Acolytes of Cthulhu Reviews

    From what I gather as I read this book, the authors who have contributed to this volume are all "acolytes of Cthulhu," meaning (as Price notes in his introduction) that they all have in their own way paid tribute to Lovecraft through their writings, either in style or in content. And what a fine collection this is; probably one of the better horror samplers I've ever read. Of course, this is an anthology, but imho, there's only one story in here I'd single out as a "how the hell did this get in here" type thing. Other than that one (which shall remain nameless, although I'll bet if you're along for thrill of getting the willys, you'll know which one it is), the collection here is a mish-mosh of horror that you should definitely read alone and with the lights down low. For the first time, I can't pick a favorite, although "The Earth Brain" and "The Will of Claude Ashur" were 2 that really spooked me. If you are an HPL fan, not necessarily a Mythos fan since most of these stories do not directly address the Mythos, then you will enjoy this book. I wish people wrote like this nowadays -- the stories are gut-level creepy and don't have to depend on gore or slasher-type scenarios to be scary. I am very proud to have this book as a part of my HPL/Fedogan and Bremer collection. Highly recommended, even if you just want to read the stories for their horror benefit! If you're reading it and come across stories related to the Mythos and you aren't familiar with the names, drop everything and go to the source himself: Howard Phillips Lovecraft.contents list:Pierce, Earl -- Doom in the House of DuryeaBrennan, Joseph Payne -- The Seventh IncantationEddy, CM -- Black NoonRimel, Duane -- The Jewels of CharlotteWellman, Manly Wade -- The Letters of Cold FireHasse, Henry -- Horror at VecraTanner, Charles -- Out of the JarHamilton, Edmond -- The Earth-BrainPowers, Elwin G. -- Through the Alien AngleCausey, James -- Legacy in CrystalThompson, C.

    Review for the collection:Overall, Acolytes of Cthulhu, a collection of Lovecraft-inspired short stories edited and collected by Robert M. Price, is a fantastic collection chock full of eerie, unsettling, and downright frightening stories examining the nature of humanity, the relationship between science and the occult, and the insignificant role humans play in the vast, unknowable universe. If you’re a fan of cosmic or gothic horror, this will be a great collection for you, filled with lots of great stories written by notable authors who faithfully utilize the conventions of the genre that we know and love, as well as come up with their own modern storytelling conceits.However, something that I found incredibly disappointing was the following. Not only was there not a single female author included in this collection (nor many female characters of any importance), but also the especially bad stories (Legacy in Crystal, The Final War) were varnished with a thick layer of disgusting misogyny. Be better, Robert M. Price: collect stories that are diverse in voice and representation. I know for a fact that some of the best Lovecraft-inspired horror out there is written by women. So go find their work and include it in your future Lovecraft collections.My reviews of the individual short stories can be found in my reading progress, but my favorite stories in the collection were: From the Pits of Elder Blasphemy, The Letters of Cold Fire, Horror at Vecra, The Earth-Brain, The Will of Claude Ashur, The Crib of Hell, The Cellar Room, The Horror Out of Time, John Lehmann Alone, and Mists of Death.Review for the final story:Neil Gaiman’s “Shoggoth’s Old Peculiar” is about an American tourist exploring the British seaside when he stumbles across an odd fishing village filled with strange and slightly disgruntled people. It’s exactly the kind of fun, whimsical, referential silliness one would expect Gaiman to make of the Cthulu mythos. 4/5 stars.

    Ah, as antologias... nada contra, inclusive tenho amigos que organizam e escrevem para. (Eu também escrevo para e já pensei em organizar, então, quer dizer.)Mas ainda assim: "ah, as antologias". *Suspiro*.Vejam, a intenção é boa: "vamos reunir um panorama de artistas que escreveram ou se interessam por X", mas a realização quase sempre deixa a desejar. De boas intenções é pavimentada a estrada para o inferno, etc. Por que eu continuo lendo antologias? Pelo trabalho arqueológico, pelo desejo de um curador de fato criterioso, porque eu tinha um cupom da Amazon pra gastar... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Isto posto, o nome da antologia engana: Acólitos de Cthulhu nos faz pensar em contos nos quais o Grande Antigo Tentacular favorito da cultura pop aparece. Mas, no fim das contas, é uma coletânea baseada no universo do Lovecraft - ou seja, Cthulhu que é bom, quase não há.

