Praise For…

Praise for the Editor's previous book New Cthulhu: The Recent Weird:

“For fans of Lovecraftian fiction and well-wrought horror”
-Library Journal

“Guran smartly selects stories that evoke the spirit of Lovecraft's work without mimicking its style.”
-Publishers Weekly

“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!”
