"This tome contains a wonderful collection of stories that test one’s sanity. Tales of otherworldly beings and cosmic horror that would have made Howard Phillips Lovecraft proud. It might have even made him smile. If you know Lovecraft, you’ll get that. Wink, wink. These authors have proven that the Old Ones, the Elder Gods are alive and well....a must-have for your collection." Killer Nashville
