THE CHILDREN OF CTHULHU is an engaging horror anthology written by many of the more popular genre authors of the last decade. The twenty-three contributors provide entertaining tales that would not turn HP Lovecraft over in his grave as many Cthulu ¿experts¿ do. However, though the stories engage the audience and are fun to read, they don¿t feel like a visit to that weird Lovecraft mythverse. As an aside to the editors: ¿if it ain¿t broke¿, cost it anyway because you still may find a bigger payback. This short story collection provides a big payback to horror fans, but Lovecraft fanatics will feel another let down as the original remains undisputedly the best even after seven decades of ¿fixing it¿.

I was Expecting a Little Better I think these short stories barely came close to the insanity-inducing horror that is Lovecraft's Cthulu mythos. One short story did come close to capturing it, "Long Meg and Her Daughters". An equal blend of detective and horror fiction, this story follows an English detective on the trail of a serial rapist who serves a more darker entity. Overall this anthology isn't all bad.
