he has been a fixture in many of the new anthologies We had the very nifty `Outside Looking In' in Hardboiled Cthulhu a story were perception and reality are not the same thing `Regrowth' from Arkham Tales which concerned the melding of disparate forms of life and `False Containment' which is here and originally appeared in Horrors Beyond I think `A Shared Romance' was in the short lived Cthulhu Express Mr Conyers has had a fair number of his other stories in magazines of weird fiction I am a bit less familiar with the stories of John Sunseri I recall the very fine `The Hades Project' from Horrors Beyond and the enjoyable `A Little Job in Arkham' from Hardboiled CthulhuThe mythos subgenre for this collection is by now well established that is the action packed noir cloak and dagger the government is in it up to their necks mythos For years great fiction of this sort has been published in the Delta Green books from Pagan Publishing Cody Goodfellow's Radiant Dawn and Ravenous Dusk are masterful examples and Charlie Stross has weighed in with The Atrocity Archive and The Jennifer Morgue He has also written what may be the absolute finest modern mythos story `A Colder War' available in his collection Toast and the upcoming Cthulhian Singularity The Spiraling Worm fits very comfortably into this company If this is the sort of story you like you are in for a real treat with this book No helpless pasty faced recluse cowering in a garret driven mad by his special knowledge of how terribly indifferent the universe is Red blooded action heroes throw themselves into the breech refusing to go gentle into that good night Some housekeeping The publisher is Chaosium The Spiraling Worm is a 320 page paperback The cover art looks kind of cool on the website but I don't know who did it and can't say much about it Why This is my biggest gripe about the book I got the special edition hardcover and while it is a nice cloth bound book it does not have a slipcover and thus no artwork Man did that peeve me I guess I should have noted this before I bought it Now I am left to wonder if I should buy the soft cover tooHere are the contentsIntroduction CJ HendersonMade of Meat Conyers Originally published in Temple of Dagon revisedTo What Green Altar Sunseri newImpossible Object Conyers Originally published in Dreaming in R'lyeh #2False Containment Conyers Originally published in Horrors BeyondResurgence Sunseri newWeapon Grade Conyers newThe Spiraling Worm Sunseri and Conyers newAfterwardAbout the AuthorsSpoilers may follow so stop reading if that bothers youFirst of all the Introduction and Afterward are very entertaining and also very useful in getting a handle on where the authors are coming from Best of all they let us now a follow on volume with the characters from this book is in the works already and CJ Henderson will be contributing some stories I keep saying we are in the golden age of mythos fiction The first three stories by Conyers were not written with this book of linked stories in mind Instead Mr Conyers was creating Major Harrison Peel developing his character and stretching his wings in this particular subgenre After Conyers ad Sunseri decided to collaborate on The Spiraling Worm the original Peel tales were ordered and perhaps slightly altered to fit into the timelinestory arc hereIn `Made of Meat' we are introduced to Major Peel an Australian intelligence officer Over the next few stories we get to know him uite well Conyers doesn't write mythos stories for their own sake; the trappings are always at the service of clever plotting believable character development snappy dialogue and tightly written action scenes The major is sent to look in on the Tcho Tcho people in Southeast Asia with the help of a British MI6 Agent James Figgs a jaded hard bitten and enigmatic figure than the duty driven Major Peel Someone in some government wants samples of Shub Niggurath spawn to develop into weapons`To What Green Altar' introduces us to NSA agent Jack Dixon He and the ubiuitous Figgs go to Siberia on the trail of an insane cult that wants to invoke Cthugha in the middle of the Vatican The Tunguska event from 1909 is finally explained The aims of the cult are depressingly plausible in the modern world The first two sections of this are my favorite prose by Sunseri`Impossible Object' is my favorite story by Conyers What a wonderful dilemma to have What is your favorite story by David Conyers It is the best story in the book and also perhaps the most Lovecraftian The Australian government has uncovered an incredibly ancient city and found the title object in one of the rooms of this city The Impossible Object is different