Letters to Lovecraft: a review

letterstolovecraftcoverAnd here’s the first review of the Letters to Lovecraft anthology edited by Jesse Bullington and published by Stone Skin Press.

I have a story in it called “Only the Dead and the Moonstruck”, and there are also excellent tales by Jeffrey Ford, Gemma Files, Molly Tanzer, Paul Tremblay, Stephen Graham Jones, and other luminaries.

Only the Dead and the Moonstruck by Angela Slatter addresses the following quote:
Children will always be afraid of the dark, and men with minds sensitive to hereditary impulse will always tremble at the thought of the hidden and fathomless worlds of strange life which may pulsate in the gulfs beyond the stars, or press hideously upon our own globe in unholy dimensions which only the dead and the moonstruck can glimpse.

With inspiration from that quote she created a story with the idea that children are afraid of the dark and are more sensitive to those hidden and fathomless worlds, but that it is a good thing sometimes as they’re more perceptive to the danger that adults might try and explain away.

The rest of the review is here.
