Join us today for the usual Lovecraft eZine Sunday Talk Show! As usual, I’ll be giving stuff away to random live viewers. Today, it’s three copies of Monk Punk & The Shadow of the Unknown, edited by Aaron J. French.
Today’s guests are the creators of Ice-Bound, a new game with Lovecraftian, horror, and mystery themes. It’s a very unique idea, actually, and we’ll learn more on today’s show.
An unknown writer dies alone in an unheated New York apartment, pieces of an unfinished novel strewn in fragments across hard drives and data sticks.
A professor leads an expedition to the legendary Carina Station, an abandoned polar base sinking into ice, layers of frozen history stretching down to unmapped depths. The expedition is her last chance.
A cunning publisher commissions an AI simulacrum of a long-dead author, to finish his famously incomplete masterpiece. The AI is neurologically identical to its human predecessor, but as a constructed sentience, has no human rights.
And a curious book begins appearing, stacked on street corners and left on buses: a real paper book, filled with glitched transmissions, contradictory drafts, distorted photos and vicious secrets. It’s a book only one person was ever meant to see.
Ice-Bound is a nested, recursive story inspired by writers like Borges and Nabokov and books like House of Leaves. The story is told through a digital app and a printed book, each dependent on the other to become complete.
