This is one of the best Mythos anthologies I have read in years. Great new stories by talented writers (of Mythos short fic, at least) you've probably never heard of. Absolutely no reprints, which is refreshing for this type of anthology. This cook should serve as inspiration for other Mythos collection editors-you don't need to recycle stories by the big names, you can actually bring in fresh material from up and coming/undiscovered writers and and your collection will be instantly bumped up a couple stars.

My main issue with this collection is the rather misleading title. I was expecting a book filled with stories featuring people doing it with people, people doing it with monsters, monsters doing it with monsters, and while there are a few of those, the main reason "erotica" is in the title seems to be that characters in most stories think about sex, or maybe say the word "boobs" or something. A bit disappointing on that front. If you are a fan of Lovecraftian fiction, but wouldn't be into a collection of erotica, do not fear-this is very light on the erotica, and heavy on the excellent Mythos storytelling.
