Book Description

17 Oct 2013
The old gods are dead … The older gods have returned! Before the American master of the macabre H. P. Lovecraft there was the Welsh wizard of the weird Arthur Machen, who filled his pages with tales of ancient evil. Now, completing the circle, comes a collection of original tales from the land of Machen following in the footsteps of Lovecraft and his uncanny creations. In What Others Hear by John Llewellyn Probert , a musician comes to rural Wales to convalesce in peace. But what terrible secrets hide behind the notes of the music he so loves? Adrian Chamberlin shows us that seemingly innocent old traditions can conceal sinister intentions when dark forces use them to deadly ends in Stranger Crossings. In Charles Black's tale, a brilliant Welsh scholar finds the price of knowledge can cost you everything when he discovers the true purpose of that dreaded tome The Necronomicon. And six more Lovecraftian tales of the otherworldly. TABLE OF CONTENTS Foreword by S. T. Joshi Introduction by Mark Howard Jones & Steve Upham What Others Hear by John Llewellyn Probert The Bicycle-Centaur by Rhys Hughes The Cawl of Cthulhu by Bob Lock Pilgrimage by Mark Howard Jones Song of Summoning by Brian Willis The Necronomicon by Charles Black Un-Dhu-Milhuk Would by Liam Davies Periphery by Paul Lewis Stranger Crossings by Adrian Chamberlin

A fantastic little book of great short stories linked together by being set in Wales or are written by Welsh authors. There are 9 tales of Mythos related material quite widely ranged in style, but as other reviewers have mentioned it lacks substance due to the lack of space. I do enjoy a short story though and didn't mind the lack of too much plot or background - having live and studied in Wales (Caerleon on Usk, appropriately a Machen-approved region of strange otherworldliness) - the atmosphere was readily available when summoned however brief.

I did enjoy the Bicycle Centaur - very odd indeed. The Welsh humour had me grinning at times, and the writing is very good at describing the wierdness and feeling of places and the history.

I am a collector of Cthulhu material and must recommend this book, though short and brief and of only 9 stories, but what stories! Croeso........

5.0 out of 5 stars Cthulhu comes to Wales - run! 29 Jan 2014
By Mapman
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a highly enjoyable collection. Whether you're a Mythos fan or Welsh or both, you'll get a kick out of it.

Kudos to editor Mark Howard Jones for bringing this beast to life. And his story 'Pilgrimage' is one of the weirder offerings here, though several of the other tales give him a run for his money.

this unique spin on Cthulhu and Co. definitely left me wanting more (which is a good thing). Volume 2, maybe?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff, not enough of it 12 Dec 2013
By Wembley
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is some good writing here -- some very good writing -- but none of the nine stories is very long, and at 148 pages total the whole thing leaves you hungry for something substantial. Respect for the title though, which tells you exactly what you're getting!

The central conceit, having all the tales set in Wales, works well, and there is a satisfying Welshness to proceedings with plenty of nods to Arthur Machen. The short format means the tales tend towards boy-meets-monster without a lot of plot, but so e of it really captures the Lovecraftian spirit: the hallucinogenic train ride of The Pilgrimmage and the spooky atmospherics of Song of Summoning in particular. The Bicycle Centaur is every bit the shaggy-dog story the title suggests; Caul of Cthulhu is tastier than it sounds.

Makes an interesting contrast to Shadows from Norwood which came out at the same time, and also uses the idea of a shared setting - south London rather than the land of leeks and daffodils - but links the stories together (and Shadows gives you about three times as many pages to get your teeth into).

Altogether a very worthwhile project, and with ST Joshis blessing and Preface. I don't know if it will bring many more tourists over the border though...

5.0 out of 5 stars The ideal companion for your holiday in Wales 6 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read many compilations of 'Mythos' stories, and they are of wildly varying quality. When you see a Foreword by S T Joshi, however, you can be reasonably sure that it's fronting an enjoyable collection; and this collection certainly does not disappoint. The link to Machen gives the writers more inventive scope than a purely Lovecraftian theme would do, and this shows in the varying approaches to the subject. Most of the stories (with one exception, which I won't name - you must decide for yourself) evoke vividly the spirit of wild Wales and dark, older gods breaking through into modern life. Standout stories for me include What Others Hear by John Llewellyn Probert and Stranger Crossings by Adrian Chamberlain. But there's humour here, too; The Bicycle-Centaur by Rhys Hughes is a delight and had me laughing out loud (watch out for the special chanted phrase).
An enjoyable collection which is worth keeping to read again when you fancy a trip to the Border country.
