R.J. Ivankovic

Genius poet-artist R.J. Ivankovic is a Guest of Honour at Chaosium Con Australia, coming up on June 8-9 in Melbourne, Australia. 

To worldwide popular acclaim he's already gloriously reimagined two of H.P. Lovecraft's classic short stories: The Call of Cthulhu for Beginning Readers and Dagon for Beginning Readers. And now there's a third, At the Mountains of Madness for Beginning Readers!. This is R.J. Ivankovic's version of H.P. Lovecraft's 1936 tale about a doomed expedition to Antarctica, once again retold in anapaestic tetrameter.
