Product Details


Tentacular fiction abounds in Bob Price's new mythos anthology Acolytes of Cthulhu. The anthology assembles twenty-five rare mythos tales, dating from the Thirties through the Nineties, from writers as diverse as Jorges Luis Borges, Gustav Meyrink, Manly Wade Wellman, and Neil Gaiman. Gahan Wilson provides the cover art. Publisher's Weekly says, "Searchers after Lovecraftian horror need look no further than Acolytes of Cthulhu, edited by Robert M. Price. This reprint anthology features 28 tales by mostly minor disciples, though there are a couple of big names (Borges, Neil Gaiman), plus a rare youthful offering from leading HPL scholar S.T.Joshi. The prolific Price provides his usual entertaining and erudite introduction, while the Gahan Wilson jacket is a delight." Contents: Introduction--Robert M.
