Freaky book, cool and bizarre artwork- some of the stories not th ebest, but gets top stars for atmosphere and execution.
Dave Sticher
Oh man, this book is one of the most 90s things I've ever read. In a good way. Does a great job of steering away from the usual Lovecraftian cliches. The Michael Gira section was probably my favorite.

Not many comments on here. Thats because whats in this one really is indescribable.
If you hold this book in your hands... BURN THIS AT ONCE!

No, not really. What a waste of a well-written if oddly and transgressively occult collection of works.
Its something akin to Aleister Crowley meets The Old Ones.
Wouldn't want this landing up in a mental hospital. Think of what might happen...

Brain-expanding, if over pretentious in many cases. But the good stories are worth a look, and the imagery is impressive and often gloriously repellant throughout. If you can find it, this is a worthwhile read for any Lovecraft fan after something more challenging to get their claws into.
Quentin
Stories by Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, William S. Burroughs, Michael Gira of the Swans, and many many others. It's probably the sickest collection of Lovecraft-inspired stories I've read, and it's great.

Recommended to Federiken by: Autor, supongo
Libro que evidentemente puse como to-read porque sale Moore en la lista de autores. Después habrá que ver qué tiene y si alguna vez se editó en castellano, que es lo que suelo hacer.
Bill
A varied assortment of recent (not new) Lovecraftian fiction and essays. When its good its very good. Some of the creepiest wordsmithing I've read. Almost Poe-etic with its cosmic horrifiicness. Some stories didn't do it for me though. Overall the wheat is worth the chaff. Nice illustrations throughout.
