Deliciously creepy, this loving tribute to the master of modern horror features riveting stories from his wicked progeny. H. P. Lovecraft created a wealth of legendary monstrosities a century ago, and this collection of stories reconnects with those imaginings: the massive, tentacled Cthulhu, who lurks beneath the sea waiting for his moment to rise; the demon Sultan Azathoth, who lies babbling at the center of the universe, mad beyond imagining; the Deep Ones, who come to shore to breed with mortal men; and the unspeakably-evil Hastur, whose very name brings death. Celebrating these famous beasts in all their grotesque glory, each story is a gripping new take on a classic mythos creature accompanied by an illuminating illustration. In one accursed tale, something unnatural slouches from the sea into an all-night diner to meet the foolish young woman waiting for him. In another storyline the Hounds of Tindalos struggle to survive trapped in human bodies, haunting pool halls for men they can lure into the dark. Strange, haunting, and undeniably monstrous, this is the best of Lovecraft’s creatures–reawakened and re-imagined.
