Series: Cthulhu Mythos

Summary (From the publisher):

Like any eclectic catalog of dark music, this volume of stories explores many levels of emotion, each writer composing his own unique movement to the symphony. Here, you will find a wide range of voices, some spinning tales of pure, deep dread, much as might be found in the most successful works of HPL himself. Others venture into territory that the Old Gent would never have imagined, or wanted to imagine...There's even a touch of whimsy to be found, yet always mingled with the strain of darkness like that faced by Erich Zann in his garret in the rue d'Auseil.

Song of Cthulhu is a collection of 19 stories of otherworldly terror, born in the abyss conjured by Erich Zann's violin in the rue d'Ausseil. Featuring such influential authors as H. P. Lovecraft, Ramsey Campbell, Hugh B. Cave, Fred Chappell, Thomas F. Monteleone, and many others, Song of Cthulhu explores the unknown spheres beyond sound, its pulsating rhythm punctuated by moments of dark beauty, breathtaking suspense, and nerve-shattering horror. Put on some atmospheric music, dim the lights, and settle in with this literary symphony whose notes rise from the hidden depths of R'lyeh itself.
