The Gods of H.P. Lovecraft: a brand new anthology that collects the 12 principal deities of the Lovecraftian Mythos and sets them loose. Featuring the biggest names in horror and dark fantasy, including many New York Times best sellers; full of original fiction; and individual commentary on each of the deities by Donald Tyson.
Lovecraft's bestiary of gods has had a major influence on the horror scene from the time these sacred names were first evoked. Cthulhu, Azathoth, Nyarlathotep, Yog-Sothoth - this pantheon of the horrific calls to mind the very worst of cosmic nightmares and the very darkest signs of human nature. The Gods of H.P. Lovecraft brings together 12 all-new Mythos tales from: Cthulhu (Adam Nevill) , Yog-Sothoth (Martha Wells), Azathoth (Laird Barron) , Nyarlathotep (Bentley Little), Shub-Niggurath (David Liss), Tsathoggua (Brett Talley), The Mi-Go (Christopher Golden and James A. Moore); Night-gaunts (Jonathan Maberry); Elder Things (Joe Lansdale); Great Race (Rachel Caine); Yig (Douglas Wynne); and The Deep Ones (Seanan McGuire).

i wanted to like this book but the stories were very poor. the worst was laird barron's., which is not unusual as i have yet to read a good story of his. tim curran's here be monster s is a far better collection. give this a miss
"Outstanding narration and storytelling"
This collection is not one of a kind, but it's one of the best of it's kind.
"Great story... hard to listen to"
I was pumped to get some modern twists on cosmic and arcane horror, and had I read the book I would have been satisfied.
the stories are great but the narrator actually killed the whole book. terrible inflection terrible punctuation and timing. so put eyes to ink for this one folks
"One Unique Caveat, Only For Fans Of Bob & Ray"
Buyer beware, if you happen to be a Bob & Ray fan (and a fan of Lovecraft) - listen to the audio sample before purchasing. (I didn't. Heh.) As it happens, the narrator sounds a heck of a lot like Bob Goulding, when doing his "straight" characters (those without a lot of accent or heavy inflection). I noticed it immediately when I started the book. And later when he does do various character voices, it's even more noticeable. Kinda makes it hard to take the dark stories very seriously... for me, anyway. Some of them are very good, though, in spite of this.
