Seattle, WA; Midnight House 2001. Fine in fine dj. 460pp. DARK SANCTUARY opens with Anthony Lovell, Sr., master of the ancient abbey of Kestrel and it's like names island off the Cornish coast, raving in madness and fear over the ancient family curse that "dwells in the bowels of the abbey rock". What has caused his madness is unclear, but it is obviously linked to something seen or experienced in Kestrel's ancient crypts. Lovell's sons is soon called back from London, and soon thereafter, John Hamilton, free-lance journalist and friend to the younger Lovell, makes his way to Kestrel as well. DARK SANCTUARY is a powerful novel of a man's struggle against the cosmic evil in the tradition of H.P. Lovecraft.

Virtually unobtainable for over sixty years, DARK SANCTUARY has topped the want list of many a collector. Limited to 460 numbered copies. Edited and introduced by D.H. Olson.
