What is Carcosa?

For Alan Chambers, a jobless loner, it’s the answer to his problems. Or so he thinks…

Rejected by family and friends, and soon-to-be homeless, Alan makes his last desperate bid to discover the truth of this miserable reality by journeying to an occult brothel where it’s said the worthy might obtain passage to this fabled land of Carcosa.

Proving one’s worth is more dangerous than Alan could have imagined.

Prepare for an erotic and horrifying journey into the universe of the Yellow King…

The Claw of Craving is the first in the Books of Lost Carcosa series, an epic fantasy-horror that reimagines the astonishing mythos of Robert W. Chambers. Combining Clive Barker’s eroticism and fantasy with Stephen King’s pulse-pounding narrative, The Claw of Craving will please fans of ImajicaWeaveworldThe Dark TowerH. P. Lovecraft, Eric LaRocca, and Alistair Rennie.
