I love monsters!
Anyone who knows me can confirm this. Ever since I was little, monsters have fascinated me. I think that’s why Steve Sullivan’s latest book “Dr. Cushing’s Chamber of Horrors” quickly became one of my favorites. I read the book in serial format as Steve released it via his Patreon page.
This book oozes with adventure, supernatural abilities, great characters, and, of course, monsters! What’s not to love?
I enjoyed the book so much that I worked with Steve to adapt the book into a roleplaying game supplement for Lester Smith’s D6xD6 rules system.
Sullivan’s novel is a fast and easy read with lots of intrigues and likable (and a few despisable) characters. It ends with a climatic scene worthy of your favorite Universal monster movie.
Of course, the plot also lent itself well to the RPG adaptation. I mean, who doesn’t love a globe-trotting adventure looking for potentially supernatural artifacts and encounters with strange creatures of myth and legend?
If you love horror roleplaying, monsters, and the supernatural, I cannot recommend the book (and of course the RPG) enough. Happy Halloween!
About the Book:
The monsters aren’t only in the museum!
Despite a lifetime of traveling with their father to collect strange artifacts, twins Topaz and Opal Cushing have never fully believed in monsters or the supernatural. Oh, sure, they share an eerie psychic connection, and their tarot card readings often come true, but… Werewolves? Vampires? Living mummies? None of those could be real. Those legends are just for rubes. Right?
Since the girls’ father has been away, though, strange things have been happening in the family’s little exhibit—and in the waxworks studio that shares their dilapidated Victorian mansion on the outskirts of London. Now, the twins’ dreams of a fun, romantic summer season are turning into a nightmare, and the monsters are running…
