A Grim Sacrifice #WeWriWa #8Sunday #SnipSun #SnippetSunday


The Blurb
The fate of the Cosmos rests in the hands of an unlikely team of unusual friends. Will an exiled member of an ancient extraterrestrial race, a human ghost, and two ghouls be able to outfox an ancient evil and beat Nyarlathotep at his game before time runs out? This buddy story is the first in a series of New Cthulhu Mythos cliffhangers.

The Notes
Last time, Ketil recalled the day that he committed suicide.

The Snippet

Ketil set up a sharpened stave in the center of the pentagram. The stave was weighted at the bottom with a small block that was trussed to five spikes hammered into the stone at the star’s five points. The deranged supplicant then muttered an unearthly chant, bequeathing his blood to Mormo and her minions. He stepped up onto a platform and turned away from his ghoulish masterpiece in a wide stance; spreading his arms, he gave a final shout.

Iä! Iä! Mormo walachi beorth! Mi Mormo fhtagn! Inferna plaga vranech morpheo Mormo fhtagn! Iä! Iä, Nyarlathotep!”

  1. Truly nasty.
    Myself (wimp that I am) I would choose a pain and gore free exit if I could.

    1. Same, although I did have a lot of years of self-injury. My forearms have scars.

  2. Sorry to be the one to bring it up but I'm there are a couple of typos in your last paragraph. ;-)

  3. What language is that? Google Translate was no help.

    1. Sadly, Cthulhu has been a little slow at inputting the arcane language of the outer gods into Google Translate. He's dreaming in R'lyeh at the moment.

  4. Oooh, I don't know what he said, but I'm not sure it's good. :-) I'm not sure it's bad, either.

    Happy New Year, Cie! I hope 2021 brings good things to you and your son!


I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
