Fantasist H. P. Lovecraft enjoys an honor shared by few other authors of imaginative fiction—since his death, the term "Lovecraftian" has come into worldwide use to describe a body of work so fully realized as to influence countless generations of subsequent writers. Each author in this volume came under the Lovecraftian conjuration and then wrote a story that in some way reflects this experience, providing compelling testimony that H. P. Lovecraft is one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. These stories have been previously published but are now gathered together to create this excellent but diverse anthology.
Jim Turner has also edited these other Lovecraftian anthologies: Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos and Cthulhu 2000.
