Exactly! I've come to tickle your funnybone.
Oh, and also to eat your soul.
In 1928, Weird Tales debuted “The Call of Cthulhu” by H.P. Lovecraft, and the Cthulhu Mythos was born. In the 90 years since, dozens of writers have dared play within HPL’s mind-blowing creation—but never with such terrifyingly funny results. Now top authors lampoon, parody, and subvert Lovecraft’s Mythos. See Cthulhu cut short his nap at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean to invade North Korea! Watch the Unspeakable Eater of Souls solve crimes on the pulpy streets of Innsmouth! And speaking of largish Elder Gods, listen to a plastic Elvis doll dispense folksy advice straight from the heart of the Emperor of Dread! Again Ol’ Tentacle-Face is confronted by frail humans who dare defy the Incarnation of Ultimate Evil—but this time not by brave monster hunters and terrified villagers, but by fan fiction writers, clueless college students, and corporate lawyers (okay, we realize it’s hard to know who to root for in that confrontation).
Twenty-three mirthful manifestations within the Cthulhu Mythos from best-selling and award-winning authors Neil Gaiman, Mike Resnick, Esther Friesner, Ken Liu, Jody Lynn Nye, Laura Resnick, Nick Mamatas, and many more!
Guaranteed to leave you howling. Because if you look at it just right, there’s nothing funnier than a soul writhing in cosmic horror before a tentacled maw of malevolence. As HPL himself saith: “From even the greatest of horrors irony is seldom absent.”
At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Everyone says it was better in the Good Old Days. Before the Dark Lord subjugated us. Before he gave all the good land to his ogres, orcs and trolls, reducing the civilized races to serfdom and the dirty work: pig farming, sewer cleaning, veterinary medicine.
But even before that happened, things weren't that much different for the veterinarians. Everyone cheered the heroes who rode their unicorn chargers into combat against the Dark Lord's dragons, but no one ever remembered who treated the unicorns’ phosphine burns afterward. The only real difference is that now I'm treating the dragons. Today I have to save one's life. Know what fewmets are? No? Then make a sacrifice of thanks right now to whatever gods you worship, because I have only a few hours to figure a way to get them flowing back out of the Dark Lord’s favorite dragon. Yeah, from the other end. And that’s just my most illustrious client.
I’ve got orcs and trolls who might eat me and dark elf barons who might sue
me if their bloodhawks and chimeras don’t pull through. And that doesn’t even consider the
possibility that the old hag with the basilisk might show up.
The only thing that’s gone right this evening is finding Harriet to be my veterinary assistant.
She’s almost a witch, which just might save us both. If we don’t kill each other first.

The moon is a harsh neighborhood. But for 16 year old twins Paul and Jael Wardhey, it's not just dangerous - it's getting downright haunted.
Life is hard enough when just going outside can kill you. It's even harder on Paul and Jael: no one cuts the sheriff's kids any slack, and everyone knows them. But if everyone knows them, why are they suddenly seeing strangers on a Moon colony, where no one enters without permission?
When strange men -- and a mysterious, frightened girl named Cynthia -- begin appearing and disappearing, they find it hard enough to believe it themselves, let alone to convince anyone else.
It's up to Paul and Jael to save Cynthia from whatever is chasing her.
But is Cynthia truly the victim she appears to be? Or is she a danger beyond their imagination?
- ★★★★★ - I truly enjoyed this work of YA science fiction. It is obvious that Huggins read and enjoyed Heinlein's youth novels, but also can't help but remind of The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress as well. The children in this book have many of the same issues that most children have, but they have to grow up fast in an environment as harsh as a moon colony. Perfect for children who are looking to expand their reading. milesjon
- ★★★★★ A very successful depiction of life on a lunar basis with credible, interesting figures, especially when the two siblings interact with each other, which should seem familiar to everyone who has siblings. Also impressive is the description of the protagonist suffering from a disability, whose condition was a reason for emigrating to the lunar colony... Conclusion: Highly recommended not only for teenagers, but also for adults! Ralph Marcus Seibel
- ★★★★★ When I bought it, I missed the fact that it was a youth book. Nevertheless, I found it really exciting, the characters sympathetic and the, in my opinion, quite realistic descriptions of life in a lunar colony I found very interesting. A star deduction for the bit cheesy end, but good, it's a youth book and there something like that might fit again. Sophia
