Still Thinking in 3 Dimensions?There are no hiding places.....
Faren, a shell-shocked Vietnam vet, and his wife, Janet, inherit an old country estate in Germany around the time that Faren's company transfers him to the same area. The two soon discover that the coincidence is really too good to be true.Their home rests near a timeworn door into the earth that is poised to open, exposing all to a horde of four-dimensional beings. Soon the line between our reality and that other space-time will be blurred forever, leaving mankind to be consumed by shrill, shrieking terror.Only one man has the slimmest chance to save our planet and, even though he has no place to hide, he prefers to run.

In the style of H.P. Lovecraft, Byron Craft brings the Cthulhu mythos and the Necronomicon back to life with "The Alchemist's Notebook" leading the reader through a terrifying Lovecraftian web of mystery, horror and apocalyptic doom.

  • Please note:  The Alchemist's Notebook has been reissued under the original working title: The CRY of CHHULHU.

About the Author:

"THE ALCHEMIST'S NOTEBOOK" was originally a movie that was in preproduction several years ago titled, "The CRY of CTHULHU."   Byron Craft has recently reissued this novel under the original title: The CRY of CTHULHU.  

Unfortunately the film project, like many good intentions, never came to fruition.  The concept was an all new Cthulhu Mythos story to be put on film that would have done H.P. Lovecraft proud. At the time, there had been several poor attempts to place Lovecraft and his dreaded Necronomicon on the big screen.  Byron had a notion to make an exciting, plus mind-boggling, Cthulhu movie that had the look and feel as if Lovecraft had stood behind the camera."THE ALCHEMIST'S NOTEBOOK" embodies the same vision in a literary format.

Craft has endeavored to pen this Cthulhu Mythos novel as it may have been done if H.P. Lovecraft was alive in the 21st century.  This is the first in a planned four novel mythos series dealing with mankind's internal, as well as, outward struggle to control his own destiny while encountering malicious beings from another time and space.I hope you will enjoy, in addition to being scared stiff, the first of the four part series..."THE ALCHEMIST'S NOTEBOOK."Cthulhu Lives!Byron Craft

Review:

At first this book looks like a standard Arkham House (Derleth Mythos) book circa 1980. Skillful weaving together of Lovecraftian themes -- but the book goes from an enjoyable read into a piece of imaginative genius. All Lovecraft/Derleth fans will like it from the beginning -- it is good, but halfway through it turns great. It works as horror, but it also works as good science fiction and as a well grounded novel of the post-Vietnam era. I hope to see further work from Mr. Craft.  

  • Don Webb, GoodReads.com
The Lovecraft references fly fast and furious and there are cool nods to many of Lovecraft's stories, without being an adaptation of any of them.
  • Charles R. Rutledge, Singular Points 
The story is highly imaginative, and written with unapologetic sophistication, although brilliant, it's not a casual read. If you want an intense one of a kind journey, steeped with wormholes and alien life forms, then by all means jump down Crafts rabbit hole.
