Editorial Reviews

Vaginal Fantasy - Felicia Day
“I appreciated the writing and thought it was really well written,” Felicia Day
“Thank YOU for putting the Love back in Lovecraft. Or at least the lust!” Bonnie Burton
“Each story had different kinds of scary moments, different kinds of sexy moments.” Veronica Belmont
“I also liked that the sexuality was really fluid,” Kiala Kazebee
Innsmouth Free Press - J. Keith Haney
I had high hopes that it would give me an experience that was mindful of its roots while going into territory that is relatable to a contemporary readership. I am happy to report that Ms. Cuinn and Co. have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. In fact, I would like to go on record as to say Cthulhurotica may well be the first great original Mythos story collection of the 21st Century. Read it!
Boston Book Bums - Biblioholic Review
Instead of making obvious literary comparisons, we believe Cthulhurotica is best matched to a singular piece of Japanese art- The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife. The 1814 print of a shell diver sexually entwined with a pair of bug eye octopi perfectly captures the essence of Cthulhurotica.

This anthology of 20 plus stories is about stimulation of types defined by you the reader- terrifying, creepy, arousing, provocative- take your pick.
Popcorn for Breakfast - Robert Beveridge
I grant you, by staying away from porn, Cuinn ended up treading a line in many places between Cthulhurotica and Cthulhuromance, which is not necessarily an awful thing at all (the most obvious example of this is Don Pizarro’s “The C-Word”, which, perhaps not coincidentally, ended up being my favorite story in the volume).
Parlor of Horror - Michael Thomas-Knight
It relays a world that is very much like it is today with a bit of Cthulhu around the edges of its reality. It is more like an aphrodisiac than the main event and never gets too harsh…. Cthulhurotica made for some enjoyable reading and entertained in its melding of seemingly incompatible worlds.

    Horror and Sex

    How to describe Cthulhurotica, well, odd comes to mind. Macabre meet sex and the end result is this anthology. Wow. If you are faint of heart, avoid.
