“That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die.”
At the time of his death in 1937, American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft was virtually unknown. The power of his stories was too great to contain, however. As the decades slipped by, his dark visions laid down roots in the collective imagination of mankind, and they grew strong. Now Cthulhu is a name known to many and, deep under the seas, Lovecraft s greatest creation becomes restless…
This volume brings together seventeen masterful tales of cosmic horror inspired by Lovecraft s work. In his fiction, humanity is a tiny, accidental drop of light and life in the endless darkness of an uncaring universe a darkness populated by vast, utterly alien horrors. Our continued survival relies upon our utter obscurity, something that every fresh scientific wonder threatens to shatter.
The dazzling stories in Cthulhu Lives! show the disastrous folly of our arrogance. We think ourselves the first masters of Earth, and the greatest, and we are very badly mistaken on both counts. Inside these covers, you ll find a lovingly-curated collection of terrors and nightmares, of catastrophic encounters to wither the body and blight the soul. We humans are inquisitive beings, and there are far worse rewards for curiosity than mere death.
The truth is indeed out there — and it hungers.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Cthulhu Lives! is a solid addition to Lovecraft fiction, respectful of the source material but willing to test the boundaries. Salomé Jones has done a remarkable assembling this collection and Ghostwoods Books should be encouraged to pursue similar projects.
Lovecraft is new to me… I enjoyed this introduction. I particularly liked “Demon in Glass” by E. Dane Anderson, “Scritch, Scratch” by Lynne Hardy, and “Icke”by Greg Stolze.
“Cthulhu Lives” delivers and delivers well, particularly the fantastical “Scritch, Scratch”. There is no unifying theme or setting to the stories, they are disparate, but they all hit the spot in providing a nihilistic sense of doom, the abject sense of powerlessness and insignificance that we all know and love.
I have been a Lovecraft fan for a long while. Something about his dark sensibilities and weighty prose speaks to me. He has inspired many tributes, including this one. Cthulhu Lives! was a refreshing and unique take on the mythos Lovecraft built. It’s hard to compare it to Lovecraft himself, because his writing is so unique. All in all it was a good read, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Lovecraftian horror.
This collection of tales are a fitting tribute to Lovecraft. Creepy and disturbing, they stay with you long after you have finished reading them. Some tales are modern day while others are set in the past. 1884 and Demon in Glass are two particularly effective stories. I would highly recommend this to Lovecraft fans and horror fans.
