9781614981305: Cult of the Dead and Other Weird and Lovecraftian Tales

Lois H. Gresh is a renowned and bestselling author of weird fiction, science fiction, and many works of nonfiction in these fields. This volume, her first short story collection in four years, she collects many of her tales that ingeniously and imaginatively adapt themes and motifs from the work of H. P. Lovecraft. Gresh shares with Lovecraft a thorough grounding in the sciences of physics, biology, and chemistry, and adds an exhaustive knowledge of computer science along with a prose style of exquisite fluency and suppleness in the crafting of tales that meld terror with pathos.

Some tales take us to the remote corners of the world, such as the Peru of "Cult of the Dead" or the Antarctica of "Devil's Bathtub." Like Lovecraft, Gresh fuses weirdness and science fiction in such tales as "Mandelbrot Mindrot" and "Willie the Protector." Lovecraft's "The Shadow over Innsmouth" has been a particularly fruitful source of inspiration for Gresh, as such tales as "Dreams of Death" and "Necrotic Cove" attest. In all, this collection proclaims Lois H. Gresh as one of the towering figures in contemporary weird fiction.

"Gresh's elegant and mellifluous prose, the imaginative power of her weird conceptions, and her skill in leading the reader step by step to a terrifying dénouement make every one of her tales a well-crafted jewel of weird fiction. And that is the greatest bond she shares with H. P. Lovecraft."-From S. T. Joshi's Foreword

Lois H. Gresh is the author of such novels as Blood and Ice (2010) and Nightfall (2012) and the short story collection Eldritch Evolutions (2011). She is also the author of The Twilight Companion (2008), The Hunger Games Companion (2011), and The Divergent Companion (2014). She lives in Rochester, New York.
