Description

Cúig ghearrscéal uafáis in aithris ar stíl an Mheiriceánaigh H. P. Lovecraft, a chruthaigh seánra nua scéalta uafáis—an tUafás Cosmach.

“Cuitiliú”: An raibh na Seanóirí Móra ag siúl na hÉireann riamh? Caitheann an scéal seo súil ar leathanaigh dhearmadta Chín Lae Amhlaoibh.

“Scairt na Réalta”: D’fhág a athair lámhscríbhinní rúndiamhra Gaeilge aige, agus nuair a léigh sé iad, mhothaigh sé na réaltaí ag glaoch air.

“An Leabhar Nimhe”: Níor theastaigh uaidh ach seanleabhair Ghaeilge leis an teanga a fhoghlaim, ach ansin, tháinig ceann chuige a raibh nimh ann.

“Péist an Mheán Oíche in Ikaalinen” atá i gcroí an bhailiúcháin seo—duais-scéal an fhealsaimh Fhionlannaigh S. Albert Kivinen, a chuir Lovecraft in aithne do léitheoirí fantaisíochta na Fionlainne. Sa scéal seo, tugann Kivinen cur síos ar arrachtach cosmach a rinne a nead in Ikaalinen, baile beag margaidh san Fhionlainn—fód dúchais an scríbhneora féin.

“Paappana, nó Ceol Erkki Santanen”: Tharraing ceol an chlub na céadta daoine óga go dtí bruachbhaile leathlofa. Ach ansin, bhí an dúchinniúint ag fanacht leo thíos sa siléar.

Five short stories inspired by the American writer H. P. Lovecraft, creator and acknowledged master of the genre of Cosmic Horror.

“Cuitiliú”: Did the Great Old Ones ever walk in Ireland? Did they have something to do with what happened at Devil’s Cliff? The forgotten pages of Amhlaoibh Ó Súilleabháin’s Diary may hold the answers.

“The Call of the Stars”: His father left him a packet of mysterious Irish manuscripts, and when Máirtín Mac Cuarta read them, he felt the stars call to him.

“The Book of Poison”: Finnish student Panu Höglund only wanted to read old books to learn the Irish language, but then one was sent to him that had an ancient poison in it.

“The Midnight Worm in Ikaalinen” is at the heart of this collection: a prize-winning story by the Finnish philosopher S. Albert Kivinen. In this story, Kivinen describes a cosmic monster who made its nest in Ikaalinen, a small market town in Western Finland—the home town of the writer himself.

“Paappana, or Erkki Santanen’s Music”: Club music drew hundreds of young people to the decaying suburb. But what black destiny was waiting for them in the cellar below?
