The Decade of the 1950's. While many places in the world are still recovering from the horrors of the Second World War, it is a good time for America. The nation is filled with pride after a hard-won victory, and the future never seemed brighter. And yet, never before have we faced a global threat as dire as the atomic bomb. Humanity has always waged war, but now we can eradicate all life on the planet. Enemies are everywhere, and there are dangers in our midst: devilish rock 'n' roll, morally corrupt books, and sinister comic books corrupt the minds of our youth. The dreaded Red Menace of Communism is poised to overthrow our government and strip-away all of our personal freedoms - and they must be stopped by any means necessary! Atomic-Age Cthulhu brings Lovecraftian horror to the postwar Golden Age with this anthology of tales of Mythos horror rooted in the 1950s.
