THE STARRY WISDOM: A Tribute to H.P. Lovecraft - A Collection of Stories by Various Authors Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft
Edited by D.M. Mitchell, Alan Moore & Others...
COVER ART by John Coulthart
A collection of contemporary visions of cosmic mutation, transformation and madness - written by various authors - inspired by the life and writings of H.P. Lovecraft - these stories often reflect his strangely persistent re-occuring themes. The ancient and old merge and mutate convulsively with modern technology...
Here the primal beings of Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos stalk a post-modern landscape of social collapse, ethnic cleansing, genetic engineering, nuclear devastation and nightmare prophecies. Includes the entire Graphic Novel version of 'Call of the Cthulhu' illustrated by John Coulthart.
The undercurrents of sexual and ecological displacement which powered much of Lovecraft's work have been laid bare in many of these stories - a great tribute to this much maligned genius revealing him to be a true prophet of the 20th century.

Mitchell / Michael Gira / Don Webb / David Conway / Rick Grimes / Robert M. Price / D.F. Lewis / Simon Whitechapel / Stephen Sennitt / Peter Smith and more....
