Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The stories are legendary, the characters unforgettable, the world horrible and disturbing. Howard Phillips Lovecraft may have been a writer for only a short time, but the creations he left behind after his death in 1937 have shaped modern horror more than any other author in the last two centuries: the shambling god Cthulhu, and the other deities of the Elder Things, the Outer Gods, and the Great Old Ones, and Herbert West, Reanimator, a doctor who unlocked the secrets of life and death at a terrible cost. In Lovecraft Unbound, more than twenty of today's most prominent writers of literature and dark fantasy tell stories set in or inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft.

Among the contributors are multiple New York Times-bestselling authors Michael Chabon and Joyce Carol Oates, award-winning writers Brian Evenson and Marc Laidlaw, Caitlin R. Kiernan, and many others. Edited by multiple-award-winning editor Ellen Datlow.

Review:

"The 16 new and four reprint stories Datlow (Poe) assembles for this outstanding tribute anthology all capture what Dale Bailey praises as horror master H.P. Lovecraft's gift for depicting the universe as 'inconceivably more vast, strange, and terrifying than mere human beings can possibly imagine.' Bailey and Nathan Ballingrud, in 'The Crevasse,' evoke this alien sensibility through an Antarctic expedition's glimpses of an astonishingly ancient prehuman civilization preserved in the polar ice. Laird Barron's 'Catch Hell' depicts a Lovecraft-type backwoods community in the grip of a profoundly creepy occult mythology. Selections range in tone from the darkly humorous to the sublimely horrific, and all show the contributors to be perceptive interpreters of Lovecraft's work. Readers who know Lovecraft's legacy mostly through turgid and tentacled Cthulhu Mythos pastiches will find this book a treasure trove of literary terrors." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
