The Cthulhu Mythos is one of the 20th century's most singularly recognizable literary creations. Initially created by H. P. Lovecraft and a group of his amorphous contemporaries (the so-called "Lovecraft Circle"), The Cthulhu Mythos story cycle has taken on a convoluted, cyclopean life of its own. Some of the most prodigious writers of the 20th century, and some of the most astounding writers of the 21st century have planted their seeds in this fertile soil. The Book of Cthulhu harvests the weirdest and most corpulent crop of these modern mythos tales.
"Interesting Stories & Well Read"
Aramis Reyne is an old space captain, hounded by arthritis and haunted by memories of war. He makes ends meet by running mail and supplies to the farthest, darkest reaches of the system known as the fringe. When Reyne and his ragtag crew salvage a dead ship during one of their runs, they find themselves thrown into a galactic conspiracy involving warship captains, secret organizations, rebels, and pirates. Reyne must confront wartime ghosts and dust off old skills or else he'll watch thousands die, again.
"Really Great Read"
The Long List Anthology is designed to recognize the short works that were nominated for the 2015 Hugo Awards but did not make it into the top five short list for the final ballot. Thus, voted into the Hugo Award's long list of works - the top 15 works nominated for each category - were these nine short stories and three novelettes, now made available to a wider audience by award-winning narrators.
The bombs have dropped. Thousands and thousands of atomic, then H, then the unthinkable Cobolt bombs. Yet people still live and survive and hope. Oh yes, some can survive even this but - at what cost?
"I was 100 miles from Nowhere - and I mean that literally - when I spotted this girl out of the corner of my eye. I'd been keeping an extra lookout because I still expected the other undead bugger left over from the murder party at Nowhere to be stalking me." In a Post-apocalyptic world, the few people left must be strong. And must not hesitate to kill. Of course, killing another Deathlander was one of the chief pleasures and urges of all the solitary wanders in this vast wasteland. Kill and kill again.
This Leiber story, loaded with his usual tongue-in-cheek extraploaton takes recent trends in bread making and pushes them to their logical limits. Just how far from wheat can bread get? Listen to this story and see. Of course there are robots involved who uh…. complicate things a bit.
He went where no Martian ever went before - but would he come out - or had he gone for good?
