These were good straight up mythos stories.

Jeffrey Thomas's uses HPL's Mythos and combines it with Derleth's Elder Gods and it mixes very well indeed.

Recomended for those who enjoy well written weird fiction.

The enterprising small press Mythos Books has finally been releasing some titles that we have all been waiting on for some time (And some we had no idea were pending release; their website is extremely user unfriendly compared to Elder Signs Press, Hippocampus Press or Golden Gryphon Press. On the other hand Wildside Press and Pagan Publishing won't win any prizes for keeping up to date either...), like The Taint of Lovecraft and The Tales of Inspector LeGrasse. Coming soon is a highly anticipated collection by Walter deBill, The Black Sutra. I feel like I was waiting on Unholy Dimensions for more than a year.

Jeffrey Thomas is a highly respected horror and science fiction author who certainly needs no introduction from me (all us reviewers write this before we introduce someone who needs no introduction...). He is the creator of Punktown, a wild, weird and wonderful city on the alien planet of Oasis. Originally named Paxton, it has been renamed Punktown by its inhabitants, a mixture of humans living side by side with other almost human races, and other completely inhuman species. Full of crime, drugs, desperation, poverty and intrigue, Punktown is a violent place. So far the Punktown saga may be read in Thomas's collection Punktown, the collection he edited Punktown:Third Eye (guest authors set stories in Thomas' world), Thomas' novel Monstrocity (which is an entirely mythosian outing; Punktown's human-like races have their own traditions of grimoires, and names for the mythos entities and the Elder Gods), and new collection by Jeffrey Thomas and his brother Scott, Punktown: Shades of Grey. This last is the best and edgiest Punktown collection so far!

Jeffrey Thomas is the renowed author of the imaginative Punktown but he is an equally imaginative if not wholly original purveyor of Lovecraftean fiction.I'm not an enthusiast of contemporary mythos fiction but Jeffrey`s stories are well crafted, polished and highly entertaining.The poems didn't do much for me but all the stories, even the lesser ones, are enjoyable.My personal favorites are the Punktownean/Lovecraftean/Derlethean

stories presenting investigator John Bell (Bones of the Old Ones, Avatars of the Old Ones),The Cellar Gods, The Corpse Candles, Out of the Belly of Sheol and Servitors.

Writers like Jeffrey Thomas and W.H Pugmire proves that is possible to write contemporary mythos fiction in polished, simple, accessible, even poetic prose (in the case of Pugmire) with a modern sensibility.

Recomended for those who enjoy well written weird fiction.

Format: Paperback
I have read some of Jeffrey Thomas's short stories over the past few years in various short story collections dealing with the Cthulhu Mythos and i enjoyed them for the most part. This however is my first book of Thomas's work in and of itself. I can honestly say after just having finished this that it is one the best collections of Mythos tales ever written.

The first three tales especially stick out for me. They are called Bones of the Old Ones,Avatars of the Old Ones, and Young of the Old Ones. They are tight,well written and very character driven stories involving a main character named John Bell who has to deal with the threat of the Old Ones. John Bell does what most of Lovecrafts chracters do not, he fights back instead of running away and that stuck out for me especially. I always hated how no one ever tried to even oppose the Old Ones. Well the chracters in all these stories don't just give up. They may not always win but they at least try to do something.

His take on the Old Ones is also different than alot of other stories out there that have been written on the Mythos. He sometimes uses futuristic settings involving his fictional city of Paxton aka Punktown and than moves on the with the next story to a setting like ancient Egypt. One story that uses it's setting especially well is called Pazuzu's Children and takes place in Desert Storm.

Jeffrey Thomas's uses HPL's Mythos and combines it with Derleth's Elder Gods and it mixes very well indeed. He does even better than Derleth himself did in The Trail Of Cthulhu. Every one out there who is a fan of HPL and The Mythos i would suggest you pick up a copy of this and enjoy. Fiction like this comes along once in a while and it is something you will enjoy a great deal. I look forward to reading more of Thomas's work in the future
