I have a few wish list requests for anyone who is willing.  The first is a
mystery novel, and I'll include its synopsis at the bottom of the list.  The
other books are all related to H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos, or the
Hastur stories of Robert W. Chambers and others.  Thanks to anyone willing
to take these on.
Obedience by Will Lavender
The Hastur Cycle by H. P. Lovecraft, Robert W. Chambers, R. M. Price (2006)
The Xothic Legend Cycle by Lin Carter
The Tsathoggua Cycle: Terror Tales of the Toad God by Clark Ashton Smith
Arkham Tales: Stories of the Legend Haunted City by William Jones
The Complete Pegana by Lord Dunsany
The New Lovecraft Circle by Robert M. Price
The Lovecraft Lexicon: A Reader's Guide to Persons, Places and Things in the
Tales of H.P. Lovecraft  by Anthony Brainard Pearsall

From the Book Jacket of Obedience
When the students in Winchester University's Logic and Reasoning 204 arrive
for their first day of class, they are greeted not with a syllabus or texts,
but with a startling assignment from Professor Williams: Find a hypothetical
missing girl named Polly. If after being given a series of clues and details
the class has not found her before the end of the term in six weeks, she
will be murdered.
At first the students are as intrigued by the premise of their puzzle as
they are wary of the strange and slightly creepy Professor Williams. But as
they delve deeper into the mystery, they begin to wonder: Is the Polly story
simply a logic exercise, designed to teach them rational thinking skills, or
could it be something more sinister and dangerous?
The mystery soon takes over the lives of three students as they find
disturbing connections between Polly and themselves. Characters that were
supposedly fictitious begin to emerge in reality. Soon, the boundary between
the classroom assignment and the real world becomes blurred-- and the
students wonder if it is their own lives they are being asked to save.
