A picaresque adventure in the tradition of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen! In this stand-alone novel that can be fully enjoyed without having read William Makepeace Thackeray's classic Vanity Fair, his villainess Becky Sharp enters the Cthulhu Mythos as an agent of H.P. Lovecraft's Great Race of Yith! Follow Becky as she seduces, conspires and fights her way across the 19th century and into the 20th and along the way learn: 1) the circumstances of the unheralded first attempted Lidenbrock expedition to the center of the earth! 2) the secret parentage of Ann Darrow, bride of the fearsome Kong! 3) the apocalyptic origins and final fate of Queequeg's fetish and how it went from pagan idol among the wreckage of the Pequod to a dust-gathering paperweight at 221-B Baker Street! All these and other metafictional mysteries solved in: The Eldritch New Adventures of Becky Sharp. Featuring an introductory mini-essay by Mark Schultz, artist of The Coming of Conan the Cimmerian, writer of King Features Prince Valiant, and creator of Xenoxoic Tales!