    Do you want terror-inducing stories of the great cosmic entity known as Cthulhu? Do you want to feel fear as you read short tales of the Elder Ones and their coming destruction of our planet? Do you want to further your knowledge of H.P.Lovecraft's seminal horror creation? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then my suggestion is to look somewhere else. "Acolytes of Cthulhu" is quite a disappointment when it comes to adding to the Lovecraft anthologies.I probably shouldn't complain that much, as I got this anthology for a measly sum of 5 bucks (thank you Barnes and Noble for your coupons and book exchange policy), but even then, I can't say it was a good $5 spent. The problem with "Acolytes" is that it suffers from the anthology curse. That is, it promises multiple stories centered around one subject, yet it fails to complete that promise. I get that sometimes it's hard to collect 20-25 short stories on things, but it CAN be done (look at Lockhart's "Book of Cthulhu" anthology to see what I mean). "Acolytes of Cthulhu" is a perfect example of a lofty goal that cannot be reached.Maybe, if the title had been different, I wouldn't feel as duped or as bummed out as I feel after finishing it. "Acolyte" is an assistant or follower of a person, place, or thing, right? And if they are followers of Cthulhu, you would expect the beast to feature prominently throughout the collected stories. Well, like me, you'd be wrong. Of the 28 stories here, only 3 (yes, 3) deal with Cthulhu. That is just about 10% of the 469 pages dedicated to the name plastered all over the cover. Instead, what we get are 25 other shorts about vampires, haunted houses, and demon children. I understand that most of these were influenced and inspired by H.P. Lovecraft (since the guy didn't stick to his mythos for his entire career), but why would an editor or publisher purposely mislead readers into thinking they were going to embark on a lengthy collection of Cthulhu related themes?Now, let's talk about the stories themselves. Maybe if they were good, I could look past the obvious lack of Cthulhu and still give this anthology a solid 3 star rating. Yet, these were also a general disappointment. Granted, most of them weren't especially bad (however Wellman's and Borges's were pretty awful as was "The Final War" by Keller), it's just that the majority of them weren't that good. I get that these are older, and were published many years ago, but that still doesn't change the fact that they were, for the most part, boring. They plodded along, moving slowly and far-too-gothicy, focusing more on melodrama and setting than actual substance. Again, I get these were written for the pulp press of the 30's and 40's, and readers views and abilities have changed, but there is nothing wrong with trying to find more modern and exciting stories to break up the monotony.I can say that there were 2 stories in here that really stood out as original and intriguing, and surprise, surprise, had NOTHING to do with Cthulhu. "The Earth Brain" by Edmond Hamilton was a nice twist on "The Mountains of Madness" and "The Crib of Hell" by Arthur Prendragon was a fun little story about deformed, evil offspring.

    The four stars are for Lovecraftians only, otherwise you may be entertained but wonder what the fuss is about - for non-Lovecraftians this is a three star job, entertaining and amusing and no more.But for Lovecraftians, Robert M. Price has managed to find a rich vein of stories derivative of Lovecraft (or sometimes Derleth who is a very different proposition) ranging from the 1930s through to the 1990s.Five are from the old Weird Tales stable and the stories tend (though only 'tend') to get better as the century proceeds and pulp becomes something closer to 'literature'. There are some duds (the dreadful Dr. David Keller's being most notable in this category) but the overall standard is pretty solid.A couple of 'sports' from the very young S. T. Joshi (almost a tribute to him) and from Neil Gaiman (which actually made me laugh out loud once or twice) add a bit of fun.The two 'high literary' contributions show Borges at his most elliptic and obscure and that Meyrink was capable of writing utter schlock, showing perhaps that Lovecraftian tales should be left to the experts.But once we put all this aside, Price has uncovered a number of writers who wrote little and one wishes had written more, notably Arthur Pendragon and Steffan B. Aletti in the 1960s.Perhaps they simply fell into the lean years between the pulps and the later rediscovery of Lovecraftian 'eldritch horrors' as a rich seam for popular culture and literary studies alike.The five stories by these two writers might be judged pastiches by some but the tone is almost perfect for the tradition, offering us rather fine throw-backs to the best of an earlier era.Of the generous helping of 29 tales, I would say that at least two thirds pass muster as stories and add value to the canon, which is way ahead of most such anthologies. Nearly all have some historical value.Definitely one for collectors of Lovecraftian material and those interested in the history of pulp horror fiction but perhaps not a book that we might expect to appear in the Times Literary Supplement.

