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. You'll also find beauty, hope, redemption, and the struggle for survival. What more can you ask for?”
I highly recommend this collection... If you have even the slightest interest in contemporary horror fiction, you'll want to try this one on for size!”

I received my copy of the anthology directly from Prime Books.
I bought the book for the fiction, not a shaming of the genre's namesake.
A disappointing ending to an otherwise enjoyable book.
