    1. Future Lovecraft is a collection of numerous (38 to be exact) various authors' work based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft.I think this book is quite the challenge to successfully and accurately rate. For starters, the very premise of book reviews on , I question. There is a difference between one's likes, biases, and opinions and actually critiquing a book. A true (book) critic is looking for certain criteria to be met. Although there is always a degree of subjective opinion in any true critique [...]


    2. Edited by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and Paula R. StilesThe Cthulhu Mythos gets flung far ahead in space and in time, and you’ll definitely get your money’s worth from this vast collection of stories that explore Lovecraftian monsters invading humanity’s future, as well as aliens, other worlds and very trippy dimensions. Exploring both inner and outer space, it’s likely that more than one story that will stay with you. There are more than a couple involving insane astronauts and doomed spacesh [...]


    3. Lovecrafty stuff in scifi contexts. That means different things for different stories. The "lovecraft" part of this book stands out differently depending on the story, including such elements as: the verbose writing style, the supernatural monsters, gothic or macabre elements, even a couple poems/Dunsanian fantasy influenced bits as well. The "future" depends on the story, but a lot of them are in space. Rarely however are the "Gods" reduced to some scientifically comprehensible beings. Their in [...]


    4. "Future Lovecraft" was definitely an interesting and worthwhile read. While the overall rating is at 4 stars, there were several stories which I would emphatically give 5 stars to, such as "Harmony Amid The Stars" by Ada Hoffmann, "This Son Is Not For You" by A.D. Cahill, and "The Labyrinth of Sleep" by Orrin Grey. The editors made some fantastic selections, ranging from die-hard Lovecraft tributes to imaginative explorations of the future and our psyche. There were a few short-stories and poems [...]


    5. This book is a great example of what's possible for Indie publishers. The book looks great, was pretty clean, and the stories were solid. I can definitely see what it's been picked up for larger distribution.I had just a couple personal sticky points when it came to this anthology. From the cover, I was expecting more hard sci fi/mythos stories, and there was a lot more soft SF/Fantasy than I usually like with my tentacles. Obviously that's a very subjsctive statement; your mileage will vary.Sec [...]


    6. I debated over the 2/3 stars and settled with 3 because I suspect my biases concerning the theme played a role in how I felt reading this collection. I really enjoy the anthologies that Innsmouth Free Press puts together. I discovered that I'd overlooked this one somewhere along the way. I would blame at least one missing star from this rating on my generally picky disposition when it comes to this stuff. I have a low tolerance for two types of Mythos fiction--the Dunsanian sort (think Dreamland [...]


    7. An anthology of Lovecraft-inspired SF that doesn't feel much like Lovecraft.There's a fair amount of stories and poetry here, and some of them aren't bad, but none of them really grabbed me. I think it's because the writers don't seem to get what makes a good Lovecraft story, or if they do, they aren't given the length to do it right.Lovecraft starts out slow and normal, and lets the horrors mount. Most of the stories here don't have enough length to do so, and without that slow build up its har [...]


    8. I didn't like these stories much. And I think it's because the authors simply took Lovecraftian names and plugged them in to sci-fi stories. Now, there's nothing inherently wrong with that in theory, but the reason I read Lovecraft is for the STYLE of writing. This book featured pretty standard-issue sci-fi stories featuring Cthulu; they weren't stories about Cthulu set in the future, if you see my meaning. And I also read Lovecraft because it's primarily horror with some sci-fi thrown in. These [...]


    9. I picked this up solely due to the title - the idea of Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos in futuristic environments seemed like a can't miss idea. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a can't hit. That's not to say the stories are bad (and I don't consider myself a fair judge of the poetry), but none are stellar. Only one, The Labyrinth of Sleep (a mashup of Cthulhu and Inception) sparked at all, and while I've got fragments of some of the other stories still in mind, my overall impression of the book is [...]


    10. This book is terrible!This book is terribly edited; spelling, punctuation and typesetting issues abound. Even the pagination is screwed up. Worse yet, most of the stories don't even have a passing resemblance to Lovecraft. The only really good one was Nick Mamatas, but that was expected after 'The Damned Highway".


    11. I just couldn't finish this book. I read through a good portion of it but I just found the majority of entries to be terribly boring or just plain uninteresting. I did enjoy a couple of the stories which is why I didn't rate the book a one star. Overall I was very disappointed. Perhaps some day I will try to finish but honestly I don't think I will.


    12. I found a large number of the first few stories either uninteresting or poorly done, lacking that Lovecraftian feel despite obviously trying for it. The quality seemed to improve about half-way through, with the stories thereafter displaying a much better crafting as well as capturing more effectively the namesake feeling. I am afraid I was not a fan of any of the poetry, that I recall.


    13. What is the future of Lovecraft? Although they don’t express the intention explicitly, the editors of Future Lovecraft have not only produced a quality collection of Lovecraft-related science fiction, but have done a fantastic job of selecting stories that raise that very question. Interest in Lovecraft is flourishing, and may now be greater than at any prior point in history. The iconic elements of the Mythos have moved beyond cult status into popular awareness, becoming cultural touchstones [...]


