It was decided that the best person to tell you about Byron Craft and “THE ALCHEMIST’S NOTEBOOK” project would be me…Byron Craft.

“THE ALCHEMIST’S NOTEBOOK” was originally a movie that was in preproduction several years ago titled, “The Cry of Cthulhu.” Unfortunately the project, like many good intentions, never came to fruition. My concept was an all new Cthulhu Mythos story to be put on film that would have done H.P. Lovecraft proud. At the time, there had been several poor attempts to place Lovecraft and his dreaded Necronomicon on the big screen. I had a notion to make an exciting, plus mind-boggling, Cthulhu movie that had the look and feel as if Lovecraft had stood behind the camera.

“THE ALCHEMIST’S NOTEBOOK” embodies the same vision i

The Arkham Detective Goes for a Ride

A fun introduction to my latest book... or, me having a bit of fun! It was a dark and stormy night.  Really it was!  There came a knocking at my door and who do you think was there, soaking wet?  The Arkham Detective!  He was not packing his gun and knife!  Thank God! 
 
“Hiya, Mack,” he acknowledged stepping across the threshold ruining my carpet.

“I thought I was done with you,” I complained.

The Alchemist's Notebook by Byron Craft
“When my avocation became my vocation I was set free.

Writing, at first, was a hobby that I loved dearly. It turned into a serious endeavor several years ago when I started writing screenplays. Unfortunately selling one out of every ten was not very lucrative. Success comes in many forms and my poor returns from screenplays matured my writing style, ultimately affording me the ability to author hundreds of magazine articles that generated a decent paycheck.

Fast forward to today and I have published my first novel “The Alchemist’s Notebook.”

It is a whirlwind story in the style of H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos that takes the reader from Vietnam to Innsmouth then Arkham and eventually to Europe wherein chaos and screaming terror awaits all living creatures on our planet.

I pledge to keep the reader on pins and needles hoping that sanity and normalcy will return.

“The Alchemist’s Notebook” and all future novels along with my blogs will deal exclusively with that genre.”

Don Webb At first this book looks like a standard Arkham House (Derleth Mythos) book circa 1980. Skillful weaving together of Lovecraftian themes -- but the books goes from an enjoyable (but not ground-breaking) read into a piece of imaginative genius. All Lovecraft/Derleth fans will like it from the beginning -- it is good, but halfway through it turns great. It works as horror, but it also works as good science fiction and as a well grounded novel of the post-Vietnam era. I hope to see further work from Mr. Craft
