Philip Kenan is battling a series of bad jobs—and the monsters from H. P. Lovecraft’s fiction go with him. Philip’s first confrontation with the monsters set in motion a bizarre chain of events that finally sent his girlfriend Amelia packing. Now the battle rages from the dank, cramped sweatshop of Philip’s former place of employment, Ralph’s One-Day Resumes, to the gleaming, deadly corridors of corporate giant Pelidyne. Can he save Amelia this time, or will the monsters triumph and consign all humanity to an existence of grim servitude?
Jack Lowry, ex-college professor, awakens in Hurley Memorial Hospital’s shabby detox unit. It is not the first time his alcoholism has brought him here. Jack’s fellow patients are not people he would ordinarily seek out, but one, a pretty girl named Kerry Beckett, instantly assaults Jack’s heart. Enter The Clear, a cult whose leader has some very peculiar theories about alcoholism as an ancient alien curse. According to The Clear, alcoholism is not a disease: it is a damnation. Alcoholics are the progeny of an ancient tribe called the K’n-Yan, an underground race who worshipped Tsathoggua…When Kerry disappears, Jack and his oddball cohorts must save her (and, incidentally, the whole recovering world) while contending with chaos, self-help, alcoholism, and—of course—monsters.
