Overview

THIS IS THE END AND THE BEGINNING

Delta Green co-creator John Scott Tynes merges Lovecraftian cosmic horror with techno-thriller espionage in these four stories and a novel interconnected by a web of deceit:

THE CORN KING
An old warrior on a rogue operation is determined to call down the thunder one last time. But he's keeping a secret that may unlock a darker destiny.

FINAL REPORT
“Entry One has been breached. Time to get this show on the road. They have no idea the kind of Hell I've prepared for them. May God have mercy on my soul.”

MY FATHER’S SON
A Delta Green agent with a mysterious past may learn more than he ever wanted to know when his current case leads where he never dared to go.

THE DARK ABOVE
In the face of madness and horror, two lonely Delta Green agents reach out to each other. Can they really afford such fragile bonds when the secrets of the night surf roll in?

THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
An agent’s disappearance pulls a Delta Green team into a vortex of horror in this novel of personal apocalypse. The secrets they uncover threaten to ignite a war between the Delta Green conspiracy and its bitterest enemy, Majestic-12 — secrets buried within time itself.

Foreword by Kenneth Hite.

    Excellent entry into Delta Green!

    I typically don't write reviews, but I figured I would give this one a try. I admit I am an old school rpg gamer and had run into Delta Green as a series of game books based off the HP Lovecraft Cthulhu mythos. I always found the DG series interesting for its handling of the mythos and weaving of DG into real world history, places, and events. This book is an excellent entry into DG for any gaming fans or fans of HP Lovecraft who want a more modern and conspiratorial take on the mythos. This book is from what I understand a compilation of various DG fiction - short stories and a novel. The story is solid and relatively fast-paced. The main characters have enough depth to be distinguishable though towards the end, some of the characters didn't stick out in any significant way. There was some over-description of sexuality and violence in a couple of spots but overall the author handled mature themes in manner that was appropriate and didn't detract from the story. If I have one gripe (and it's not even really that but more of a question) its that nearly all of the major characters had some kind of romantic relationship with another major character. While this didn't detract from the book I do wonder what the purpose is of all of them having some kind of romantic connection. A couple of them made sense and seemed within the bounds of what might be expected. However, I wonder if Tynes was trying to contrast the stark horror of the DG universe with some humanity, or if he is a hopeless romantic - no offense Tynes! :) - who wanted to make sure everyone has someone to love. Regardless, if you like mythos style horror with a techno-thriller kind of modern flair then give DG: Strange Authorities a try! I also look forward to reading the "sequel" - Through a Glass Darkly" by Dennis Detwiller. Cheers!
