Anthology with Lovecraftian horrors & Cthulhu Mythos monsters of insanity.
New tales of the gruesomely weird. Innsmouth, Sesqua Valley and other areas are tainted, countries as far apart as Australia and Denmark are tainted, and on continents like Asia you can't escape it either - no place is safe from the ultimate fear. From the deepest oceans to shadowy woods, dark cities, across wars and unspeakable realms of the unknown - to forbidden books, strange cultists, dread lore & mad, ancient Gods from beyond time & space. The world is not safe; no one is safe. Welcome to this collection of ELDRITCH HORRORS: DARK TALES.
Stories by Paul S. Kemp (of Forgotten Realms fame), W. H. Pugmire (with new Sesqua Valley tale!), Gary Hill, Thomas Strømsholt, Paul Mackintosh, Leigh Blackmore, Don Webb, Henrik Sandbeck Harksen, Dan Clore, Blake Wilson, Linda Navroth, Ron Shiflet, Simon Bleaken, Benjamin Szumskyj.

As far as anthologies go this one ranks pretty close to Joshi’s “Black Wings”. And while not every tale struck a chord with me, those that did I consider to be some of the finest weird fiction being published today. The absolute standouts: Thomas Strømsholt’s “Devouring Darkness Hovers”, Blake Wilson’s “The Door to Nowhere”, and Paul Mackintosh’s “The People of the Island”. All of these are five-star stories, and make this anthology a must to acquire.
