THE TITUS CROW SERIES – by BRIAN LUMLEY – Narrated by SIMON VANCE & COREY SNOW
In a departure from many Cthulhu Mythos stories, Lumley’s characters are not helpless victims of unimaginable forces which can drive humans mad by merely manifesting themselves. Instead, Titus Crow, his friend Henri-Laurent de Marigny, and other Lumley characters confront Cthulhu’s minions in a series of increasingly large-scale encounters, in which humans, although outmatched, try to fight back.
THE BLACK OAK SERIES – by CHARLES L. GRANT – Narrated by ARTHUR FLAVELL
If you enjoy such surreal eyes as Harry Angel, Harry D’Amour and “Repairman Jack”, you might also be interested in checking out Charles L. Grant’s Black Oak series, which centers around Black Oak Security, “a crack team of private investigators led by brilliant, enigmatic ETHAN PROCTOR.” Black Oak handles many of the typical P.I. gigs: office fraud, business scams, background checks, missing persons, and a variety of white collar crime. But they also frequently trip the dark fantastic, thanks to Proctor’s abiding interest in, as one Amazon pundit puts it, “creatures and forces greater than natural.”
