pPrior to the first American publication of Brian Lumleys ground-breaking, dead-waking, best-selling Necroscope in 1988the first novel in a long-lived, much-loved seriesthis British author had for twenty years been earning himself something of a reputation writing short stories, novellas, and a series of novels set against H. P. Lovecrafts cosmic Cthulhu Mythos backdrop. A soldier in 1967, serving in Berlin with the Royal Military Police, Lumley jumpstarted his literary career by writing to August Derleth, the then-dean of macabre publishers at his home in Sauk City, Wisconsin, telling of his fascination with the Mythos, and purchasing books by the Old Gentleman of Providence, RI. In addition, he sent a page or two of written work allegedly culled from the various forbidden or black books of the Mythos. Suitably impressed, the master of Arkham House invited Lumley to write something solid in the Mythos as a possible contribution to a new volume he was currently contemplating, to be titledwhat else but?Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos. And as might well be imagined, that set everything in motion./ppYears have passed since then and a good many words of Mythos fiction written, including critically acclaimed and award-nominated work, stories that have appeared in prestigious magazines such as Fantasy & Science Fiction, and hardcover volumes from publishers all over the world from the USA to China and the United Kingdom to Russia./ppStories included in this collection:br /THE CALLER OF THE BLACKbr /HAGGOPIANbr /CEMENT SURROUNDINGSbr /THE HOUSE OF CTHULHUbr /THE NIGHT SEA-MAID WENT DOWNbr /NAME AND NUMBERbr /RECOGNITIONbr /CURSE OF THE GOLDEN GUARDIANSbr /AUNT HESTERbr /THE KISS OF BUGG-SHASHbr /DE MARIGNYS CLOCKbr /MYLAKHRION THE IMMORTALbr /THE SISTER CITYbr /WHAT DARK GOD?br /THE STATEMENT OF HENRY WORTHYbr /DAGONS BELLbr /THE THING FROM THE BLASTED HEATHbr /DYLATH-LEENbr /THE MIRROR OF NITOCRISbr /THE SECOND WISHbr /THE HYMNbr /SYNCHRONICITY OR SOMETHINGbr /THE BLACK RECALLEDbr /THE SORCERERS DREAM/p
