Adam Scott Glancy’s “Last Things Last”
With the Stone Skin Press Kickstarter in its climactic days, we’ll be highlighting the contributors and stories behind Shotguns v. Cthulhu, our anthology of action-packed Lovecraftiana.
In death as in life, absolute secrecy must shroud the life of a Delta Green operative. When a retired veteran of the Mythos-busting black agency breathes his last, mismatched agents Winifred and Grendel receive orders to conduct a routine clean-up procedure. But when they reach his home, they find he’s left more of a mess than they’re ready for.
No collection of action-oriented Cthulhuiana would be complete without a visit to the classic Delta Green milieu. Adam Scott Glancy brings all the tradecraft, ballistics lore and paranoid professionalism you’d anticipate from such arrangement. That he brings us a touch of pathos amid the dread might not be so expected.
A. Scott Glancy had played the Call of Cthulhu role-playing for decades before co-authoring Delta Green, a gaming supplement that married the gritty spy thrillers of John LeCarre with the cosmic horrors of H.P. Lovecraft. He joined Pagan Publishing in 1998 to work full time developing new Call of Cthulhu products. Delta Green remains his first love. Little is known of Mr. Glancy’s career plans prior to his joining Pagan Publishing, save for his cryptic references to the collapse of Soviet Communism as “the day those drunken Bolsheviks fucked my employment plans into a cocked hat.”