    14. When I told my brother about this book, his initial response (he was barely listening to me) was a derisive snort. I immediately vowed to read this book, just to show him that he shouldn't be so judgmental (he hadn't even seen the cover after all). So it is with a sigh that I pass judgment on this book after having read it, every page, from cover to cover. Including all the poetry. Every line of every poem.I had only ever heard of one of these authors and had not read a single piece by any of th [...]


    15. One of the great elements of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos (an unofficial ‘shared world’ setting where uncaring alien gods drive humanity mad merely at us understanding their nature, gods who will eventually destroy us and not even noticed when they do so because we are that insignificant) is that it is a setting that translates so well across so many genres. In the last decade we’ve seen Hard-Boilded Noir Cthulhu, Wild West Cthulhu, Historical Cthulhu, Romance Cthulhu and many others. [...]


    16. Science Fiction and Lovecraft, what more could one want?I follow Silvia's blog and tweets. She does good work, and produces pretty good material. I saw her plea for honest reviews about this book and decided to purchase it and give it a go. She mentioned this was the highest pirated book out of all of the ones released by her, but also one of the lowest rated. I think I know why now.Like many, I picked this up because it was Lovecraftian themed. Anything with Lovecraft in the title will draw the [...]


    17. The happiest reader of this book is going to be a sci-fi fan as well as a Lovecraft fan, and I'd go so far as to say that being sci-fi fan is more important to a person's enjoyment than being a Lovecraft fan. Fortunately for me, I'm both, and I really loved this book! The stories are mostly sci-fi takes on the Cthulhu mythos, not necessarily Lovecraftian stories shot into the future, if that distinction makes sense. There's a thread of humor throughout several of the stories that is definitely n [...]


    18. As anthologies go, this collection of Lovecraft-inspired stories set in the future is a particularly good one. Even the weaker stories are interesting. And the best stories are wonderful. The standout stories combine fully-fledged future worlds, interesting characters, and a Lovecraftian twist. Rather than give too many spoilers about the individual stories, I will simply give you a taste of the worlds of my favourite stories.Orrin Grey's The Labyrinth of Sleep alone is worth the price of admiss [...]


    19. Once again I've been drawn into a book by my love of anthologies, all the gems hiding between the strata. This is a fun collection of Lovecraftian fiction, and poetry. Lovecraft himself wrote poetry in the same vein as his fiction, and this is one of the few collections that makes a point of including poetry as more than one or two selections to begin or end the collection. This collection includes a number of poems interspersed between the story selections.Much like its companion volume, Histor [...]


    20. Like any anthology of stories, everyone finds stories that are hits, and stories that are misses. For me, there were several good hits, but on the whole I felt something lacking. Maybe it was the sci-fi settings, which are a bit of a stray from the usual Lovecraft feel (and not a genre I read much of), or maybe it was that some of the stories seemed to try a little too hard to be Lovecraftian. I'm a huge Lovecraft fan though, so I'll take whatever I can, and there really are some great, chilling [...]


    21. Enjoyed my journey into this anthology of stories and poems inspired by H.P. Lovecraft. Here, the stars drive a spaceship crew mad. A very weird version of Venice appears here. Space travel comes through a hungry, malicious comet. Swim in the drug-induced haze of a jellyfish. A Martian gulag. Fear the future, indeed!I like the story "Tri-TV", about the new TV of the galaxy, beyond 3-D. Scary stuff from around the Solar System and beyond. Then comes the next generation of communication--printed p [...]


    22. I have enjoyed the other anthologies from the Innsmouth Free Press which I've read, so my "meh" reaction to this one was a surprise. I suspect it was my apathy to the science fiction genre in general (other than some Star Trek), and this collection seemed to lean more towards classic sci-fi than Lovecraftian horror.


    23. Some intriguing talesFor a fan of the genres of sci-fi and Lovecraftian horror some stories will be very enjoyable. Others may make little sense or seem out of place in this collection. Those unfamiliar with the Lovecraft mythos should start with his original works as the references made in these tales will not be understood.


    24. I think I would have enjoyed this one a whole lot more if I had read any of Lovecraft's works. As it stood, without knowing any Lovecraft, there were definitely a few stories that I truly enjoyed. On a whole, though, I found it enormously confusing and hard to follow. I'm also not a huge fan of anthologies, but I received this one as a present - so of course, I had to read it.


    25. Disappointing. Not one story or poem in this collection really grabbed me. A few were OK or had interesting premises, but nothing that I really enjoyed. I was really expecting more from this even though I wasn't familiar with any of the authors. Also, be aware that the stories are all very short - 38 stories and poems in a 280 page book.


    26. FINALLY FINISHED!!! Lesson learned: I need to just stay away from Lovecraftian themed books. I tried. I gave it a shot. I stuck with it. I got no enjoyment from this book. I just can't handle the bleakness.


    27. This collection is a mix of poetry and short stories; I preferred the stories. Some of my favorites include: In the Hall of the Yellow King, Tri-TV, People Are Reading What You Are Writing, Harmony Amid the Stars, Venice Burning, and The Labyrinth of Sleep.




    28. I impulse-bought this from the local comic store and liked it a lot more than I thought I would, in no small part because I have a huge soft spot for Lovecraftian sci-fi.
