Sinopsis:

From the front flap of this 410 page book: "Providence fantasist H.P. Lovecraft enjoys an honor shared by few other authors of imaginative fiction: In the decades since his death, the term 'Lovecraftian' has come into worldwide use to describe a body of work so fully realized, so compellingly iconized, as to influence countless generations of subsequent writers. Today his fiction remains in print in numerous editions, his stories have been adapted to motion pictures and other media, and his oeuvre has been the subject of academic theses and scholarly papers. During his lifetime he remained sequestered in his study, virtually unknown except to the rarefied readership of such pulp magazines as 'Weird Tales' and 'Astounding Stories'. Lovecraft was a mythmaker, a visionary, a conjurer of dream who invested his inner visions with such intensity that he was able in his isolation to will an entire world into being: the infamous Cthulhu, the transgalactic Great Race of Yith, the sea-sunken realm of R'lyeh, the dreaded Necronomicon, the demon-cursed Arkham. This incomparable dreamworld has inspired generations of subsequent writers who have come under the spell of Lovecraft's darkly enduring legacy. In the present reprint anthology, the stories range in setting from the ancient Roman Empire to the outer Solar System, with intervening stops at Arkham, Innsmouth, and Providence itself. The authors include such brilliant contemporaries as Nancy Collins, Thomas Ligotti, and Gene Wolfe, but also such distinguished American mainstream figures as Fred Chappell, Harlan Ellison, and Stephen King. The common element is that each author in this volume came under the Lovecraftian conjuration and then wrote a story that in some way reflects the experience, providing compelling testimony that H.P. Lovecraft is, quite simply, one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century."

Review:

Return to Arkham and behold the Old Gods in all their horrific darkness. Eighteen authors take a stab at interpreting the mythos of H.P. Lovecraft, master of a compelling style and setting so unique it has spawned a name--Lovecraftian--describing the unique blend of science fiction, fantasy, and horror that made him famous. From Gene Wolfe's creepy outer-space tale "The Other Dead Man" to Stephen King's "Crouch End," where Cthulhu himself would feel right at home, these stories are chillingly inspired by Lovecraft's style and milieu. Other highlights are stories by Fritz Lieber, Harlan Ellison, and Nancy A. Collins. Settings vary from the Roman Empire to a slightly... different... New England inhabited with alien terrors. Not familiar with H.P. Lovecraft? These stories will make you want to discover his classic fiction, and there's a wonderful introduction to help you understand the man behind the mythos. This is extradimensionally weird fun. --Therese Littleton
