Cthulhu Tales – Boom Studios

Who writes the best Cthulhu tales? Lovecraft does, or did. It seems people are still jumping on the bandwagon a century later. Why not just write your own horror and be brave enough to let it stand on its own. It takes more than a few tentacles and New England place names to conjure up the mythos. There are some nice ideas and neat touches but nothing worthy of the master himself. Maybe we are all a bit too postmodern to be scared by the things that scared Lovecraft’s generation. Creeping dread just isn’t in our vocabulary it seems. Not a thumbs down but disappointing. Maybe volume two will be better.
