Rome, the greatest empire the world has ever known, limitless in breadth and power, magnificent in its glory! But something evil, ancient and unknowable gnaws at the heart of the empire. Dark gods, trapped for centuries in thrice-warded tombs, have been disturbed by Roman plunderers. A secret war is fought daily between those who would harness this strange power for themselves, and those who fear it signals the very end of the empire. Across the sea, roused from eternal slumber by a world awash with war, by omens and pagan slaughter, a Great Old One waits for the way to be opened. A cosmic terror that man was not meant to know. Those who know its name tremble, and only the very brave-or very foolish-incant it for their own ends. They whisper it in darkness; they cry it from atop blasted hills; they scream it to the raging oceans. "Cthulhu...†?
Following up on the success of A Mountain Walked, this volume presents another dozen tales of the Cthulhu Mythos that show how H. P. Lovecraft's motifs, conceptions, and imagery have affected an entire century of weird writing. Beginning with a delightful parody of Lovecraft written by Edith Miniter in 1921, this anthology features "The Red Brain," a story of incalculable cosmic horror by Donald Wandrei; "The Beast of Averoigne," in which Clark Ashton Smith plays a riff on "The Dunwich Horror"; and C. Hall Thompson's "The Will of Claude Ashur," an ingenious adaptation of "The Thing on the Doorstep." Ramsey Campbell, one of the leading weird writers of today, has always maintained his Lovecraftian roots, and in "The Pattern" he utilizes Lovecraft's theme of "conflict with time" to cataclysmic effect. The pioneering Thomas Ligotti ("The Sect of the Idiot") draws inspiration from Lovecraft's early tales, while Brian McNaughton ("Meryphillia") teases out the latent sexuality in Lovecraft's use of ghouls. Caitlín R. Kiernan's "The Peddler's Tale" is one of the few successful elaborations of Lovecraft's dreamland stories, while Jonathan Thomas uses Lovecraft's native town of Providence for a tale of alien races. This volume contains previously unpublished stories by W. H. Pugmire, Mark Samuels, and Ray Garton, all of which demonstrate their authors' skill at fusing Lovecraftian motifs with their own dark vision. All in all, The Red Brain is a rich banquet of strangeness that no Lovecraft devotee will want to be without.
If parapolitics, a branch of radical criminology that studies the interactions between public entities and clandestine agencies, is to develop as an academic discipline, then it must develop a coherent theory of aesthetics in order to successfully perform its primary function: to render perceptible extra-judicial phenomena that have hitherto resisted formal classification. Wilson offers the work of H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) as an example of the relevance of subversive literature-in this case, cosmic horror and the weird tale-to the parapolitical criminologist. Cosmic horror is a form of writing that relies heavily upon the epistemological assumption of a radical and irreconcilable disjunction between appearance and reality, perception and truth. In many ways, the well-constructed weird tale strongly resembles the hard-boiled detective story or the noir thriller in that the resolution of the narrative hinges upon a dramatically shattering confrontation with an unspeakable reality. Apart from its obvious utilization of conspiracy theory, the primary attraction of the Lovecraftian text lies with its remarkably sophisticated utilization of two central tropes of classical aesthetic theory-the sublime and the grotesque. Not only does Lovecraft's oeuvre represent a remarkable use of both of these motifs, but the raw literary power of the Lovecraftian weird tale serves as an outstanding exemplar for the parapolitical scholar to emulate in formulating an alternative mode of discourse, or poetics.
TOP AUTHORS POKE FUN AND PAY TRIBUTE TO H.P. LOVECRAFT'S CTHULHU MYTHOS. Knock, knock! Who’s there? Cthul. Cthul who? Exactly! I've come to tickle your funnybone. Oh, and also to eat your soul. In 1928, Weird Tales debuted “The Call of Cthulhu” by H.P. Lovecraft, and the Cthulhu Mythos was born. In the 90 years since, dozens of writers have dared play within HPL’s mind-blowing creation—but never with such terrifyingly funny results. Now top authors lampoon, parody, and subvert Lovecraft’s Mythos. See Cthulhu cut short his nap at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean to invade North Korea! Watch the Unspeakable Eater of Souls solve crimes on the pulpy streets of Innsmouth! And speaking of largish Elder Gods, listen to a plastic Elvis doll dispense folksy advice straight from the heart of the Emperor of Dread! Again Ol’ Tentacle-Face is confronted by frail humans who dare defy the Incarnation of Ultimate Evil—but this time not by brave monster hunters and terrified villagers, but by fan fiction writers, clueless college students, and corporate lawyers (okay, we realize it’s hard to know who to root for in that confrontation). Twenty-three mirthful manifestations within the Cthulhu Mythos from best-selling and award-winning authors Neil Gaiman, Mike Resnick, Esther Friesner, Ken Liu, Jody Lynn Nye, Laura Resnick, Nick Mamatas, and many more! Guaranteed to leave you howling. Because if you look at it just right, there’s nothing funnier than a soul writhing in cosmic horror before a tentacled maw of malevolence. As HPL himself saith: “From even the greatest of horrors irony is seldom absent.” Praise for the Unidentified Funny Objects anthologies, edited by Alex Shvartsman: “This book is a delight. There are a lot of giggles here, and every now and then you’ll laugh your head off. This is a hoot from start to finish.”—Galaxy’s Edge “Shvartsman delivers a wonderful anthology and if you want to broaden your humorous SFF reading, Unidentified Fu
H. P. Lovecraft's brand of cosmic horror has long forced readers to an inexorable truth--there are powers in the universe whose immensity dwarfs petty human conflicts.

