This massive collection of original stories and articles inspired by the 'Cthulhu Mythos' created by H.P. Lovecraft was published in Japan in 2002 as a two-volume set under the name Hishinkai. The list of contributing authors is a who's-who of Japanese horror fiction, featuring some of the finest writers in Japan today. In cooperation with Tokyo Sogensha, the Japanese publishers, and the anthology editor, Mr. ASAMATSU Ken, we are proud to present this second volume of the series. Here you will find new vistas of horror - some stories with shock you, others force you to look at your daily life through new eyes. Each story is accompanied by a thought-provoking introduction by Robert M. Price, the recognized master of the Mythos.

Review quote

"...a first rate collection with excellent translations. The overall fascination is in experiencing the H.P. Lovecraft-created mythos through Japanese sensibilities, which [...] are harmonious in some respects yet quite distinct in many others."--Adam Groves, I cannot say enough good things about this book. All of the stories are good with some being fantastic.--Brian M. Sammons, Book of Dark Wisdom These stories are very original, very well-realized, and damn scary! Highly recommended!--James Ambuehl
