We're pretty picky about the items we stock in our store. But when we saw this we realized instantly it was the kind of product we liked and that you would like. It's not the first Lovecraftian cookbook in the world, but it's the first to succeed at the strange goal of filling a Lovecraftian tome of elder lore with some fun and funny recipes that would be fun to eat.
There's sections for Cocktails, Soups, Salads, Entrees and Desserts, featuring toothsome gems like the Gin & Miskatonic, Atlach-Nachos, The Sandwich Horror, Elder Thing Parmagiana, Yogsicles and many, many more. Best of all though, while carrying the momentum of a wild barrage of Lovecraftian food puns, the recipes are all written out in a bizarre but executable style and many of them sound darned tasty.
The new 2nd edition of The Necronomnomnom is hardbound, handsomely finished with gold and copper inks on the cover. The inside has the look of an ancient grimoire with stained backgrounds and teems with marvelous illustrations by the very talented Kurt Komoda. The recipes themselves are built on well-considered Lovecraftian puns, but they are written out by Mike Slater with a kind of manic care that the HPLHS deeply appreciates. The new edition is a tad smaller than the first edition and it's also substantially less expensive. 2nd Edition, hardbound, 8.5"x10.3", 200 pages, containing about 50 recipes.
