The Gods of HP Lovecraft Kindle Edition
About the book: Lovecraft's bestiary of gods has had a major influence on the horror scene from the time these sacred names were first evoked. Cthulhu, Azathoth, Nyarlathotep, Yog-Sothoth--this pantheon of the horrific calls to mind the very worst of cosmic nightmares and the very darkest signs of human nature. The Gods of H.P. Lovecraft brings together twelve all-new Mythos tales from:
Cthulhu (Adam Nevill) - Yog-Sothoth (Martha Wells) - Azathoth (Laird Barron) - Nyarlathotep (Bentley Little) - Shub-Niggurath (David Liss) - Tsathoggua (Brett Talley) - The Mi-Go (Christopher Golden & James A. Moore) - Night-gaunts (Jonathan Maberry) - Elder Things (Joe Lansdale) - Great Race (Rachel Caine) - Yig (Douglas Wynne) - The Deep Ones (Seanan McGuire)
"H. P. Lovecraft and his Mythos have seen a resurgence in popularity in the last 10 years, in both popular and scholarly circles, but this collection stands out among the crowd. Editor French selected 12 of the key deities from Lovecraft's universe and handed them to some of today's best and most popular dark-fiction writers, including Jonathan Maberry, Bentley Little, David Liss, Joe Lansdale, Christopher Golden, and Seanan McGuire, with the direction that they should craft a story from their own imagination, in their own voice, but featuring their assigned Lovecraftian god and paying homage to that character's origin. The result is a book that serves as an excellent introduction to the Mythos for novices but that also will be grabbed up by Lovecraft enthusiasts, who will love seeing their beloved cosmic horror deities of the past being reinterpreted by some of their favorite writers of today. Even taken out of the Lovecraftian frame, all 12 stories are scary and well crafted with plenty to offer readers looking for a post-Halloween fix. Take, for example, horror up-and-comer Douglas Wynne's "Rattled," a terrifying story featuring Yig, Father of Serpents, that also works as a moving coming-of-age tale. This volume also contains original artwork and a commentary on each deity by Lovecraft scholar Donald Tyson. These essays are particularly compelling as readers encounter them immediately after being immersed in each God's terrifying world. This is a must for all horror collections."--ALA Booklist Starred Review
"THE GODS OF H. P. LOVECRAFT is a dream of an anthology. For anyone who loves Lovecraft, August Derleth, Robert E. Howard, and any of the others who have kept this mythos alive, make some room on your bookshelf. The anthology collects the twelve principal deities of the Lovecraftian Mythos, hands them over to some of the world's best writers and stands back. There isn't one name I did not know and many already on my own bookshelves, so this really is a treat. As if that wasn't enough we also get some great artwork and individual commentary on each of the deities by Donald Tyson."--Derek Gunn, The Big Thrill (ITW)

Many of the shorts are connected in theme and engaging. I have it on paperback but the Kindle app is just more convenient. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Also good to see John Coulthart's illustrations. In my opinion, he is simply the best Lovecraft illustrator around. H.P's creatures are not easy to visualize, and even less so to actually depict satisfactorily. Coulthard hasn't let me down yet.
