Overview

That Darn Squid God by Nick Pollotta, James Clay

In the year 1881, the moon suddenly begins to turn around and reveal its long-hidden darker side to the startled world. While most of Humanity finds the event fascinating, two British explorers know the horrible truth. The rotating moon is the legendary sign that foreshadows the return of a prehistoric demon, the monstrous destroyer of Atlantis, an unkillable colossus known only as the deadly, dreaded Squid God. Racing around the world, and against the clock, Prof. Einstein and Lord Carstairs battle the fanatical legions of Squid God worshippers in a valiant effort to stop the ghastly rebirthing ceremony and keep the demonic mollusk locked in the stygian depths of its unearthly lair. Authors Nick Pollotta & James Clay have lovingly crafted a splendid Fantasy/Adventure, heavily laced with their classic off-the-wall humor, and sprinkled with a light dusting of parody toward the legendary works of H.P. Lovecraft, H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and just about everything else from the golden glory days of Victorian England.

Welcomand thanks for joining my chatroom. Here we have fun by ranking your response helpfulness and into 3 levels: level one is newcomer, level 2 is moderater, and level 3 is admin. Im an admin because i made the room. If you end up being a moderater, you get to put a tag my your closing on messages. Ex. <mod>attackdog101 See what i mean? If your admin your tag will be 'admin'. If your a moderater you will watch for inapropiate things and you will be able to ban them and kick them. Admins will be able to post notices and stuff and promote newcomers to moderaters. Now i need an admin, so the first one to make the rules in a comment will be the first admin. And they need to remember the rules because they need to stay up on the board for newcomers to read. If u want to be a moderater you need to write a comment before any other mod. appliers. You will write the message of the day EVERYDAY!! so to apply you need to write the firsr motd. NOTICE! Moderaters cannot promote newcomers or ANYONE!!!!

After finding the truth concerning the mysteries of Noah's Ark proves to be more trouble than it was worth, Victorian scientists and adventurers Felix Einstein and Lord Carstairs move onto more serious matters. It would appear that the world could be ending based on the climatic chaos that has reached a global scale. When the two intrepid gents learn that a secret cult attempting to bring the squid god back into the world and that is why mute animals now can sing, dogs howl at the sun and the snow has turned blue, they know they must stop it. Leaving Einstein's valiant niece Mary and their cook, Katrina, in charge, the two friends take off on a globe trotting adventure that moves from the hidden broom closets of the Vatican to the Flying Dutchman to the Bermuda Triangle before coming to a violent, and hilarious climax in London. ................. If you enjoy Robert Asprin's Myth novels or Piers Anthony's Xanth ones, then give this a shot. The scene on the Dutchman alone makes it worth your time.
