Ever wanted to be an Elizabethan superstar fighting cosmic horrors? Jonathan Green’s latest project, Shakespeare Vs. Cthulhu: What Dreams May Come allows you to experience just that, but you’ll have to rush if you want to back it on Kickstarter. 

Fans of Fighting Fantasy and similar game books may well know the line ‘You Are The Hero’ but in Shakespeare Vs. Cthulhu: What Dreams May Come, you are William Shakespeare himself. Alas, rather than writing a detailed treatise on why you aren’t secretly Sir Henry Neville or transcribing Love’s Labours Won onto some sturdy parchment, you are instead dealing with fishmen (inspired by both Lovecraft’s The Shadow Over Innsmouth and Shakespeare’s The Tempest),  as well as other horrors.

This book, designed to be played with dice or playing cards, comes from Jonathan Green, best known for his Fighting Fantasy books and the ACE Gamebook Alice’s Nightmare in Wonderland.