to all observers as well as mysterious and freuently deadly Major Peel is on the scene and figures out what it must really represent Tautly written suspenseful and an edgy ending Definitely worth a few rereads I originally read it in its magazine version and am glad to have it in this collection`False Containment' is another winner from Conyers probably my next favorite here I already reviewed when I wrote about the anthology Horrors Beyond I would rather have seen a different new story as this is already in a book we are all likely to own but I see the appeal to having all the Major Peel stories in one collection I think there has been a very slight modification inclusion of a sentence or two to allow `Impossible Object' to better fit into the story arc This was a pity as my view in hindsight is that it lessens the power of the ending of `Impossible Object'After these stories we get into the main story arc of the anthology `Resurgence' shows us some how or other shoggoths are loose from their prison in Antarctica and are swarming to the mainland including Australia A few sentences are a nod toward Tim Curran's Hive and perhaps portend that Mr Curran may be joining forces with the authors in future projects Agent Dixon is point man against a shoggoth that is scouring Isla de los Estrados near Argentina while Major Peel must try to fend off its twin approaching Australia What would it take for you to go nuclear Unfortunately Major Peel is caught in the radioactive aftermath of the saving of Sydney Also unfortunately a famous landmark almost a world wonder had to be sacrificed`Weapon Grade' shows how the military applications of extra dimensional gates and shoggoth technology are too tempting to resist and how far the cloak and dagger men of any government are willing to go to get an edge Major Peel shows his true dedication to duty as well as resourcefulness as he tries to prevent the theft of shoggoth secrets while dying of radiation poisoning`The Spiraling Worm' brings all the players together including Joss Plenary of the NSA The setting is the Congo where a grotesue band of rebels cultists have perhaps kidnapped a special forces Major Charles Ackerman Figgs Peel and Dixon and a small army of SEALs and special forces set out to track him down in the trackless jungle The Spiraling Worm is one of the many names of Nyarlathotep as ever trying to open holes in reality for Cthulhu et al to stepslither through This was the longest story in the book and the culmination of some pretty remarkable story telling as two talented authors combine their skills and characters While I liked it a few details bugged me First of all there was a very small amount some lecturing about the mythos pantheon something that never jazzes me I had some issues with a gang rape scene although it was suitably horrific and not gratuitously specific I cannot argue with it but I did not like the denouement of agent Figgs Maybe that's too harsh; rather I liked him the way he was before the end of the story At 100 pages this is maybe a novella It was necessary to have a story of some length to be able to tie all the plot threads together but it did miss some of the snap that made the other stories such corking good reads Finally at the very end Peel Dixon and Plenary decide to form an agency to try to fend off mythos type threats similar to Stross' Laundry or to Delta Green and the way this was done seemed a bit pat I guess it's too easy to be a critic; `The Spiraling Worm' the story all in all was a very satisfying readSo that's about it All in all I give The Spiraling Worm a rave Two skilled authors at the height of their mythos story telling power give us the Lovecraftian smash of the summer of 2007 See if it doesn't keep you reading way past your bedtime like me Highly recommended Can't wait for the seuel

This is my biggest gripe about the book I got the special edition hardcover and while it is a nice cloth bound book it does not have a slipcover and thus no artwork Man did that peeve me I guess I should have noted this before I bought it Now I am left to wonder if I should buy the soft cover tooHere are the contentsIntroduction CJ HendersonMade of Meat Conyers Originally published in Temple of Dagon revisedTo What Green Altar Sunseri newImpossible Object Conyers Originally published in Dreaming in R'lyeh #2False Containment Conyers Originally published in Horrors BeyondResurgence Sunseri newWeapon Grade Conyers newThe Spiraling Worm Sunseri and Conyers newAfterwardAbout the AuthorsSpoilers may follow so stop reading if that bothers youFirst of all the Introduction and Afterward are very entertaining and also very useful