Robert M. Price has been a fan of H.P. Lovecraft since the Lancer paperback collections of 1967 appeared. He began writing scholarly articles and humorous pieces on HPL and the Cthulhu Mythos in 1981. His celebrated semi-pro zine Crypt of Cthulhu began as a quarterly fanzine for the Esoteric Order of Dagon Amateur Press Association in 1981 and made it to 109 issues. Also a worshipper of Robert E. Howard, he was the first to publish some scores of Howard’s stories in a series of Cryptic Publications chapbooks. In 1990 he began editing Mythos anthologies for Fedogan & Bremer, Arkham House, and Chaosium, Inc., and still does! His fiction has been collected in Blasphemies and Revelations. Centipede Books will soon be issuing his five-volume annotated edition of the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft. Price serves as the literary executor for his friend Lin Carter and continues the adventures of Carter’s character Thongor of Lemuria in a growing series of short stories.

"What, pray tell," asks editor Robert Price, "is wrong with sequels?" This remarkable stewpot of original stories inspired by H.P. Lovecraft answers that question decisively: Not a thing is wrong with them! Indeed, everything is deliciously right.
Lovecrafts' fictional world, after all, is well worthy of emulation, so it's no surprise to find it generating sequels like these tales. You see, it's rather like natural selection: What is successful in the gene pool survives to copy itself into thefuture, and what we have here is the welcome spectacle of Lovecraft's fictional DNA replicating itself with a vengeance. Darwin would be proud. Lovecraft would be mystified. Readers will be pleased.
So climb abour the creaky bus, take that sinister ride to Innsmouth and Arkham and other unspeakable places, and see how good a job these contemporary writers have done of proving that old Lovecraftian maxim true:" That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die."

Good to see Fedogan & Bremer back in the tentacled saddle with an anthology of excellent stories and art by two of the masters of the field in Gahan Wilson and Tim Kirk. Looking forward already to their next production.
