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...

Great Cover Art by Peter Smith & John Balance from Threshold House/Coil 

A collection of contemporary visions of cosmic transformation, mutation 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 - some of which have become chilling realities.

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.
