Required Reading at Miskatonic University
The Miskatonic University Novels by Lawrence King
Amid a backdrop of witchcraft, myth and science, “Mac” Mackenzie tries to make new friends, teach quantum physics, avoid formal dinner parties and, just possibly, save the world.
An unexpected opportunity
A secluded New England university campus
It’s a chance for a new life, right?
When would-be professor “Mac” Mackenzie accepts a job at Miskatonic University, he’s eager to get started. He has few prospects, over-due student loans and a desire to begin a career.
Mac is willing to leave friends and family behind for the right teaching position. But is this the right position? With its isolated location, medieval architecture and run-down reputation it’s not the most prestigious college.
And why is Miskatonic so interested in him?
A mysterious talisman
A missing grandfather and a stolen grimoire
You should always help your friends, right?
When the University Chancellor asks new professor “Mac” Mackenzie to take on a summer project, it’s hard for him to say “no.”
With promises of a summer salary, travel expenses and doing the university a favor, Mac and his best friend Ally pack up for a summer adventure. But are things as simple as they seem? Among the haunted hills of Vermont, anything might be possible.
And could Ally’s grandfather really be an alien?
