From the editorial team who brought you Shotguns V. Cthulhu and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner comes a new anthology of Mythos fiction unlike any other. Pulse-pounding Romantic poetry meets cosmic horror in this exciting collection from the rising stars of the late 18th and early 19th-centuries. Steel your nerves, reach into your velvet-lined writing case, and tie tight your heart strings as humanity takes up quills against the monsters and gods of H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. Grab your sense of sentiment, your laudanum, your ennui with modern society. Confront Titans, Satan, and most horrible of all, albatrosses. Fight in the past, the past and the past, from the birth of the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings to the end of the world. Escape by horse, carriage, and self-imposed exile. Above all, remember to count your ink pots…you may need the last one for yourself.
Relentlessly hurtling you into madness and a stirring depth of emotion are:
