Gordon first met the tentacle-faced one back in the late sixties when R’lyeh erupted through the floorboards of his bedroom in Scotland during one of its brief moments in the sun. Or rather, he thought it did, but it was just a nightmare after reading a book of H.P. Lovecraft stories. He’s been having nightmares again writing this book and re-visiting some scary moments from his teenage years. When he’s not writing about extra-dimensional beings and hiding beneath the blankets, he scribbles books on a variety of subjects, from art to travel and history to humour.
