The collection contained a few supreme standouts:
Laird Barron's "Andy Kaufman Creeping through the Trees" proves this wonderful writer can blend dread and humor. His writing is expanding for the better. Don't get me wrong—I love his earlier works, but this new direction is brilliant. I also highly recommend his recent novella "X's for Eyes"— what a head trip.
Mark Lanagan's novella "Anchor" is just lovely. Frightening, touching, and damned unique, it blends a tale about a bond between a father and son with the bond between a seeker and a vengeful spirit. Yep, I cried.
Wendy N. Wagner 's "The Black Azalea" struck a true note of horror in me. After reading her story, I look at my garden and shiver.
"Grave Goods" by Gemma Files struck another high note. Balls to the wall creepy.
There is one dud in the mix but that's only because I hated the writing style. All the other stories and the one poem are solid reads. If you like weird, this is for you. This is a truly impressive collection of shivers.
Autumn Cthulhu is a horror treat that pulls off the trick of being both pleasingly diverse AND thematically consistent. It helps that the collection is light on Mythos elements, with most of the authors focusing on evoking melancholy and dread of the unknowable. My personal favorites were Damien Angelica Walters' quietly devastating 'In The Spaces Where You Once Lived', Nadia Bulkin's eerie 'There Is A Bear In The Woods', and Gemma Files' vicious, immersive 'Grave Goods.' Highly recommended.
Mike Davis' introduction was one of my favorite parts of this collection. I too am an "autumn person, thinking only autumn thoughts." And he sets up the tales to follow beautifully.
