Lovecraft Alive

by John Shirley
Paperback
Publication Date: 04/07/2016
RRP  $29.47 $29.25
Acclaimed novelist John Shirley has written novels and tales that span the spectrum of imaginative literature, from science fiction to psychological terror to supernatural horror. One of the writers that inspired him to become a writer was H. P. Lovecraft, and in this volume Shirley pays tribute to the titan of weird fiction with a series of imaginative elaborations upon Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.

These stories range from narratives that feature Lovecraft himself as a shadowy character ("When Death Wakes Me to Myself") to historical tales where Lovecraftian entities emerge at critical points in the past ("Those Who Come to Dagon," "The Rime of the Cosmic Mariner," "Broken on the Wheel of Time") to vibrant tales melding Lovecraftian terror with modern technology ("At Home with Azathoth," "The Holy Grace of Cthulhu"). The volume concludes with a scintillating unpublished novella, "Broken on the Wheel of Time," elaborating upon conceptions found in Lovecraft's "The Shadow out of Time."

"Putting this book together, I wondered what Lovecraft would have thought of it, and I found myself imagining Lovecraft traveling in time and reading my stories. Though HPL might need a cultural "translator" for these stories, since they're all twenty-first-century fare, I think he would at least recognize them as refractions of his work."-From John Shirley's Introduction
