“Lovecraftian and Barker-esque... stunning truly.” - Steve Stred, Splatterpunk Award Nominated Author of Mastodon and The Stranger

What is Carcosa?


For Alan Chambers, a jobless loner, it’s the answer to his problems. Or so he thinks…

Rejected by family and friends, and soon-to-be homeless, Alan makes his last desperate bid to discover the truth of this miserable reality by journeying to an occult brothel where it’s said the worthy might obtain passage to this fabled land of Carcosa.


Proving one’s worth is more dangerous than Alan could have imagined.


Prepare for an erotic and horrifying journey into the universe of the Yellow King…


The Claw of Craving is the first Book of Lost Carcosa, an epic fantasy-horror that reimagines the astonishing mythos of Robert W. Chambers. Combining Clive Barker’s eroticism and fantasy with Stephen King’s pulse-pounding narrative, The Claw of Craving will please fans of Imajica, Weaveworld, The Dark Tower, H. P. Lovecraft, Eric LaRocca, and Alistair Rennie.

Praise for Joseph Sale's other series:

“What we have here is a totally original concept, a writer who is doing something new, a writer who has been forged in the flames like the One Ring.” -Ross Jeffery, Bram Stoker Award Nominated author of Juniper and Only The Stains Remain

“Dark, cerebral, and genre-bending.” -Brian Fatah Steele, author of Hungry Rain and Violation Hive

“The world-building is great, Joseph’s voice is hypnotic, and the character perspectives and backstories are wonderful.” - Austrian Spencer, author of The Sadeiest
