Crossover Cover: The Undercliffe Sentences


In Peter Cannon's story in this anthology, horror author Carl Dreadstone is the guest of honor at a fantasy convention in Brichester, England. Sauron is mentioned among Cthulhu Mythos deities such as Daoloth. Dreadstone recalls seeing Spinal Tap play in 1967. Carl Dreadstone was a “house name” under which several authors, including Ramsey Campbell, published adaptations of the classic Universal monster movies. Here, Dreadstone is a real person. Brichester is the setting of many of Campbell’s Cthulhu Mythos stories. Daoloth is also from Campbell’s Mythos fiction. Sauron is from J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. This story provides further proof that the legendary rock group Spinal Tap is in the CU.

This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! Much like its predecessors, this latest volume is an AUTHORIZED companion to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
