Original 1936 Astounding Stories, H.P. Lovecraft Magazine is Up for Grabs!

Red Wasp Design, the developers of the new Cthulhu-mythos horror/strategy RPG ‘Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land‘ have announced a competition where you could win an original 1936 copy of a pulp fiction magazine featuring the writing of H.P. Lovecraft.

The prize! Astounding Stories, March 1936

The prize is an original March 1936 issue of ‘Astounding Stories’ which features part of Lovecraft’s classic tale of Antarctic horror, At The Mountains of Madness. Not only that but it has the amazing cult illustrations of Howard V. Brown, who was commissioned to bring Lovecraft’s dark imaginings to life. To win this rare prize what you have to do is submit a review to the App Store (how to) or rewrite the text of an existing review (how to) of their game ‘Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land’ in the style of H.P. Lovecraft. Red Wasp’s designer Tomas Rawlings explains, “Lovecraft was famous for his distinctive writing style; long descriptions with lots of adjectives, using obscure words, plenty of indescribable and nameless things crawling through the text. He was an evocative writer, which is part of the reason why he is still so widely read today. We want people to go Lovecraftian-crazy in reviewing the game with gibbous, visceral pleasure and wild Bacchanalian abandon!”

If you want to win this bit of horror history then simply submit your review to the App Store then email a copy of the review, your App Store username (to prove it is your work) and which country store it was posted on to: contact at redwaspdesign dot com with the subject line ‘review competition’. The developers will feature the best entries on their site and pick the winner on Friday 9th March so get entries to us by the 8th March!

So dear reader, ’tis time to retire to the study, shut out the world, ink the writing quill and let the horrors of uncaring cosmic madness guide your fragile scratchings…

Please note: This competition is not open to employees of Red Wasp Design or their families, residents of Innsmouth or Deep One hybrids. Sorry😦
