Arguably H.P. Lovecraft's greatest work. The prose is dense, like many of Lovecraft's other works, but the patience needed is well worth it. Cthulhu is one of the best monsters of all time, a mammoth figure comparable to Satan and Dracula.
When A.W. Exley isn't deciphering hieroglyphs or riding her horse sidesaddle, she is thinking up plots for her next best-seller. Nefertiti's Heart is a beautiful mixture of all Exley's passions in life, set in a Steampunk society, featuring a very Egyptian theme. As our Author of the Day, she chats with us about her fascination with Egypt, why she picked an alternate universe for Nefertiti and how she shaped the book.
