  • Claire Wolfe:
    This isn’t just a story of fighting drug warriors (though that, too). When something goes awry between dimensions and a rescue operation is needed, The Miskatonic Manuscript rapidly expands to encompass even more inter-dimensional travel, dinosaurs, nekkid women, .50 BMGs and RPGs, entheogenic drugs, and … well, you should really read to find out.
  • Thomas Mitchell:
    “The Miskatonic Manuscript,” novel, available for the first time today, picks up where last year’s “The Testament of James” left off. The book dares to imagine a world in which New England horror writer H.P. Lovecraft’s work was as much science as it was fiction and in which someone is actually fighting back in the War on Drugs. Think of it as Robert A. Heinlein meets Jules Verne and Carlos Castaneda.
  • John Walker:
    And now things start to get weird—very weird—Lovecraft weird. A mysterious gadget arrives with instructions to plug it into a computer. Impossible crimes. Glowing orbs. Secret laboratories. Native American shamans. Vortices. Big hungry things with sharp teeth. Matthew and Chantal find themselves on an adventure as risky and lurid as those on the Golden Age pulp science fiction shelves of the bookstore.
  • Thomas Knapp:
    One key question posed in The Miskatonic Manuscript is: “What if you fought a War on Drugs, and someone fought back?” The answer is laid out in a style tactically reminiscent both of Suprynowicz’s own The Black Arrow and Bill Brannon’s Let Us Prey. Those segments, and the careful explanation of the rationale, are worth the price of this book all by themselves. At some point in the probably not-too-distant future, I expect — and hope — they’ll be cited as prescient.
  • Tom Jackson:
    Anyone interested in the war on drugs and in psychedelic drugs will likely find the book interesting. The book moves along at a good clip, and Suprynowicz is interested in many of the same topics as I am and seems to know a lot.

My own review will be coming eventually.

    As will mine. I’ve read part one, but I’m in the middle of another project.

    Thanks, Carl! Things have been nuts around here this past week. All sorts of silly and frustrating complications … anyway, we’ll look forward to your review (and Ward’s too!) 🙂
