The future is bright for fans of this oft-overlooked genre. These are some really well put together shorts, completely true to the title of the collection. Rawhead Rex!! Fantastic as always from C.B. For the fans on the lookout for up and coming talent, there is a virtual smorgasbord of it in this anthology. The ten-or-so page short, "Amsterdamned" killed it. Exactly the kind of gem one hopes to find when purchasing a collection like this. Buy it people!!!!!!

The back cover and the introduction state it outright: this is an anthology of Lovecraftian stories, not stories set in the Cthulhu Mythos, and that is possibly this book's greatest strength. Most of these stories center on fear of the unknown, forces from beyond time and space and similar Lovecraft themes without directly cribbing from the master, and that sets them apart from the flood of Cthulhu fan fiction that is so easily found plastered all over the internet. A great variety of stories, from the Civil War to the far-flung future, cover a wide number of subjects. It's hard to choose a favorite, but if pressed I'd have to go with Matt Moore's "Delta Pi" for its subtlety and its play with the laws of physics and mathematics. A very worthy investment for any fan of Lovecraft or new horror fiction.

I picked this up at Pulp Ark and finally got to sit down this week and read it. I'm certainly glad I picked this book up. It contains nineteen short stories, and each one was an interesting take on cosmic horror. The Clive Barker piece was fantastic (Rawhead Rex :) ), and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the stories by new writers. As a collection, it flowed nicely, and I would highly suggest giving this a read the next time you want cosmic horror that isn't Lovecraft or a blatant copy.

I enjoyed the range of works in this collection and the varying approaches to honor H.P. Lovecraft. Anytime I see mention of an anthology that uses Lovecraft as inspiration I become wary of it being overly focused on the Cthulhu mythos - but this was not. From Clive Barker's wonderful tale, to stories about loss and personal suffering this was an enjoyable read.
