Neil Gaiman has written several Lovecraftian short stories: The famous A Study in Emerald that everyone raves about (I loved it), and I, Cthulhu (didn’t love it). But my favorite is Only the End of the World Again, a sequel of sorts to Roger Zelazny’s A Night in the Lonesome October. (And if you haven’t read THAT, you’re in for a treat.)
In Only the End of the World Again, “a weary werewolf once again joins in the eternal battle to prevent the freeing of dark forces that were first revealed in A Night in the Lonesome October — but this time, none of the other good guys show up.” It’s a wonderful story, and a tribute to Roger Zelazny.

By the way, I just learned that it was adapted into a graphic novel — I’m definitely going to have to get that!
