Cthulhu and the Gun Lords of Terra is a work which incorporates elements of Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, with a number of my own ideas. Genre-wise, it incorporates elements of horror, science fiction, and fantasy.
The story concerns humans from Earth that have become stranded on a bizarre world. This transportation process being due to an accident involving ancient non-human technology. The place of the stranding is very possibly not in our own universe. Although the specific place that this world fits in the larger multi-verse is unknown due to the mysterious nature of the artifacts involved in the transportation. In any case, the unfortunate travelers were forced to survive in a fantastic world, amid colossal ruins of dead alien civilizations (along with some monstrous things that are still all too alive).
The events of this tale actually take place more than a century after the stranding, and thus the characters involved have had some chance to adapt to the circumstances. The characters are not really people of Earth anymore, although they still think of themselves that way.
The original nature of the venture was a military excursion. So, as time moved forward, things were organized along military lines. A situation somewhat like the samurai evolved, but with guns instead of swords. Military "noble houses" formed, giving rise to the "Gun-Lords" featured in the title.
