An outstanding anthology of original stories inspired by H. P. Lovecraft from authors who do not merely imitate, but re-imagine, re-energize, and renew his concepts in ways relevant to today’s readers. Fresh new fiction that explores our modern fears and nightmares. From the depths of R’lyeh to the heights of the Mountains of Madness, some of today’s best weird fiction writers—both established award-winning authors and exciting new voices—THE MAMMOTH BOOK of CTHULHU collects tales of cosmic horror that traverse terrain created by Lovecraft and create new eldritch geographies to explore . . .

Notes:

  • There is an earlier version of the cover on display in various places online (including US Amazon). This is the correct cover. You can click the image here to see larger version.
  • I do not have copies as yet (and neither do the authors). There are no ARCs. I should be receiving some UK print editions to send out as review copies. Right now I can currently provide an unproofed PDF to bona fide reviewers only. Email me at paula@prime-books.com
  • Yes, it is over 150,000 words of ORIGINAL FICTION not REPRINTS.
  • It seems as if this were finished aeons ago...
