Product description


"This volume takes Lovecraft's ideas and truly pushes them in directions the author never could have conceived."

"UNABASHEDLY HORRIFIC . . . A PERFECT TRIBUTE TO H. P. LOVECRAFT . . . [The stories] range from Poppy Z. Brite's lucid and magnificent 'Are You Loathsome Tonight?' to the elaborate, quintessentially Lovecraftian construction of 'A Victorian Pot Dresser' by L. H. Maynard and M.P.N. Sims."

"H. P. Lovecraft's dark mythology continues to fascinate and inspire writers. A stellar result of this inspiration is collected in The Children of Cthulhu."
--The Denver Post
