[Book Review] Lovecraft's Monsters
Lovecraft's Monsters / Ellen Datlow (ed)
H. P. Lovecraft made famous beings from fever dreams and hallucinatory nightmares. These monsters in turn have grown as they catch our imagination and create new additions to the mythos. Lovecraft's Monsters is an excellently curated collection of Lovecraftian tales set largely in the now or in the cthonian aftermath. Renowned authors have created enhancing and unsettling tales. Further enhancing this collection each story starts with its own eerie illustration, and the book closes with an informative appendix for each of the monsters and their literary birth.
