Orne Library

The three story building known as the Orne Library is a replacement to the former structure by the same name that was destroyed in 1878 of circumstances that not everyone is clear on. It currently contains the entire Orne collection and over 400,000 books, some of which are more rare than any contained in the libraries at Cambridge or Boston. The contents of the Library are from a wide variety including modern reference materials to obscure tomes held within the Special Collections or artifacts in the Vault. Some of these documents pertain to old New England controversies such as the Salem Witch Trials. You will usually find student help in the halls of the Library as students take jobs offered by the administration.

PYRAMID OF THE SHOGGOTHS by Mark McLaughlin & Michael Sheehan, Jr. FREE on Kindle Unlimited:
US: www.amazon.com/dp/B07VRXF8XX/
UK: www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07VRXF8XX/

PYRAMID OF THE SHOGGOTHS, a Lovecraftian novelette, is a modern-day sequel to H.P. Lovecraft's novella, "At The Mountains Of Madness." This Kindle release also includes “The Black-And-White House,” a tale of The King in Yellow.

In “Pyramid Of The Shoggoths,” Miskatonic University instructor Omar Vardek is given a rare book by his assistant Chrystal. Through the book, he discovers the true location of the burial chamber of Queen Nerfertiti. Omar and Chrystal begin an adventure that takes them to a strange subterranean realm in Africa.

There they meet Balyphus, the last Elder Thing remaining on Earth, and his inhuman companion, the British ghoul Williams. They soon learn that Williams isn’t the Elder Thing’s only friend. Balyphus has created a troop of rampaging shoggoths that can destroy anything in their path – including human weaponry.

In “The Black-And-White House,” a young writer named Lewis decides to escape from noisy neighbors. He rents a secluded little house and for the first time in years, he is able to enjoy peace and quiet. But soon, he discovers that he is not alone in the house. An author who had once lived in the house never really left, and he wants Lewis to help him with an impossible task: writing a sequel to the accursed book, The King In Yellow, which drives anyone who reads it insane.

Mark McLaughlin is the author of BEST LITTLE WITCH-HOUSE IN ARKHAM and EMPRESS OF THE LIVING DEAD. McLaughlin and Sheehan have also co-authored the Kindle collections, THE ABOMINATIONS OF NEPHREN-KA, THE HORROR IN THE WATER TOWER, THE BLASPHEMY IN THE CANOPIC JAR, SHOGGOTH APOCALYPSE, THE RELIC IN THE EGYPTIAN GALLERY, THE CREATURE IN THE WAXWORKS, THE TESTAMENT OF CTHULHU, STAINLESS STEEL SARCOPHAGUS, and THE IDOL IN THE HEDGE MAZE.
