"This is a
terrifically absorbing, thought-provoking and finely crafted anthology
encompassing a grand thematic structure. Bravo!" - Creature Feature's Tomb of Dark Delights.
"This anthology is packed with talented up and coming writers, who pay their dues to Lovecraft while keeping things appropriate for a contemporary readership. Torn Realities is a book that belongs in any horror fan's collection. ...a great homage, a book Lovecraft would be proud of." - Bloody Disgusting.com
Includes Genre Defining Classic Rawhead Rex from Horror Icon Clive Barker!
This is not your typical Cthulhu anthology!
"Torn Realities" deals with Lovecraft's themes of forbidden knowledge, the idea that we are essentially untethered from the workaday world. "Torn Realities" explores lunacy-inducing creatures predating the dawn of man- keeping Lovecraft's most famous theme (the idea of mind-boggling other gods) more general. The stories in this book actively seek the gray area in horror with tales of regular people in irregular situations.
Contains 19 Lovecraft inspired stories from: J. W. Schnarr, Jamie Lackey, C. Deskin Rink, Philip Roberts, C. M. Saunders, Clive Barker, Brad Carter, Kathryn Board, James S. Dorr, Gerard Houarner, Kenneth W. Cain, Joseph Williams, Mitch Richmond, Lee Davis, Matt Moore, Jessica McHugh, Bob Mustin, Jeff Suess, and Allie Marini Batts.
