Welcome to the Round Table for TALES OF THE AL-AZIF by myself, Matthew Davenport, David Niall Wilson, David Hambling, and David J. West. This is a discussion between the authors about what they thought while writing the book, what inspired them, and what they thought about everyone else's contributions.
I returned to the Harry Stubbs adventures with his second outing, Broken Meats, and here is what I have to say.
The Harry Stubbs Adventures are one of the best series to come out of the recent independent Cthulhu Mythos scene along with Matthew Davenport's Andrew Doran and my own Cthulhu Armagedon (just kidding--or am I?). They're the adventures of a WW1 veteran pugilist who continually comes into contact with the edges of the Cthulhu Mythos. Harry Stubbs isn't a guy who guns down Dagon or Deep Ones but usually ends up only encountering the barest whiffs of the eldritch and mostly deals with cultists--this keeps things mysterious as well as explains why he's kept most of his sanity intact.
