Description - The Children Of Cthulhu by John Pelan

Descend to the depths of primal horror with this chilling collection of original stories drawn from H. P. Lovecraft's shocking, terrifying, and eerily prescient Cthulhu Mythos.

In twenty-one dark visions, a host of outstanding contemporary writers tap into our innermost fears, with tales set in a misbegotten new world that could have been spawned only by the master of the macabre himself, H. P. Lovecraft. Inside you'll find:

"Details" by China Mieville: A curious boy discovers that within the splinters of cracked wood or the tangle of tree branches, the devil is in the details.

"Visitation" by James Robert Smith: When Edgar Allan Poe arrives, a callow man finally gets what he always wanted--and what he may eternally despise.

"Meet Me on the Other Side" by Yvonne Navarro: A couple in love with terror travels beyond their wildest dreams--and into their nightmares.

"A Fatal Exception Has Occured At . . ." by Alan Dean Foster: Internet terrorism extends far beyond transmitting threats of evil.
