This is a bit of an unusual Lovecraft collection. A good deal of these stories are far more mythos/Derelth inspired. The hard-core Lovecraft fan is likely to be put off adventure tales of folks racing for an elder sign to stop the unspeakable horror that the cultists are trying to raise.

That being said, there's a pretty wide range of Lovecraftian inspired stories, including several humor pieces. There's also a stated goal in the introduction on using lesser published stories (at the time of this collection, at least). I don't know if I entirely agree on the editor including some of the early work of several writers.

If you're a completist of the Lovecraft mythos, this is a must-buy. There's some very good stories I haven't seen elsewhere. If you wash your hands of anything with a Derelth influence, you're probably not going to like a good chunk of the stories in this collection.

If you're a fan of Lovecraft or some of his followers, I'd say this collection is certainly worth tracking down to borrow. Just feel free to skip over the stories that aren't in a style to your liking and you'll probably find a few that are. ( )

Price invokes Susan Sontag on camp, and Jacques Derrida on writing, to support his incisive view of what works and what doesn't work in contemporary Lovecraftian fiction.
The basic idea of a Mythos tale . . . is an interior skeleton like a mammal's, a frame on which to grow . . . It forms the baseline against which the new variations may be measured. It is not a denial of flexibility; it is something to be flexible with.
Preface by Ramsey Campbell, fascinating introduction by Price, beautiful cover art by Gahan Wilson, and 26 tales by Campbell, Lumley, Sutton, Wagner, Tierney, Lupoff, Ligotti, Burleson, Rainey and others. No overlap with previous anthologies. ( )

H. P. Lovecraft was the eerily prescient genius who first electrified readers in Weird Tales magazine. His tales changed the face of horror forever and inspired the bloodcurdling offerings of a new generation. These brilliant dark visionaries forge grisly trails through previously uncharted realms of mortal terror.   THE PLAIN OF SOUND by Ramsey Campbell: In the beginning they could find no source for the throbbing vibrations; in the end they could find no escape. THE HORROR ON THE BEACH by Alan Dean Foster: Along the coast of Santa Barbara, the mighty Pacific Ocean can no longer contain--or conceal--an ancient, insatiable evil stirring in its depths. THE KISS OF BUGG-SHASH by Brian Lumley: It mattered not how innocent the students' motives seemed; the demon had been summoned, and the price had to be paid--every last red drop of it. THE FISHERS FROM OUTSIDE by Lin Carter: A man obsessed with unlocking the secrets of a race older than time would not be disappointed--doomed perhaps, devoured possibly, but definitely not disappointed.   AND TWENTY-ONE MORE TALES OF FEAR . . .   THE STONE ON THE ISLAND by Ramsey Campbell THE STATEMENT OF ONE JOHN GIBSON by Brian Lumley DEMONIACAL by David Sutton THE SLITHERER FROM THE SLIME by H. P. Lowcraft THE DOOM OF YAKTHOOB by Lin Carter THE KEEPER OF THE FLAME by Gary Myers DEAD GIVEAWAY by J. Vernon Shea THOSE WHO WAIT by James Wade THE KEEPER OF DARK POINT by John Glasby THE BLACK MIRROR by John Glasby I'VE COME TO TALK WITH YOU AGAIN by Karl Edward Wagner THE HOWLER IN THE DARK by Richard L. Tierney THE WHISPERERS by Richard A. Lupoff LIGHTS! CAMERA! SHUB-NIGGURATH! by Richard A. Lupoff SAUCERS FROM YADDITH by Robert M. Price VASTARIEN by Thomas Ligotti THE MADNESS OUT OF SPACE by Peter H. Cannon ALIAH WARDEN by Roger Johnson THE LAST SUPPER by Donald R. Burleson THE CHURCH AT GARLOCK'S BEND by David Kaufman THE SPHERES BEYOND SOUND (THRENODY) by Mark Rainey… (more)
