Elder Gods, murder and true love – a feel-good romance.

A queer story combining a love of H.P Lovecraft horror, pulp magazines of the 1930s, Teenage Love and a rip-roaring soundtrack of yesteryear.

Lancelot and Hugo are two cultists, sacrificing innocent people to bring about the Eldritch Horror known only as Shaguaraka, who will end the world on its return.

And what better time than apocalypse to tell someone how you really feel? Will there be another day for these star-crossed lovers? Will they abandon their beliefs in the sight of true love? Will Shaguraka rise? Has someone reported the murders they committed in a public diner to the police?
