About The Antarctic Express

Late one evening, young Danforth boards the mysterious Antarctic Express: an airplane bound for the South Pole. There, he probes the depths of the city of the Old Ones. As he flees in terror from the piping cries of the shuggoths, his mind suppresses the memory. But it will return on Christmas Eve…

The Antarctic Express is the second volume in the Mini Mythos series, designed to introduce a new generation of fans to H.P. Lovecraft's strange creations. Author Kenneth Hite used Lovecraft's story "At the Mountains of Madness" as the inspiration for this volume. Not-too-scary illustrations by Christina Rodriguez bring the tale to life.