in getting a handle on where the authors are coming from Best of all they let us now a follow on volume with the characters from this book is in the works already and CJ Henderson will be contributing some stories I keep saying we are in the golden age of mythos fiction The first three stories by Conyers were not written with this book of linked stories in mind Instead Mr Conyers was creating Major Harrison Peel developing his character and stretching his wings in this particular subgenre After Conyers ad Sunseri decided to collaborate on The Spiraling Worm the original Peel tales were ordered and perhaps slightly altered to fit into the timelinestory arc hereIn `Made of Meat' we are introduced to Major Peel an Australian intelligence officer Over the next few stories we get to know him uite well Conyers doesn't write mythos stories for their own sake; the trappings are always at the service of clever plotting believable character development snappy dialogue and tightly written action scenes The major is sent to look in on the Tcho Tcho people in Southeast Asia with the help of a British MI6 Agent James Figgs a jaded hard bitten and enigmatic figure than the duty driven Major Peel Someone in some government wants samples of Shub Niggurath spawn to develop into weapons`To What Green Altar' introduces us to NSA agent Jack Dixon He and the ubiuitous Figgs go to Siberia on the trail of an insane cult that wants to invoke Cthugha in the middle of the Vatican The Tunguska event from 1909 is finally explained The aims of the cult are depressingly plausible in the modern world The first two sections of this are my favorite prose by Sunseri`Impossible Object' is my favorite story by Conyers What a wonderful dilemma to have What is your favorite story by David Conyers? It is the best story in the book and also perhaps the most Lovecraftian The Australian government has uncovered an incredibly ancient city and found the title object in one of the rooms of this city The Impossible Object is different to all observers as well as mysterious and freuently deadly Major Peel is on the scene and figures out what it must really represent Tautly written suspenseful and an edgy ending Definitely worth a few rereads I originally read it in its magazine version and am glad to have it in this collection`False Containment' is another winner from Conyers probably my next favorite here I already reviewed when I wrote about the anthology Horrors Beyond I would rather have seen a different new story as this is already in a book we are all likely to own but I see the appeal to having all the Major Peel stories in one collection I think there has been a very slight modification inclusion of a sentence or two to allow `Impossible Object' to better fit into the story arc This was a pity as my view in hindsight is that it lessens the power of the ending of `Impossible Object'After these stories we get into the main story arc of the anthology `Resurgence' shows us some how or other shoggoths are loose from their prison in Antarctica and are swarming to the mainland including Australia A few sentences are a nod toward Tim Curran's Hive and perhaps portend that Mr Curran may be joining forces with the authors in future projects Agent Dixon is point man against a shoggoth that is scouring Isla de los Estrados near Argentina while Major Peel must try to fend off its twin approaching Australia What would it take for you to go nuclear? Unfortunately Major Peel is caught in the radioactive aftermath of the saving of Sydney Also unfortunately a famous landmark almost a world wonder had to be sacrificed`Weapon Grade' shows how the military applications of extra dimensional gates and shoggoth technology are too tempting to resist and how far the cloak and dagger men of any government are willing to go to get an edge Major Peel shows his true dedication to duty as well as resourcefulness as he tries to prevent the theft of shoggoth secrets while dying of radiation poisoning`The Spiraling Worm' brings all the players together including Joss Plenary of the NSA The setting is the Congo where a grotesue band of rebels cultists have perhaps kidnapped a special forces Major Charles Ackerman Figgs Peel and Dixon and a small army of SEALs and special forces set out to track him down in the trackless jungle The Spiraling Worm is one of the many names of Nyarlathotep as ever trying to open holes in reality for Cthulhu et al to stepslither through This was the longest story in the book and the culmination of some pretty remarkable story telling as two talented authors combine their skills and characters While I liked it a few details bugged me First of