By I.N.J. Culbard

Paperback with flaps, 144 pp, $19.95

"Three times I dreamed of the marvellous city, and three times I was snatched away."

Obsessed with revisiting the sunset city of his dreams, Randolph Carter leaves the humdrum confines of reality behind, travelling into a vivid dreamworld where anything is possible. But while Carter draws closer to his goal – the mysterious Kadath, home to the gods themselves – another force, dark and brooding, is watching with plans of its own. An epic fantasy mixing adventure, peril and wonder in equal parts, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath explores themes of memory and forbidden knowledge through the prism of H.P. Lovecraft's boundless imagination.
