Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

The 16 new and four reprint stories Datlow (Poe) assembles for this outstanding tribute anthology all capture what Dale Bailey praises as horror master H.P. Lovecraft's gift for depicting the universe as "inconceivably more vast, strange, and terrifying than mere human beings can possibly imagine." Bailey and Nathan Ballingrud, in "The Crevasse," evoke this alien sensibility through an Antarctic expedition's glimpses of an astonishingly ancient prehuman civilization preserved in the polar ice. Laird Barron's "Catch Hell" depicts a Lovecraft-type backwoods community in the grip of a profoundly creepy occult mythology. Selections range in tone from the darkly humorous to the sublimely horrific, and all show the contributors to be perceptive interpreters of Lovecraft's work. Readers who know Lovecraft's legacy mostly through turgid and tentacled Cthulhu Mythos pastiches will find this book a treasure trove of literary terrors. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
