Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up–Cthulhu Tales is a collection of short stories by different writers and artists covering a range of themes based on the works of H. P. Lovecraft. Unfortunately, the variety is so wide that it sometimes leads to a disjointed reading experience. Standout stories include William Messner-Loebs’s “Cthulhu House,” a hilariously evil take on reality shows like Big Brother, and Christine Boylan’s “The Elite,” which is actually closer to Lovecraft’s “The Colour Out of Space” than his Cthulhu-centric stories. While familiarity with Lovecraft’s originals will be helpful, readers can enjoy this volume without having read the others in this series. The “Fall of Cthulhu” series, on the other hand, is one story spread across several books, so readers will need to be familiar with the other volumes in order to understand the plot in Godwar. It is a long and tangled story about Lucifer breaking Cy Morgan out of Arkham Hospital and taking him to R’Lyeh, which involves going to Miskatonic University to figure out where R’Lyeh is located. Meanwhile, Abdul Alhazred has been brought back to life to write a new chapter of the Necronomicon and summon Cthulhu from the watery depths. While keeping track of this plot might lead readers to madness, the artwork in both books is a glossy full-color wonder to behold. Never have wings, tentacles, and crawling chaos looked so good.–Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library