    Possibly the best Lovecraftian anthology I have read. Only a few of the stories disappointed. Not all involved mighty Cthulhu, and a few were not overtly connected to the Mythos at all -- yet all were Lovecraftian in spirit.

    This anthology was a collection of stories set in the Cthulhu Mythos, by authors other than Lovecraft. The good news is, a lot of it is very faithful to Lovecraft's general style. The bad news is, see the good news. Long stretches of this were kind of a slog. but there were some bright spots, like the Gaiman story.

    This collection does vary a bit - as other reviewers have noted, not all the stories are truly "Lovecraftian." For instance, the Manley Wade Wellman story is basically a traditional black magic yarn. Still, there are some excellent stories, including Edmond Hamilton's "The Earth-Brain", and Neil Gaiman's very tongue-in-cheek "Shoggoth's Old Peculiar".

    «Если ты проснулся в темной комнатеи не видишь ничего ужасного,и темноте пошарь, и обязательночто-нибудь ужасное нащупаешь».Григорий ОстерШестьсот сорок страниц, три десятка повестей и рассказов, одно экзальтированное предисловие теолога — всё это оказалось неплохим введением в лавкрафтианство. «Культ Ктулху» (точнее, «Аколиты Ктулху», но у наших издателей в голове опилки, непонятные слова их расстраивают) оказался занятным срезом семидесятилетней традиции написания фанфиков о глупых человеках, с завидным упрством тревожащих Вселенское Зло. Оказывается, 90% лавкрафтианских фантазий попадают в две категории: совсем ленивые и не очень.В совсем ленивых непременно фигурирует «Некрономикон». Те, что посмелее, вспомнят «De Vermis Mysteeriis» или даже еретически обходятся без зловещих томов.Ленивые пишут про безумных библиофилов (по иронии, «Под чуждым углом» и «Некро-знание» — самые скучные рассказы сборника, а вот «Последний труд Петра Апонского» пришёлся бы по нраву Умберто Эко). Авторы с выдумкой же вспоминают, что есть другие занятные профессии вроде этнологов («Из бездны древней, нечестивой»).Ленивые с размаху впечатывают в повествование Ктулху или хотя бы Ньярлатхотепа — ведь иначе кто догадается, что мы тут отдаём уважение Лавкрафту? Смелые же помнят: созданий у Говарда Филипповича было много, да и необязательно именовать и классифицировать каждую тварь; неизвестное может быть куда страшнее привычного уже старика Спящего.Ленивые подхватывают нехитрый язык палпа: тьма у них непременно стигийская или киммерийская (ну и что, что это другой писатель), изображения — нечестивые, ужас — хаотический. И ещё что-нибудь сквамозное, непременно сквамозное. Единицы решаются показать авторский голос — собственно, интересный рассказчик появляется лишь в рассказе «Джон Леманн совсем один».Ну и так далее, и так далее. Что до исключений, то их тоже оказалось два вида. «Оловянное кольцо» и «Воля Клода Эшера» попали в сборник по блату: они скорее исследуют творчество Эдгара По, чем Лавкрафта — но кто сказал, что это плохо? «Кольцо» — не слишком удачный эксперимент, который мог бы вырасти в занятную повесть о путешествиях во времени. А вот «Воля» — старательный и безукоризненный пастиш, который неплохо смотрелся бы и в собрании родоначальника жанра.И четыре по-настоящему хороших рассказа. Три из них можно угадать, лишь заглянув в содержание: Майнрик, Борхес и Гейман. Эти очень разные авторы плохого написать не могут. У Майнрика вышел сюрреалистичный рассказ, пробующий на прочность четвёртую стену, Гейман рассказал о буднях аколитов (они тоже бухают в пабах до потери сознания, так-то), Борхес же копнул чуть глубже всех, показав ужасное, не показывая ужасного вовсе. Ну а тёмной лошадкой сборника оказался «Безвременный ужас» Рэндалла Гаррета: он старательно усыпляет читателя стандартным до скрежета зубовного сюжетом, чтобы выдать в финале поистине шьямалановский разворот.В общем, не ждите от этого сборника (и любых других подобных) открытий чудных: фанфики и есть фанфики. Но несколько потускневших бриллиантов в этой пыли отыскать можно.

