Description

For more than 80 years H.P. Lovecraft has inspired writers of supernatural
fiction, artists, musicians, filmmakers, and gaming. His themes of cosmic
indifference, the utter insignificance of humankind, minds invaded by the alien,
and the horrors of history - written with a pervasive atmosphere of
unexplainable dread - remain not only viable motifs, but are more relevant
than ever as we explore the mysteries of a universe in which our planet is
infinitesimal and climatic change is overwhelming it.
In the first decade of the twenty-first century the best supernatural
writers no longer imitate Lovecraft, but they are profoundly influenced by the
genre and the mythos he created. New Cthulhu: The Recent Weird presents
some of the best of this new Lovecraftian fiction - bizarre, subtle,
atmospheric, metaphysical, psychological, filled with strange creatures and
stranger characters - eldritch, unsettling, evocative, and darkly
appealing.

A fantastic collection of tales, told in voices ranging from Lovecraftian richness to modern slang. A worthy addition to Mythos literature.show more
