Herald of Chernobog
Viktor is a vagabond treasure hunter, a warrior, and a physician who lost his license for doing experiments on extra-terrestrial predators. Determined to win back his Earth citizenship, he follows clues that lead him to the Bermuda triangle of asteroid belts. The Cthulhu used a device called the Herald to control time, and Viktor hopes to use the ancient artifact to defeat death. The Herald is kept on Yuggoth which legend says is at the center of the Cernobog Asteroid Belt – right along with a black hole.
As a long time fan of the pulps, I wanted to create a story that blended my love of Robert E. Howard’s story “The Servants of Bit-Yakin” with H.P. Lovecraft’s “At the Mountain of Madness.” I set it in space, sprinkled it with forgotten European folklore, and hope I’ve spun these classics into something unique. Please enjoy.
