaslight novel.

The Shadow on the Glass, by Jonathan L Howard, will be released on June 2nd 2024.


When two spiritist swindlers accidentally summon something horrific from beyond the stars, they must thwart a sinister time-spanning plot, in this first Victorian-era gaslight fantasy set in the world of Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu.

London, 1891. Elizabeth Whittle and William Grant enjoy scalping London’s bourgeoise, taking on the persona of grand spiritist Cerulia Trent and her agent to connect the living and the dead. When a detective arrives, sniffing out fraud with a scientifically minded spiritualist society, the duo decides to take one last job before escaping to the continent. However, their final séance ends horrifically… and soon Lizzie isn’t Lizzie anymore. William, desperate to banish whatever monster they summoned, is soon embroiled in an electrifying eldritch mystery where he makes a deal with the devil to save his friend and stop an even greater evil from transforming the known world.
