The ongoing fight against the immortal Elder Gods enters the modern age. Magic, mayhem, and murder no longer reign in dusty books discovered in decrepit libraries. Today's monsters can be called be more than uncanny rituals in candlelit basements. Madness lurks on the internet and lives in the locker room.

Though aimed at teenagers, this is a collection that is sure to wow anyone who likes their horror anthologies teeming with tentacles and misshapen things that go bump in the night (or day, or next universe over...) Packed with some of the best authors science fiction, fantasy, and horror have to offer, this collection makes the most of Lovecraft's mythos, to produce some of the best short stories I've read this year.

There's really no stories in here I didn't enjoy in some way - usually an

If you want a YA short fiction anthology full of monster punching, look no further! I became excited when I flipped through the table of contents, and I was not disappointed.

Away Game by Seanan McGuire is fun, and I love the eldritch cheer squad way more that the events of the story. I would read more about these girls. Pickman's Daughter by J. C.

Really solid collection of shorts focused on a central theme of YA + hunter/hunted + Cthullu mythos. Some well-known authors contributed to the anthology so the overall quality is way above average. Nice mix of different themes and directions. Good eclectic mix of content. As in most cases, some stories were well above the level of others, but overall a worthy collection.

Shades of H.P. Lovecraft, oh my. If you like that sort of thing.

Like any short story collection, some are better than others but none are awful and more than a couple are fantastic.
