The Weird of Hali Companion
The seven novels of John Michael Greer's epic fantasy with tentacles, The Weird of Hali, and its four companion novels take place in an eldritch universe all their own, where the rules of H.P. Lovecraft's famous Cthulhu Mythos are stood on their head and the Great Old Ones get to tell their side of the story for once. The novels of the Haliverse roam across a vast landscape of space and time, reaching billions of years into the past and future and out through the unseen dimensions of anth and ulth to the border where curved time gives way to angular time...and beyond.
This definitive encyclopedia of the Haliverse includes all the people, places, and things -- squamous and otherwise -- that appear or are referenced in the novels, with entries ranging from Abdul Alhazred to Zosimus of Panopolis, along with a timeline of the Haliverse from the creation of the world out of cosmic dust 4.2 billion years ago to the final extinction of life on Earth 2.3 billion years from now. Readers who have enjoyed adventuring with shoggoths, Deep Ones, and the Crawling Chaos Nyarlathotep will find this guide to their universe indispensable.
