This second instalment of S T Joshi’s critically acclaimed Black Wings series contains eighteen stories by leading contemporary writers all drawing upon themes images and ideas from the life and work of H P Lovecraft Caitlín R Kiernan has written a poetic reinterpretation of “The Hound” while Nicholas Royle plays a fascinating riff on the existential horror of “The Outsider” Three separate tales by Jason C Eckhardt Brian I could only give it three stars Too many weak stories to offset the good and mediocre It becomes difficult for authors once confined to a sub genre to really excel There are just too many Cthulhu books out now it's almost like zombie fare there just cannot be that many good stories in a sub genre like this I'll stick to Laird barron and Caitlin Kiernan My favorite was actually the Jason Brock story
