Crossover Cover: Young Dillon in the Halls of Shamballah


Twelve-year-old Dillon is taken into the hidden city of Shamballah after his mother’s death, with the Warmasters of Liguria desiring to train him in combat. One of Shamballah’s sentries says, “Who would be shooting out here? There's no game and the Migou haven’t been seen in this region for two years now. Some say they’re in hibernation mode. And there’s not been so much as a sign of the Tcho-Tcho for going on five years.” Mr. Waingro of the Reardon Square Gang swears by Arioch. The trees seem to whisper to Dillon, “Our youngest sapling was ancient when the foundations for the pyramids of Leng were built.” Dillon already has several solid connections to the CU. The Migou (or Mi-Go), the Tcho-Tcho, and Leng are all associated with the Cthulhu Mythos. Arioch is one of the Dukes of Hell in Michael Moorcock’s Elric series, once again proving the CU is part of Moorcock’s Multiverse.

This novel is one of hundreds of crossovers covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!


  1. It's a shame that Derrick Ferguson died when he did.

    1. Derrick was a great guy. He always had praise for me and my ability to spot the references in his work, and frequently shared my posts on his Facebook timeline or the groups he ran there. It was a real shock to me when he passed. I miss him a lot.

  2. I had some interaction with him online and he seemed nice. And he was a good writer. I really enjoyed the Dillon novels.
