Here are 10 new Lovecraftian books you should know about!

If you’re looking for more Lovecraftian fiction to read, you’re in luck! Here’s a list of ten new (or upcoming) Lovecraftian books:

Carter and Lovecraft, by Jonathan L. Howard: “A Pandora’s box loaded with all the wonderfully twisted stuff I love, including a two-fisted homicide cop turned PI, warped realities, a mysterious bookstore, the Cthulhu mythos, a dash of romance, and creepy fish-men. What’s not to love? Jonathan L. Howard knows how to show his readers a wickedly good time.” ― Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Dead Ringers

Delta Green: Extraordinary Renditions, edited by Shane IveyLovecraftian cosmic terror meets modern-day conspiracy in 18 tales of horror and personal apocalypse!

The Dulwich Horror, by David HamblingInspired by the Cthulhu Mythos of H. P. Lovecraft, this stylish new collection of adventure stories fizzes with wit and invention. They can be enjoyed separately, but read them in one sitting and the pieces fit horribly together into a larger and more terrible nightmare. These tales constitute David Hambling s initial foray into the realm of Lovecraftian fiction. The fertility of imagination, the crisp character delineations, and the smooth-flowing prose that we find in these seven tales leave us wishing for more of the same, and Hambling will no doubt oblige in the coming years. For now, we can sit back and relish a brace of stories that not only evoke the shade of the dreamer from Providence, but which that dreamer himself would have enjoyed to the full. S. T. Joshi (from his foreword)

A Mythos Grimmly, edited by Jeremy HochhalterFairy tales and Lovecraftian Mythos collide in this mash-up anthology. These short stories, crafted by some of today’s finest Mythos authors, merge the maddening unknowns of Lovecraft with the dark morality tales of yesteryear, bringing a shred of light into the horrific corridors that are built from such a melding.

Apotheosis: Stories of Human Survival After The Rise of The Elder Gods, edited by Jason Andrew: Humanity struggled to grow and evolve as a species for thousands of years forever caught in the shadow of a dread threat known only to a devoted few. When the stars are right, the Old Ones will return to claim utter dominion of this world. Lovecraft Mythos stories often climax at the moment of the fateful return of the Elder Gods and the audience is left to ponder what might happen next. This anthology features stories about humanity under the reign of the Elder Gods and ancient terrors.

Tales of Alhazred, by Donald TysonTen new tales from the mad Arab who wrote the NECRONOMICON! Artwork by Frank Walls.

The Idolaters of Cthulhu, edited by H. David Blalock: There are those who chant the eldritch songs, who gather in nameless places to celebrate the return of the great Old Ones. For millennia their tales have not been told. Within these haunted pages you will find their stories of yearning, terror, murder, and a faith that defies the understanding of humanity. Come and look into the minds of the Idolaters of Cthulhu!

The Trials of Obed Marsh, by Matthew Davenport: The Exciting Prequel to Lovecraft’s “Shadow Over Innsmouth”. Four years after the mysterious disappearance of Robert Olmstead, the man who sent the FBI to Innsmouth, his closest friend has discovered new evidence into the reality of what Innsmouth truly was: He has found the Journal of Captain Obed Marsh.

Tesla & Malone: Lightning’s Call, Book One, by Vincent J. LaRosaIt’s summer in New York City. All is quiet and peaceful. Or is it? An ancient evil is about to be unleashed on the unsuspecting island populace. Former Civil War cavalry sergeant Denis Malone struggles to live a normal civilian life but the nightmares persist and gain strength. What do these haunting visions mean? Meanwhile – Nikola Tesla, his eight years long search for the Cult of Five Stars nearly over, has just arrived in the city from overseas. Not a penny to his name, the young man has only his inventions and his wits to combat the ancient evil that is about to be summoned down from the sky. Can he find the Cult Leader in time to stop the ritual? Or will the girl be sacrificed and horrors run free upon the earth, starting with New York City? With unlikely aid in the form of Denis Malone, Tesla is about to find out!

The Atomic Sea, by Jack ConnerA thousand years ago, the sea began to change, and the change spread. Now the boiling, toxic, lightning-wreathed Atomic Sea has encompassed every ocean on the planet, and the creatures that live in it have become mutated and unnatural. The sea’s taint can infect any human who comes in contact with it or with unprocessed seafood, killing them . . . or altering them. No one knows why the sea has become this way or what it portends, only that it’s irrevocably changed the world.

  1. If you like black ops vs. Mythos then I highly recommend the Delta Green short story collections. I picked up the DG book listed above as part of a Kickstarter project, and got 2 books for the price of one.

  2. The ongoing Atomic Sea series is a fun ride through a Mythos-riddled landscape powered by bizarre technology and steampunk know-how. The setting is fresh and unique, while still being applicable to our own world. The characters are well-conceived and the plotting smooth. I highly recommend this series and the author’s others works.
