In 2009, Dark Quest published Dear Cthulhu, Have a Dark Day, a compilation of advice columns from every one's favorite Great Old One. Sales must have been OK as they now return for a second collection, Good Advice for Bad People by Patrick Thomas. Mr. Thomas' columns have been appearing in genre publications for years, I know at least as far back as the days of Cthulhu Sex. The bottom line is if you enjoyed the previous volume you will similarly be engagaed by this one. Otherwise, don't feel like you are missing out on much. I guess between the sort of stories that grace the pages of genre fanzines, mostly read by ultra-enthusiasts, a letter or two to Cthulhu would likely be a pleasant enough diversion. Here there is no leavening of the material with anything else and frankly I found it tedious. While some were witty enough, they all sort of ran together. Like the last book, perhaps you could keep this on your nightstand and read one or two entries between short stories/chapters in your current anthology/novel. Production qualities are pretty good although I saw a few scattered typos. Mr. Thomas provides the cover art, which was a pretty good Cthulhu. For the $9.95 list price the page count of 92, with text starting on page 7, is a bit meagre.
