Summary (From the publisher):

For more than eighty years H.P. Lovecraft has inspired witers of supernatural fiction, artists, musicians, filmmakers, and gamers. His themes of cosmic indifference, the utteer insignificance of humankind, minds invaded by the alien, and the horrors of history - written as a pervasive atmosphere of unexplained dread - remain not only viable motifs, but are more relevant than ever as we explore the mysteries of a universe in which our planet is infinitesimal and climatic change is overwhelming it.

In the early twenty-first century the best supernatural writers no longer imitate Lovecraft, but they are profoundly influenced by the genre and the mythos he created. New Cthulhu: The Recent Weird presents some of the best of this new Lovecraftian fiction - bizarre, subtle, atmospheric, metaphysical,psychological, filled with strange creatures and stranger characters - eldritch, unsettling, evocative, and darkly appealing.