The complete Cthulhu Mythos by master horror writer H. P. Lovecraft in one volume. The Cthulhu Mythos is a collection of 23 loosely connected short stories by H. P. Lovecraft, one of the earliest masters of dark fantasy and horror. From "Dagon" to "The Call of Cthulhu" to "The Haunter of the Dark," each story connects to the ancient cosmic entities known as the Great Old Ones, buried in a deep sleep beneath the earth and incomprehensible to mankind. For the few mortals who dare to glimpse this unknowable world, the result is a complete disconnection from what was once considered reality. Lovecraft's stories are grim, fantastical, dark, horrifying—and yet endlessly fascinating.
Sixteen stories inspired by the 20th century's great master of horror, H.P. Lovecraft, and his acknowledged masterpiece, At the Mountains of Madness, in which an expedition to the desolation of Antarctica discovers evidence of an ancient ruin built by horrific creatures at first thought long-dead, until death strikes the group. All but two of the stories are original to this edition, and those reprints are long-lost works by science fiction masters Arthur C. Clarke and Robert Silverberg.
Fourteen brand-new stories of the macabre, plus two rare works inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's legendary novella AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS “One of the greatest short novels in American literature, and a key text in my own understanding of what literature can do.” Michael Chabon With its terrifying account of a doomed scientific expedition, Lovecraft's masterpiece has influenced many of the finest authors in modern fiction. Inspired by his dark mythos of cosmic abominations clawing at the edge of our reality, these writers have enthusiastically embraced...

Auszug: Der Cthulhu-Mythos umfasst die vom amerikanischen Schriftsteller H. P. Lovecraft und anderen Autoren der Horrorliteratur erdachten Personen, Orte, Wesenheiten und Geschichten. Bekanntester Bestandteil dieses Mythos ist das ebenfalls fiktive Buch Necronomicon, in dem die interstellaren Wesenheiten mit ubernaturlichen Kraften genauestens beschrieben sind. Diese Wesen werden von Lovecraft als die Alten" oder die Grossen Alten" bezeichnet. Sie stammen aus weit entfernten Teilen der Galaxis oder sogar des Universums und unterliegen keinen uns bekannten Naturgesetzen. Nach menschlichen Massstaben verfugen sie uber eine gottgleiche Macht und scheinen unsterblich zu sein. Der Begriff Cthulhu-Mythos stammt aus dem englischsprachigen Raum. Dabei ist mythos in der englischen Sprache eine Wortschopfung von August Derleth, dem amerikanischen Autor, Verleger und Briefkontakt von H.P. Lovecraft. Der Begriff wurde ohne Anderung in die deutsche Sprache ubertragen, da die Verwendung des englischen mythos-Begriffes ausreichend Parallelen mit dem Wort myth aufweist, welches wiederum dem deutschen Mythos entspricht. Cthulhu ist eine Schopfung von Lovecraft, ein gottahnliches Wesen, das vor mehreren hundert Millionen Jahren mit seinem Gefolge auf die Erde kam und sich seit dem Untergang seiner Stadt in einem todesahnlichen Tiefschlaf befindet. Cthulhu nimmt bei Lovecraft eigentlich keine herausragende Stellung ein. Erst August Derleth griff.
Michael Zigerlig's adaptation of the Lovecraft classic! Updated, and expanded with an introduction by H.L. Giger, this is a must for any true Lovecraft fan!
Boston, 1926. Francis Thurston goes through documents left behind by his grandfather's brother, recently deceased under mysterious circumstances. He soon discovers the existence of a cult that worships ancient and unspeakable horrors. Mysterious murders, blood rituals in the depths of the Louisiana swamps, artists who descend into insanity after nightmarish visions, and a Cyclopean city that rises from the sea. Step by step, Thurston realizes that his relative's research got too close to the truth. In the shadows, there are those who want to wake the sleeping god Cthulhu in order to spread madness and destruction over the entire world. The stars are right. Is the end near? H.P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu, first published in 1928, is one of the greatest classics of American horror literature. Cthulhu himself, dreaming and waiting at the bottom of the sea, became a symbol for the entire mythology that Lovecraft created. François Baranger, an illustrator who has previously worked in film and games, was fascinated early on by Lovecraft's creatures and visions which populated the darkest recesses of fantasy. In this book, he has taken on the work of illustrating Lovecraft's most iconic novel.