    My second experience of the world of Cthulhu anthologies, Acolytes of Cthulhu is apparently one of the better known ones on the market. It certainly gives the impression of a high-effort affair, with a wide array of works spanning the 1930s through to 1990s having been ferretted out for re-publication. If Robert M. Price’s introduction is to be believed, some were obscure to the point of being almost completely forgotten.With more than twenty authors across such an expanse of time, this book will necessarily be hit-and-miss as to one’s individual taste. For the most part I found the stories rather by-the-numbers. Oh look, someone’s found a sinister old grimoire. And now they’ve conducted an occult ceremony. And now there’s a monster and/or portal to another dimension. Colour me shocked.Admittedly that’s to be expected in a collection of deliberately derivative works, but I read this kind of stuff in the hope that someone can bring a unique spark of imagination to the Cthulhu Mythos. And while nothing here blew me away, there are stories I appreciated for playing with some cool ideas.The first story, ‘Doom of the House of Duryea’ by Earl Price Jr (1936), briefly and cleverly explores an elaborate version of vampirism. ‘The Final War’ by David H. Keller MD (1949) gives a fleeting and entertaining glimpse of Cthulhu if he/she/it had been a bad-ass shape-shifting interplanetary warlord-wizard-emperor bent on conquering Earth. It’s so preposterous as to be breathtaking.Perhaps my favourite story was the longest and the closest to emulating Lovecraft’s style. C. Hall Thompson’s ‘The Will of Claude Ashur’ (1947) is packed with that same brand of deliciously awful melodramatic prose in its story of an evil man committing thoroughly malevolent and supernatural acts. And of course there’s a beautiful woman embodying all that’s pure and wonderful in the world and who has no agency of her own. Were it not such an ingrained trope I would be offended by it.‘The Earth Brain’ by Edmond Hamilton (1932) tries something a bit more ‘out there’, experimenting with the concept of the earth as a living creature – and a potentially murderous one at that. Two stories by Arthur Pendragon and three from Steffan B. Aletti from the 1960s are among the most competent here, demonstrating that this style was still alive in an era not often associated with it. Aletti leans a little more towards Howard than Lovecraft I think.The world’s most self-promoting supernatural fiction scholar S.T. Joshi makes a rare appearance as an author in ‘The Recurring Doom’ (1980), demonstrating why he’s better suited to writing about this stuff than writing it. Neil Gaiman provides an amusing capstone to the collection with ‘Shoggoth’s Old Peculiar’ (1998), being a sort of humorous tribute to Lovecraft whilst still managing to be a well-executed supernatural tale in its own right.For what it is, Acolytes of Cthulhu is solid and if this is your jam then it’s worthy of your time. Just don’t expect anything in it to beat Lovecraft at his own game.

    [cw: racism]I'm beginning to amass a large collection of Cthulhu and Lovecraft related books (e.g. Black Wings of Cthulhu: Tales of Lovecraftian Horror, Shadows over Innsmouth, The Madness of Cthulhu Anthology and more).What I loved about this anthology is how they link together some of the Lovecraft mythos. Unfortunately, I don't think that they really expanded on previous stories as much as The Madness of Cthulhu Anthology did, which I really liked. They were unique horror stories though, and I love them for their macabre nature. Some were pretty hard to get through because they were written in a strange way, or were simply not as interesting to me. But there were some really interesting ones in there. Definitely worth a look if you're a Lovecraft/Cthulhu fan.They did use some racist terminology and have some racism in them, much like Lovecraft's original stories. I was sorely disappointed by this. I was also disappointed that no one thought to do a different spin and maybe have a main character who wasn't a (presumably as it's not stated otherwise) cis white man who was rich and 'educated' (although there was one that I recall where he wasn't as 'educated'). I shan't hold my breath for such a story, but I don't think I'll ever kill the little spark of hope that resides within my heart.

