In the swirling sewers beneath Arkham, excavators uncover a crystalline formation that hints at dark events from the city’s past. As the discovery makes headlines, so too does a series of bizarre murders. With no leads, the Arkham police are always one step behind. Acting on a hunch, down-on-his luck former journalist Andy Van Nortwick reunites with adventurer Jake Williams and struggling filmmaker Maude Brion to unearth the truth. The trio know of the supernatural horrors that lurk beyond this world, and the reality haunts them. But time is running out and between them they must face their nightmares before the city of Arkham is lost to blood and chaos.
A Note From the Publisher
“Superbly written, deftly plotted and imbued with an absolutely first-rate cast of characters that easily retain the reader’s attention until the very last page, Cult of the Spider Queen is a highly-polished and deeply impressive slice of Jazz-Era horror.” - Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviewer, on Cult of the Spider Queen
“As unsettling and disturbing as anything that Lovecraft himself wrote… a complex, gripping roller coaster ride.” - Amazing Stories, on The Last Ritual

SA Sidor ties together action and horror in a story filled with thrills, anticipation, and plot twists as he proves he can compete with pulp fiction greats.
This was another wonderful entry in the Arkham Horror series, I was so hooked at the beginning of the book to the end. It had what I enjoyed from previous entries in the Arkham Horror and from the author. S A Sidor has a great writing style and had the same power as previous books that I had enjoyed. I look forward to reading more in this series and the author.
“Syrx-Crugoth. I have found thee at last. I live to serve thee, and thee alone. Now thine name is known unto me. Soon I pray to see your awful face, your unforgiving crown. Grant me thine cruel blessing. Imbue my acts with the coldness of your embrace as you have before.”
