“‘The sun,’ said Henry. ‘It’s alive you know. The fire inside it. I’ve seen the fireflies that burn when they come down from the sun and the stars beyond. They come down and they burn everything they touch. Ash and cinders, that’s all they leave behind.’”
-Ghouls of the Miskatonic, Graham McNeill
Ghouls of the Miskatonic is the first novel in The Dark Waters Trilogy, written by New York Times Bestselling author Graham McNeill. Set in the bizarre world of Arkham Horror this novel depicts the mysterious struggles of Arkham’s inhabitants. Today, we’ll investigate the first chapter of this gripping tale of unknowable horror.
Something is rotten in the city of Arkham, Massachusetts. Oliver Grayson, an anthropology professor at Miskatonic University, attempts to return his former colleague’s sanity. Meanwhile his student, Amanda, dreams night after night of a figure beyond human conception stirring in the fathomless depths of the ocean. The appearance of butchered bodies around town brings a cast of familiar Arkham Horror characters into the investigation, just in time to witness a series of bizarre and unexplainable events that culminate in a cataclysmic discovery.
Meet Amanda, Rita, and Oliver, the first characters in a growing cast of individuals featured in Graham McNeill’s unsettling first chapter (pdf, 476 KB), now available for download from the support page.

Any chance of this becoming an audiobook?
I listen to those constantly.
If you want to see a hardcover, get as many people as you can to support this trilogy (If it is a good one) Then, at least we can tempt the powers that be to release a hardcover of the collected trilogy... Much easier sell than expensive costs for the three fledgling books...
I'm hoping there is a hard cover version made available too, too look good on my shelf with the rest of my books...
Will there be a hardback too or just the paperback?
Dorm roommates! Neat!
