The best after The Burrowers Beneath

The Spawn of the Winds is my second favorite of Brian Lumley's immortal Titus Crow series. Titus Crow, for those unaware of it, is a series which follows the titular character or one of his supporting cast in their adventures against the Cthulhu Mythos. Unlike your typical Lovecraft heroes, they generally kick the Great Old Ones' asses rather than go insane and wet themselves. They're a very pulpy series with many homages to other franchises.

For example, Spawn of the Winds is a planetary romance where a Texas cowboy, Hank Siberhutte, is transported to the planet Borea where the natives are ruled by the monstrous Ithaqua. A resistance controlled by the beautiful redheaded sorceress Armandra is in resistance to the Great Old One but failing badly. Will Hank get the girl and punch the Great Old One's minions to submission? You bet he will! The only question is how and when as well as who dies in the process. This book was a big influence on Cthulhu Armageddon and another reason why it rocks.

If you want a rollicking good old timey adventure, this is a great story and Simon Vance does an amazing job bringing the characters to life.
