Cthulhu 2000: A Lovecraftian Anthology was edited by Jim Turner. As in his earlier collection, Turner criticizes the "latter-day Mythos pastiche" as simply "a banal modern horror story, preceded by the inevitable Necronomicon epigraph and indiscriminately interspersed with sesquipedalian deities, ichor-oozing tentacles, sundry eldritch abominations, and then the whole sorry mess rounded off with a cachinnating chorus of ""Iä! Iä!"-chanting frogs." He declares that "the works collected in the present volume are not great Lovecraft stories; they rather are great stories in some way inspired by Lovecraft."
Book is solid and clean; black binding cloth is clean and shiny; boards are unbumped and corners sharp; gilt lettering on spine is bright; pages are clean and bright.
Dust jacket front is clean, bright, unblemished and unchipped; flaps are clean and bright with original price unclipped; rear cover is clean and bright.
This is a fine copy of the book in a fine dust jacket.CONTENTS
