Jonathan L. Howard takes us into an updated version of THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE with After the End of the World. The world has been “folded” and this new Reality features the Nazis winning World War II and now embarking on a science project to make the alternations in Reality permanent. Who can stop the Nazis? The great-granddaughter of H. P. Lovecraft and a “dreamer” named Daniel Carter. Yes, these are the two characters from Howard’s first Lovecraft pastiche, Carter & Lovecraft from 2015 (you can read my review here).
The Necronomicon plays an important role in this thrill ride. If you put Raiders of the Lost Ark and At the Mountains of Madness in a blender, the result would be something very much like After the End of the World. GRADE: B
