"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Replete with explicit sex and gore, Pelan's undistinguished Lovecraft pastiche lacks the subtle suggestiveness that was the hallmark of Lovecraft's best work. Once again, an alien tentacled monstrosity is attempting to take over the world, employing a cadre of followers to spread an infection that would convert all of humanity into his servants. Pelan interweaves his account of the spread of the contagion in Seattle with brief interludes that portray many of history's greatest monsters as prey of the Great Old Ones. Those seeking a scary grafting of Lovecraft's themes onto the modern world would be happier reading Robert Bloch's Strange Eons. Pelan is the editor with Michael Reaves of Shadows over Baker Street, a story anthology that mixes Sherlockian mystery with Lovecraftian horror. (Mar.)

Book Description Cemetery Dance Publications, Forest Hill, MD, 2006. Hard Cover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Allen Koszowski (illustrator). First Edition - Limited/Numbered. In his classic story "The Call of Cthulhu," H. P. Lovecraft wrote: "The cult would never die till the stars came right again.Then the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom." Lovecraft was right, though he only glimpsed a tiny sliver of the true horror that governs the secret history of the world. The truth is much, much worse as several young people are about to discover. The miracle drug "Essence" opens doors of perception hitherto undreamed of, but there's a heavy price to be paid. The price is to belong body and soul to nameless horrors that were old when the earth was young. Nobody rides for free, and damn few get out alive. -- Book and dust jacket in brand spanking new condition; not a remaindered, library, or book club copy.
