Lord Grandrith / Doc Caliban
A chapter of a projected novel with the tentative title The Monster on Hold.
This story is published online, see here.
DESCRIPTION:
Paul Spiteri, in his foreword: "In this fascinating snippet, Phil gives us an overview of the entire novel—the improbable merging of the pulp stylings of a Doc Savage story with the disturbing horror of Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythology. The excerpt presents an engrossing scene where Caliban encounters the truly supernatural for the first time since his frightening encounter with the 'Devil' in the last recorded chronological adventure of Doc Savage (Up from Earth's Center)".
