Overview[edit | edit source]
Designed with an eye to expanding on the characters created for inclusion in Fantasy Flight's Mythos games, Arkham Horror Fiction began as a handful of novel-length publications of fiction (including a pair of trilogies) but has since expanded in scope to encompass an ongoing series of hardback novellas, each of which centres upon a specific character from their games, and a coffee table-sized book showcasing the associated artwork.
It should be noted that much of the content in these stories outright events which occur to minor characters during the course of the various games; for example, many of the Blights which feature in Arkham Horror were never driven insane by watching the play The King in Yellow.
