Helpful Hints


From the depths of R'lyeh come twenty-one brand-new, utterly terrifying, and thoroughly entertaining short stories of horror and the macabre! 

Taking their inspiration from works by Lovecraft himself, prominent writers such as Caitlin R. Kiernan, Brian Stableford, Ramsey Campbell, Michael Shea, Darrell Schweitzer, Donald R. Burleson, and David J. Schow delve deep into the psyche, expanding on concepts H.P. Lovecraft created and taking them in new directions. 

The result is stories that are wholly original, some even featuring Lovecraft himself as a character. Black Wings editor S.T. Joshi is the recognized authority on all things Lovecraftian, and is famous for his restorations of Lovecraft's original works. He has assembled a star-studded line-up in a book that is essential for every horror library.

Great mix of Lovecraftian Horror!
January 21st, 2015
A good mix of Lovecraftian tales. The many stories in this book are very diverse in topic and style. Nearly all of them had a clear Lovecraftian link, and all deal with the macabre insanity across space and time. Some stories were great, and a few I didn't much care for - but they did provide me with good ideas for new writers to investigate.
