Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Upon his untimely death, H.P. Lovecraft, the early twentieth-century master of “weird fiction,” left behind descriptions of 221 unwritten stories. Some were only a few ambiguous words long, others were complete plot outlines, and all of them died with their author.

Now, 70 years later, writers from all over the country have come together to bring these untold stories to life. The only requirement for the writers—to create a piece that fulfilled every part of Lovecraft’s original vision. The results are as varied as the artists behind them. Inside this book waits horror, science fiction, comedy, memoir, experimental text art, and one extremely short novel.

Some of these stories will take away your worries. Others will take away your sleep. And a few will take you to another world, a world where weird fiction still lives, and the way home may prove difficult to find indeed…

As most people will tell you: this collection is hit-and-miss. But the "hits" are memorable enough for me to call this a good collection of stories.

Joseph Fink's novella "Relative Damnation" is the clear standout in my opinion, which should not be a surprise, given the writing talent he's already demonstrated in the Night Vale podcasts (and also the fact that he had more space to develop a story than any of the other writers). But "Levittown (36. Disintegration)" by Mark Farr stands out as the most "Lovecraftian" story of the bunch; none of the other writers came near as close to capturing the nihilism-as-horror theme that holds Lovecraft's weird stories about tentacle monsters together.

Beyond those two, "The Horror on the Ebon Stair" is a very enjoyable parody of Lovecraft's style as well as an interesting story in its own right, and "Vacancy at the Fenrick Inn," though I have a hard time defending it from a literary perspective, is a memorable-enough scary story. "Odoriko Music" is incredibly bizarre and impressionistic little sketch, but I can't forget the image of Rururururu The Many Dog, and it deserves a mention for that creation alone.

A handful of the other stories falter on doing poorly what "Ororiko Music" and "Levittown" did well: at least half of the works in this collection rely on avant-garde structures and imagery rather than straightforward storytelling, and in many instances it feels like a bit of a cop-out in absence of a solid story idea (I thought "KPZ STRAZ HYPHEN STARS" suffered from this especially).

Overall, though, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A few of the stories are fantastic, most of the others range from great to decent, and there are only two or three real duds. If you like Lovecraft, this is at least worth a look.

As any collection of short stories from different authors, I enjoyed some of the stories more than others. Favorite one was the Egyptian story at the beginning of the book. Thoroughly enjoyed the premise of the book.

I'd recommend this to anyone. On another note, I must type more words in order to submit a review. Voila
