really liked it

Cthulhurotica is a collection of short stories that complement the world created in the works of Lovecraft. The short stories combine science fiction, fantasy, horror, and romance/sex. While I wouldn't personally classify it as erotica, there is a definite theme of sexuality throughout the collection.

This book is not exactly what I was expecting, although I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I guess I was predicting to be disturbed by this collection to the point where I wouldn't enjoy it. Mainly I think that is because I knew this book was outside my standard genre comfort zone (with the exceptions of it being short stories). While I would say that some of the short stories are disturbing, I found that most of the them are more intriguing. That is why I really enjoyed this book. I felt this collection was a great exploration of pairing creepy, terrifying, and even horrific themes with other themes such a love, marriage, romance, friendship and sexuality. Overall, I enjoyed not only the writing (which was pretty good, in general) but the uniqueness of this collection of short stories. As with any collection, some stories I really liked and some I even hated but I would recommend this book to anyone willing to try something a little different.
