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.

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 ...

The new era of Lovecraft's writers show that the legacy of the Master of the Horror never will fall in the oblivion.
