Miskatonic University professor Oliver Grayson is attempting to return his former colleague’s sanity. Meanwhile the sanity of his student, Amanda, is threatened by nightly dreams of a figure beyond human conception stirring in the fathomless depths of the ocean.

The Dark Waters Trilogy is a gripping new series from best-selling novelist Graham McNeill.
I hope they do the same for Free Fall. There's this token in the game that's not used for anything. Hmmm.
This article says "This offer excludes electronic copies...." so does that mean that we can expect ebook/kindle versions of the series? I hope so, as 90% of the books I buy are kindle versions. While a Arkham Horror ally card would be awesome, I'd much rather have a kindle version of the books.
I've seen articles about this, but I haven't read them because I figured I'd wait to read Call of Cthulhu books.
Today, I saw this article, and now that I know it has a redemption for a component for one of my favorite games, I decided to pre-order it.
Now that I'm going to get this, I have a question for those who have read Lovecraft's books and the other articles about this book. Does it seem that:
A. The author will closely follow Lovecraft's story (In which case, I'll want to read Lovecraft's books first)
B. The author will follow Lovecraft"s writings in some cases and contradict them in others (in which case, I'll still want to read Lovecraft's books first.
C. The author will use Lovecraft's settings and monsters, but there will be no reference to characters or events in his stories (in which case, I have no problem reading this book before Lovecraft's books, as it won't spoil anything in them)
Regardless of the nature of this series, when I do start reading Lovecraft's books, which should I read first? Is there a clear first book, is there a situation where a book printed after the first printed book is chronologically first in the story, or did Lovecraft write several miniseries, that have no connection other than antagonists they might have in common?
Haven't seen these kind of redemptions for a very long time. I wonder if they'll do the same for Free Fall?
