Short stories and the award-winning novel The Rules of Engagement by John Scott Tynes. 388 pages.
"Born of the U.S. government's 1928 raid on the degenerate coastal town of Innsmouth, Massachusetts, the covert agency known as Delta Green spent four decades opposing the forces of darkness with honor, but without glory. Stripped of sanction after a disastrous 1969 operation in Cambodia, Delta Green's leaders made a secret pact: to continue their work without authority, without support, and without fear. Delta Green agents slip through the system, manipulating the federal bureaucracy while pushing the darkness back for another day—but often at a shattering personal cost."
This is the End and the Beginning
Delta Green co-creator John Scott Tynes merges Lovecraftian cosmic horror with techno-thriller espionage in these four stories and a novel interconnected by a web of deceit:
THE CORN KING
An old warrior on a rogue operation is determined to call down the thunder one last time. But he's keeping a secret that may unlock a darker destiny.
“Entry One has been breached. Time to get this show on the road. They have no idea the kind of Hell I've prepared for them. May God have mercy on my soul.”
MY FATHER’S SON
A Delta Green agent with a mysterious past may learn more than he ever wanted to know when his current case leads where he never dared to go.
THE DARK ABOVE
In the face of madness and horror, two lonely Delta Green agents reach out to each other. Can they really afford such fragile bonds when the secrets of the night surf roll in?
THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
An agent’s disappearance pulls a Delta Green team into a vortex of horror in this novel of personal apocalypse. The secrets they uncover threaten to ignite a war between the Delta Green conspiracy and its bitterest enemy, Majestic-12 — secrets buried within time itself.
