Product description

Product Description

"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents."

The classic American horror author H. P. Lovecraft coined the term weird fiction in the 1920s. Even today, in our rational world of wonder, his legacy of cosmic horror slumbers on. Deep in the recesses of our unconscious minds, we suspect it to be the truth that we begin to glance the shape of true reality, and it is not to our liking. Not at all.

Modern science, with its experts and specialties, is a fragmentary thing. In this, it reflects the human mind. We keep our thoughts in boxes, broken into digestible shards. It is safer. Cosmic horror warns us that what we fondly imagine to be reality is just a thin skin of light and substance over endless gulfs of insanity. Gather too much knowledge, make the wrong connections, and the truth can no longer be denied.

The amazing tales lovingly collected in Cthulhu Lies Dreaming are fragments of that truth. Treat them with the caution that they deserve. Each will offer you glimpses behind the skin of the world, leading you closer and closer to the edge of the abyss. Knowledge may bring wisdom, but it also offers far darker gifts to the curious.

The truth is indeed out there and it hungers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of terrific content - a great value for stories that will stay with the reader for some time. 18 October 2016
By Jim P - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a very fine collection of stories by both veterans and newcomers of the Genre. The flow between stories was also carefully thought out it seemed. Some that especially stood out to me were the very creepy 'The Star That Was Not a Star' by Lucy Brady, 'Bleak Mathematics' by Brian Steele, 'Father of Dread' by Matthew Chabin, 'Isophase Light' by Daniel Chant, 'Seven Nights in a Sleep Clinic' by Saul Quint, and 'Cmothoa Cthulhii' by Gethin Lynes. Two especially nice stories that referred directly to HPL stories was the excellent 'Notes for a Life of Nightmares' by Pete Rawlik, and 'The Lullaby of Erich Zann' by G.K. Lomax.
There is plenty more great content to read.

A fantastic anthology, a really diverse-feeling treatment of HP Lovecraft's legacy updated and applied in much more modern literary forms. Very recommended.

I am biased towards anything Cthulhu-based, and the directions that myriad authors have taken the mythos really keep me engaged in reading the stories based on 1 of my all-time favorite authors! Keep imagining, dreaming and writing it down!
3.0 out of 5 stars Cthulhu Western 9 October 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This series was a western "The Good, the bad, and the Ugly". Some of the stories were great and I wanted the ideas to be unpacked more. Some felt unresolved. While others felt like felt like platforms for rants... .
