New release! At the Mountains of Madness: Requiem by S. Lawrence Parrish

S. Lawrence Parrish is known for some rather interesting approaches to horror and science fiction. He’s done it again, with At the Mountains of Madness: Requiem.

“Through ageless eons, the Dreamer sleeps
In lost R’lyeh, where Shoggoths creep
Where every moment they serve in dread
Of what dreams convulse the sleeping head. . .”

Research scientists in Antarctica find no evidence of global warming. Instead, they discover a truth truly terrifying. Frozen secrets. An ancient evil. A new religion. A clash of skeptics and believers.

    I have loved all of the previous books, but unfortunately only 2 chapters is have. Stopped.. the author has used This novel to put shit on people who believe in climate change due to the population and the way we a causing the problem.. 95 % of scientists are wrong and he is using his character to push his anti climate change barrow.. what a shame.. maybe I am wrong and later in the book the character in the book realises his mistake, but I couldn’t keep reading.. it is a bit like 10% think there was no holocaust and pushing it as the truth.. looking forward to the next audio work as I do love his style of writing and presentation, but not this one

    Disappointing, Rod. One must never equate the character with the author. Lovecraft is about uncertainty. Skepticism is uncertainty, an ongoing search for truth. Riley Decker is one of the 5% of scientists who questions the conclusions of current climate change research, just as I would imagine some scientists would question the credibility of the Necronomicon. . . despite Dread Cthulhu rising from his eons of dark and restless dreams to wreak havoc on humanity! My next tale will also be Lovecraftian: The Old Ones. It is epistolary, and I’m having fun with it. Give me a few years to finish writing, recording, and producing. . . .

    An interesting adventure tale. I rather enjoyed the anti-climate-change diatribes. However, there’s one particular “thing” that I found really off-putting, and that was the “noise/sound” of the “monster”. It was horribly done…childish, and inane…not the least bit scary or horror inducing. That sound, and its repetition really took away from my enjoyment of this book. If the author uses a “strange horrifying sound” in future writings, I hope that he will create something that is far better than the one used here.

    You may want to read Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness to understand why I included that annoying sound. . . .

    Ok, I have been told that this is a reasonable audiobook but at least to chapter 4 or 5 it’s a blatant screed against anthropogenic climate change with no other reason for being. The author sets up straw man arguments while not adding to the story at all. The lead character is quite an unlikable lout who KNOWS all his opinions are right. It’s really badly setup with all the literary artistry of chick tracts. the sound “Tekilili” actually is from Lovecraft by way of Poe, “A Narrative of A Gordon Pym” and should have been executed better or not done at all.

    Have listened to your audio books over and over again, you are really good at what you do!

    Another embarrassing attempt from a hack author. I’m not even going to get into his silly attempts at being a climate change denier, though I have to wonder how Steve Parrish didn’t bag a position in Trump’s cabinet with all the bs he spews! Let me just say that there’s more than one reason Steve Parrish never made it in the big leagues. You’ll probably enjoy this story more if you spend your time trying to point out all of the reasons instead of trying to follow what Steve Parrish wants you to believe is a “plot”. Childish. 0/10.
