Pelan's novella has a lot of familiar elements that Lovecraft fans will enjoy, and has added his own spin with a refreshing backstory that ties together history's real life mass murderers to the Great Old Ones. The main story moves a little too quickly for my taste and loses some needed atmosphere and character development, but it's still a lot of fun with plentiful helpings of sex, violence, gore, and of course, tentacles. It's a solid entry in Cemetery Dance's continuing novella series.
