This collection of fifteen short stories is centered around the theme of how would look our Earth and what would happen to human race once "the stars are right", the city of R'lyeh rises from its watery grave and Cthulhu wakes up for good, to take control of our world. It is, I believe, the first such attempt and the collection as a whole is surprisingly good. Of all the collections of stories inspired by Lovecraft this is definitely one of the best I ever read. One warning here - because of the topic almost all those stories are very very dark, even more than the usual SF stories about the end of the world. If you feel a little bit down, this book is not advised - it can really seriously depress you.

Except a mistake on my part all those stories were written in 2010 specially for this collection, so there is little chance that you already know them. Some authors are known to fantasy and SF fans (Fred Chappell, Ian Watson, Brian Stableford), but most of them I did not know at all - still some of them provided very good texts. Here is more details about the stories, with some very limited SPOILERS:

"The walker in the cemetery" by Ian Watson - a quite good, although very cruel story about a group of tourists surprised by the end of our world in an old Italian cemetery; it begins slowly, but after couple of pages it becomes quite interesting; in this one Cthulhu displays a very godlike feature - the gift of ubiquity - and also a very demoniac one - perverted sadism. The story is quite gory and gets worse and worse at every page, so be warned.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a look for fans 10 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pretty good - bit of a mixed bag. In many cases the idea is far better than the execution. Worth remembering that - unlike Lovecraft's stories - these are not all set in the same mythos, but in alternate versions; each author's own idea of what would happen when the stars are right ...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Future is here 2 1 April 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The new era of Lovecraft's writers show that the legacy of the Master of the Horror never will fall in the oblivion.

Goes the way of all Anthologies .in that there's alot of bad stories, a few ok stories and one or two quite good stories but overall not worth the price of admission .back to the drawing board Shoggoth lovers

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea... could do better... 23 April 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Well I'm going to be perfectly blunt, this is not the greatest selection of stories based around the Cthulhu mythos I've ever read.

True there are some gems in this compilation but in general there are some real stinkers. Well maybe that's too harsh but I know of at least two stories that I just skipped through as they just seemed, well... dull!

Maybe it's the style of writing or something but I actually like a story where something 'happens' not just some bloke rambling on about (Elder) God knows what.

Out of 10 I'd give it a liberal 6, but to be fair I'm about 4/5ths the way through so there may just be that last couple of stories that just make the grade but at least half of the ones I've read so far have been 'so so' with only a few being memorable and unique.

I hate to slate peoples hard work but I have to be honest this was a really good idea but I'm afraid some of the stories seem a bit tedious and disappointing.
