Arkham Edge, a new production team in Charleston, SC, are attempting to create the first web series based around H.P. Lovecraft's recurring character Randolph Carter. The Kickstarter can be found at


The series follows weird fiction writer Randolph Carter, who has forgotten the lessons learned from his adventures and now continues his work as an unpopular author. His only profitable series is the Kadath Cycle, a series of books documenting his time in the Dreamlands and sold as fiction.

Disinterested in the world around him and unable to return to the Dreamlands, Carter finds himself willingly falling into trouble after discovering a strange cult and possibly a grand, cosmic conspiracy. Seeking meaning in life, Carter attempts to solve this mystery with the help of his publicist Laura and old friends Joel Manton and Harley Warren.

Admittedly, this is a bit of shameless self-promotion, but if there's an audience for a project like this, it's probably on io9. Plus, every $18 donation gets a picture of themselves as a naked cartoon cat—even if the Kickstarter fails!
