I generally stay away from most HPL mythos collections, often finding the material repetitive and unimaginative but gave this one a try because of the Grant Morrison piece. I have to say i dont regret buying this book at all, this is not your usual HPL clones doing the same thing worse almost a century later. The authors included present highly original weird fiction, often with an experimental touch, some of the stories more closely related to Lovecraft's mythos, some only fitting because of an underlying theme or a similar effect or atmosphere.

They have re printed this book now with what I think is an inferior cover and the copy I saw had print problems......get this book now! Ten quid!!!!! It's worth the price alone of the Call of Cthulhu illustrated story! It sets a bench mark for genuinely alien Mythos landscapes and scans almost like a film story board. And it was the book that led me onto reading W S Burroughs full catalogue. BUY IT NOW!

This book contains one of Grant Morrison's finest prose works - the short story 'Lovecraft In Heaven'. Entirely worth buying for that alone. Thankfully much of the rest of it is decent too - Alan Moore's 'The Courtyard' isn't bad, although it's far from his best work, and there's some wonderful art in it too. Avoid the sequel though, it's awful.

Freaky visions of modern Lovecraft-esque stories, and deranged images which weld themselves to your brain. In no way a waste of paper, especially the diseased tale of Lovecraft's death and the graphic novel-format retelling of THE CALL OF CTHULHU! A must-eat for any cthonian creeper.

Fantastic. Some of these stories are profoundly disturbing, taking the undertones of LOvecraft's work (sexual and otherwise) to incredible heights. Some stories are more like to his tales, while with most others the connection is more in shared ideas and currents of thought rather than any specific Mythos characters. In all a grand tribute to Lovecraft.
