Descend to the depths of primal horror with this chilling collection of original stories drawn from H. P. Lovecraft's shocking, terrifying, and eerily prescient Cthulhu Mythos.
In twenty-one dark visions, a host of outstanding contemporary writers tap into our innermost fears, with tales set in a misbegotten new world that could have been spawned only by the master of the macabre himself, H. P. Lovecraft. Inside you'll find:
"Details" by China Miéville: A curious boy discovers that within the splinters of cracked wood or the tangle of tree branches, the devil is in the details.
"Visitation" by James Robert Smith: When Edgar Allan Poe arrives, a callow man finally gets what he always wanted-and what he may eternally despise.
"Meet Me on the Other Side" by Yvonne Navarro: A couple in love with terror travels beyond their wildest dreams-and into their nightmares.
"A Fatal Exception Has Occured At . . ." by Alan Dean Foster: Internet terrorism extends far beyond transmitting threats of evil.
