"There is a lake in the Severn Valley, near a town called Brichester. It is an eerie, haunted place, both by day and by night. Night especially, though, is a time when no one in their right mind would go anywhere near it, or those oddly deserted houses that stand, albeit barely, on the edge of the shore. But why? What is it that moves about in that like, a thing that makes its presence known with three sinister glowing eyes that protrude from beneath the water?
"Some believe it is an entity that travelled to Earth, many thousands of years ago inside a hollow meteor."

From the Depths of Time: Afterword by Ramsey Campbell
There is a fantastic and moody interior illustration, but I cannot find any note on who ye artist is. At 284 pages, this is a good-sized book of new, original Mythos fiction. Some of the stories, such as those by Pete Rawlik and John Langan, are excellent; others are either good or merely "okay." It is one of ye delightful traditions of Mythos fiction that the oeuvre of one particular writer can so inspire a slew of other writers, and I can attest to how much fun it is to play ye Mythos "game." In this collection, the game is play'd very well indeed.
