Acolytes Of Cthulhu!
Acolytes of Cthulhu edited by Robert Price is just the kind of Lovecraft anthology I like, with rich vivid stories from across a large span of time. There are stories here by authors contemporary with Lovecraft himself as well as sundry tales by those inspired by him, and even some which merely have a sympathetic tone. Titan Books has offered this impressive collection up for a very nice price, though I will have to say I rather prefer the original Gahan Wilson cover sported on the hardcover from earlier in this century.
And just for the sake of being thorough the writers in this tasty volume include Hugh B. Cave, Manley Wade Wellman, Edmond Hamilton, Jorge Luis Borges, Gustav Meyrink, S.T. Joshi, Neil Gaiman, and many more.
