New Zealand--Aotearoa--Land of the Long White Cloud: the island remnants of the sunken continent of Zealandia. With its boiling geysers, active volcanoes, earthquakes, deep water fjords and lush forests of fern, these are realms once home to forgotten creatures like the giant Moa bird Dinornis. But there is something else... In this collection we find an Aotearoa with the proud history, myths, and legends of the Maori, and the impacts of the white settler's later presence, and the blended society that encompasses both, but we see the shadow of other things. Herein lies the cosmic horror of the Old Ones of the Cthulhu Mythos in an anthology featuring Lovecraftian tales from some of New Zealand's finest speculative fiction writers. Stay brave. Because here there be monsters.
