From the Author:

Interest in H. P. Lovecraft's fiction never seems to wane. His influence on his contemporaries and on so many writers since he died is a testament to the power of
his imagination. Why might this be? Possibly it's the richness of the mythos he created. The monsters, the unseen world behind the screen of normality in our world.
My initial exposure to the mythos was during my early teens, when I was reading lots of science fiction, so my experience with Lovecraft strongly contrasted with the sense of wonder and embrace of the unknown in science fiction. H. P. Lovecraft's hidden worlds and the mythos he created seemed inspired by and in turn promoted a sense of  fear and dread of the unknown.
Over time, I've read numerous pastiches of Lovecraft, but most --for me, at least--are too obvious, and bring little new to the table. I'm far more impressed and often surprised by writers who use the mythos in ways that its creator never dreamed of (and might indeed have him spinning in his grave).
            This is the second time I've edited a Lovecraftian anthology. My first was Lovecraft Unbound, containing mostly new stories inspired by Lovecraft. As readers familiar with my theme anthologies, I always attempt to push thematic boundaries to the breaking point: that is, if I can justify to myself that a story I encounter (by commissioning originals, or by researching and listening to suggestions for reprints) fits within the theme of my book, and I love that story I'll acquire and publish it.
For Lovecraft's Monsters, I had three goals in choosing stories: the first, as usual, was to avoid pastiches; the second was to use stories that have not been overly reprinted in the many recent mythos anthologies; third, I wanted to showcase Lovecraftian influenced stories by at least some authors not known for that kind of story. So in this case there are stories by Gemma Files, Steve Rasnic Tem, Karl Edward Wagner, Joe R. Lansdale, Brian Hodge, Nadia Bulkin, and a collaboration by Howard Waldrop and Steven Utley.
I believe I've succeeded in all three goals and hope that you enjoy reading Lovecraft's Monsters as much as I did working on it.
