Occult-tober continues with Blonde Godess of Tikka-Tikka by Chris L. Adams.
Adams continues his homage to the pulp magazines of the 1930s and 1940s with this quick novella about an adventurer who would fit well into a story by Robert E. Howard. The problem he encounters, however, is all H.P. Lovecraft and Adams does a very good job of building suspense as ancient horrors return to the earth. This is a fast moving tale which you’ll want to read in one sitting. There’s a tiny twist at the end of the story that gives some well-appreciated justification to the villains’ actions. Rumor has it that a sequel is nearing completion and l'm one of the fans shouting: "Write faster, Mr. Adams!"
