Welcome to the seventh entry in this series!
Mike Davis here. Recently, I asked Lovecraftian authors, editors, and reviewers to send me a list of five of their favorite Lovecraftian short stories (that are not written by HPL himself).
It’s important to note that these lists are not our “top five” Lovecraftian short stories — for most of us, that would be next to impossible to determine. It’s simply a list of five stories that we love, and that we feel are important to Lovecraftian fiction.
This is a great way to discover some Lovecraftian tales you might not have known about. So, without further ado, here is a list of five Lovecraftian short stories recommended by author Cody Goodfellow:
- Black Man With A Horn, by T.E.D. Klein. (In Dark Gods.)
- Sticks, by Karl Edward Wagner. (In Where the Summer Ends: The Best Horror Stories of Karl Edward Wagner, Volume 1., and The Book of Cthulhu 2.)
- Cold Print, by Ramsey Campbell. (In Cold Print.)
- The Inhabitant Of The Lake, by Ramsey Campbell. (In The Inhabitant Of The Lake.)
- A Colder War, by Charles Stross. (In The Book of Cthulhu.)
