Forces are moving in the cosmos. Mankind is on the verge of facing alien beings far beyond its kin. Is another call for Cthulhu just starting to begin? Human innocents are caught in the middle and not prepared for the real truth – which will drive them to the brink of insanity. What happens in a world of Lovecraftian darkness when a god is fated to die? What things are more vast than the Elder Gods? A series of stunning revelations leads to the discovery that the Call of Cthulhu just might be happening - again. And yet, there are greater forces at work in Lovecraft's universe, forces that do not even recognize the existence of man. Facing an abyss of darkness and insanity, is there a greater call than Cthulhu's?
Cthulhu mythos stories usually take place in fictional New England towns and are centered on the Great Old Ones, a fearsome assortment of ancient, powerful deities who came from outer space and once ruled the Earth. They are presently quiescent, having fallen into a death-like sleep at some time in the distant past. The most well-known of these beings is Cthulhu, who currently lies "dead [but] dreaming" in the submerged city of R'lyeh somewhere in the Southeast Pacific Ocean. One day, "when the stars are right", R'lyeh will rise from beneath the sea, and Cthulhu will awaken and wreak havoc on the earth.
Despite his notoriety, Cthulhu is not the most powerful of the deities, nor is he the theological center of the mythos. Instead, this position is held by the demon-god Azathoth, an Outer God, ruling from his cosmically centered court. Nonetheless, Nyarlathotep, who fulfills Azathoth's random urges, has intervened more frequently and more directly in human affairs than any other Outer god. He has also displayed more blatant contempt for humanity, especially his own worshippers, than almost any other Lovecraftian deity.