    I knew what I was getting into when I started this so I knew that most of the twenty-odd stories in this collection were pastiche. I don't mind a good Lovecraft pastiche but many of the stories in this book remind me why pastiche is generally a pejorative term. What I have discovered over the years is that the closer one tries to imitate the less genuine and compelling the story is. Many of the stories here just try way too hard. When the writer takes the source and then plays with it and makes it his own the results are far more enjoyable. With that in mind, there are some real gems in this collection. 'The Horror at Vecra' is a solid story in the vein of 'Dunwich Horror' while 'The Dunstable Horror' not only recalls the HPL story but brings I'm some clear influences from Algernon Blackwood, especially in the ending. Stories like 'Mythos' by John Glasby, 'John Lehman Alone' by David Kaufman 'Necrotic Knowledge' by Dirk Mosig and 'There are More Things' by Jorge Luis Borges take the collection out of pure pastiche and present more original takes on Lovecraft's style. The real surprise here was a story by S.T. Joshi 'The Recurring Doom'. Joshi takes us on an HPL style investigation that quickly turns into a Robert E Howard pulp adventure romp. To be fair I enjoyed most of the collection and while there were more than a couple groan worthy moments, and one face-palm of an ending, I would recommend this to HPL aficionados.

    Mixed bag of short stories. Some were very good others not so much. I read several other books will plowing through this one as some of the stories were quite boring.My favorites (all 5 star):Doom of the House of Duryea, by Earl Pierce, Jr.Different take on vampiresThe Crib of Hell, by Arthur PendragonAn otherwordly spawn - probably influenced by the Dunwich HorrorNight Bus, by Donald R. BurlesonCreepy dude picked up by an intercity busThe Mists of Death, by Richard F. Searight and Franklin SearightMy personal favorite of the whole book. If you come across a rock slab covered with strange symbols, it's best not to move it.Shoggoth's Old Peculiar, by Neil GaimanI've read this one in several other collections before. Always good. American backpacker stumbles into an English version of Innsmouth.

    2019-05-11 03:53

    I loved this book! My favorite story was the Will of Claude Asher - the last WORD made me scream!!I also really liked:The Letters of Cold Fire - super suspenseful, reminds me of David Bowie's song Prettiest StarShoggoth’s Old Peculiar - probably the funniest story, by the guy who wrote Coraline, about the British coastlineJohn Lehmann Alone - it used really simple language but had a strong voice, I really liked the setting of the farm and how it was usedThe Horror Out of Time - the exploration of a "formation" in the middle of the ocean which turns out to be a satanic altarDoom of the House of Duryea - vampires, what a twist!The Dunstable Horror - how an archeologist witnesses an ancient, tribal curse that haunts a bloodline

    I pray at the feet of the Elder Gods. Actually, I don't but I do adore the Cthulhu mythos since discovering the books of HP Lovecraft as a hormone ridden spotty teenager. Since those days, lost in the mists of time, I have continued to sporadically read others in this canon, and re-read Lovecraft. I still to this day love cthulhu books. Then we come to this collection. There are some absolutely brilliant shorts within this and there are others which seem to be mere padding, and others which are just execrable. Alas, the padding and the poo outweigh the superb hence the 2 stars.

  • Owen
    2019-05-22 07:59

    There are a few good ones in here, but a higher-than-average number of clunkers, in my opinion.I think it's possible to do a good short story with Lovecraftian elements, or in a Lovecraftian universe, but Lovecraft's style was a slow build, and while lots of writers write in his world very few of them attempt a similar style. It's as if you had a tribute album to a jazz great, and every song on the tribute album was rock or pop or rap.

  • Alan

    Overall I enjoyed this collection, but it was definitely a mixed bag. A couple stories I just had to give up on and move along, which isn't something I like doing but c'est la vie. If you're a fan of Lovecraft, as I am, you'll find plenty to enjoy here. I retain hope that upon a second eventual reading I may revise my opinion for the better.

    I've read a few Cthulhu anthologies and this was OK, about average (3/5). The collection spans the '30's through to the '90's with a different slant with each one.The final story is my favourite one, easily a 5/5, a Neil Gaiman comedic take the Lovecraftian genre.

    A really diverse range of Mythos inspired stories including some real gems. The Gaiman story at the end might not stylistically fit the book, but it was a brilliant inclusion nonetheless.
