Necronomnomnom- A Book & Cook Event
Recipes and Rites from the Lore of H. P. Lovecraft
October 29, 6:30pm
Reading about the slime-covered, non-Euclidean ruins of the sunken city of R'lyeh or the squamous, tentacled deity who slumbers there would make anyone hungry. Starting with the puns and working from there, authors Mike Slater and Thomas Roache have summoned forth 50 funny, bizarre, and horrible dishes such as:
- The Deep Fried Deep One
- Nog Sothoth
- The Great Old Buns
- The Gin and Miskatonic
Like H. P. Lovecraft's Necronomicon, the legendary and forbidden book of the dead that is "alien to all sane and balanced readers," this cookbook contains many dark (but still delicious) secrets within its pages. The book comes infested with sanity-melting and mouth-watering illustrations, as well as annotations full of crazed discoveries and desperate warnings about the recipes that brave readers will undertake.
Author Mike Slater Mike Slater has been a fan of dark fiction since boyhood, reading H.P. Lovecraft and his contemporaries at what his parents considered too young an age. He has a passion for creating odd and compelling stories, games, and cookbooks from his home in Wrightsville. He draws inspiration from nights under the stars by the fires of Burnhenge, his hand-built sanctuary and psyche recharging station.
Mike will discuss the writing and research of this strange, literary, and possibly cursed cookbook, and samples of some of these unique delectables will be served. Only books purchased at Aaron's Books may be presented for signing.
