For fans of Lovecraftian fiction and well-wrought horror”
Guran smartly selects stories that evoke the spirit of Lovecraft's work without mimicking its style.”
It's a pretty impressive line-up, with nary a clunker to be found. . . . You don't have to be a Lovecraft fan to enjoy this anthology... You'll find alienation, inhumanity, desperation, cruelty, insanity, hopelessness and despair, all set against the backdrop of a vast, unknowable universe filled with vile, indifferent monstrosities.