all there was a very small amount some lecturing about the mythos pantheon something that never jazzes me I had some issues with a gang rape scene although it was suitably horrific and not gratuitously specific I cannot argue with it but I did not like the denouement of agent Figgs Maybe that's too harsh; rather I liked him the way he was before the end of the story At 100 pages this is maybe a novella It was necessary to have a story of some length to be able to tie all the plot threads together but it did miss some of the snap that made the other stories such corking good reads Finally at the very end Peel Dixon and Plenary decide to form an agency to try to fend off mythos type threats similar to Stross' Laundry or to Delta Green and the way this was done seemed a bit pat I guess it's too easy to be a critic; `The Spiraling Worm' the story all in all was a very satisfying readSo that's about it All in all I give The Spiraling Worm a rave Two skilled authors at the height of their mythos story telling power give us the Lovecraftian smash of the summer of 2007 See if it doesn't keep you reading way past your bedtime like me Highly recommended Can't wait for the seuel

    The Spiraling Worm – Man vs The Cthulhu Mythosvon David Conyers und John SunseriThe Spiraling Worm ist schon formal ein spannendes Buch Die beiden Mythos Autoren David Conyers USA Call of Cthulhu Rollenspielautor und John Sunseri Australien legten mit diesem Band 2007 ihre ersten Romane vor – und gleichzeitig ihren ersten gemeinsamen Das Buch der Roman? setzt sich aus 7 Short Stories zusammen die eine gemeinsame Geschichte erzählen einen Plot Bogen aufspannen Personal und Orte und vor allem Bedrohungen wiederkehren lassenIm Fokus stehen der australische Major Harrison Peel und der NSA Agent Jack Dixon Die beiden werden – teils alleine und in zwei der Stories gemeinsam – mit den unverständlichen Mächten des Mythos konfrontiert bekämpfen diese mit Hand und Speer Pistolen und Atomwaffen aber vor allem mit klarem Verstand und überlegenem Intellekt Mit dem also was den verrückten Kultisten und hirnlosen Monstren der Gegenseite fehltDer Band beginnt mit einer schmutzigen kleinen Story über Tcho Tcho Terroristen Conyers und einer actiongeladenen Geschichte die Cthuga Artefakte als Geheimwaffe vermeintlich islamistischer Terroristen einführt Überhaupt spielt Terrorismus bekämpfung als Betätigungsfeld von Geheimdiensten und Militär eine prominente Rolle wodurch einige Geschichten auch eine kleine politische Dimension entfaltenApropos entfaltete Dimensionen Zwei Stories The Impossible Object und Weapon Grade könnte man wohl als „metaphyische Krimis“ bezeichnen The Impossible Object macht dabei leider den Fehler zu viel zu erzählen und zu beschreiben zu wenig zu zeigen Das tut der Faszination aber keinen Abbruch die man bei der Konfrontation mit dem unmöglichen Objekt erlebt Weapon Grade wartet dagegen mit der spannenden Idee auf Shoggoths seien nur in unserer Dimension als auf drei Dimensionen gefaltet horrende Monster – in ihrer Heimatwelt dagegen nur kleine Schlamm Pools angelegt von den Elder Things Der Assassinen Geheimdienst Plot in dieser Story allein macht das ganze Buch lesenswertUmweltkriminalität illegale Müllentsorgung durch Wurmlöcher etwa ist ein Thema von False Containment das leider in Resurgence nicht fortgeführt sondern durch eher langatmige Schilderungen von Atomschlägen gegen Shoggoths abgelöst wirdIm Finale begegnen die Protagonisten Peel und Dixon dann einem ehemaligen Weggefährten der durch ein mächtiges Artefakt von Nyarlathothep verführt und verderbt wurde Diese Story hat wieder den schmutzigen Stil der Dschungelkulisse die auch in der ersten Geschichte beschworen wurde Getrübt wird dieser fulminante spannende Abschluss in meinen Augen nur dadurch dass Dixons Frau Jessica viel zu wenig lebt – aus diesem Charakter hätte man deutlich mehr machen könnenDie beiden Autoren beschließen das Buch mit einem Nachwort in dem sie erklären wie sie zu ihrem Projekt kamen Irgendwie erinnert The Spiraling Worm ja zwangsläufig an Lovecrafts eigenes Schaffen das mit dem Werk diverser anderer Autoren verknüpft war – eben durch gemeinsame Artefakte Bücher Personen Monstren Götter Fazit Wer actionreiche weniger horrorbasierte Mythos Stories mag – eher Delta Green als Call of Cthulhu um es in Rollenspieltermen auszudrücken – oder wer Schreibexperimente wie kollaborative Autorschaft und geteilte Erzählkosmen mag kommt hier voll auf seine Kosten Ich würde gerne mehr solcher Experimente lesen

    A fair Lovecraftian collection Modern non pastiche work that improves as it goes along My only complaint is that the characterization is weak
