Where this book succeeds it really succeeds well. Neil Gaiman's effort, for a start, is superb. However, there is a fair amount of swine amongst the pearls, some of which has no real place in a Lovecraft-inspired anthology. When they work it is great to have Lovecraft in a modern day setting, but some stories are decidedly flaccid. Personally, I prefer some of Ramsay Campbell's Lovecraft-inspired efforts (see the book Cold Print for those), but perhaps thats just because they work together as a whole to extend the mythos, whereas these have to stand up on their own.

There are some real gems in this collection, but also some real turkeys.

Really enjoyable collection of new free-range writing far from the farms of the ordinary. Most stories had something original to offer, and all were well told.

Some excellent pieces here. If Cthulhu is into you buy it and maybe you'll be eaten first...

I am pleased to say that Modern Lovecraftian Horror is alive and well and living happily in this collection.
So far I have only read 2/3 of the contents, but I haven't come across a duff story yet.
The creepiest moment so far is in Mr Gaunt when his true form is revealed.
This is a good read well worth the money.
