H.P. Lovecraft, the American master of horror, understood with horrible clarity that all things must die. After summer is winter, and life inevitably gives way to frozen sterility. In our modern world, we live cushioned existences, and congratulate ourselves on our supposed escape from the old dangers. We think ourselves caught out of nature's reach by our technological wizardry. Safely cocooned. This foolishness blinds us to the truth that our elder forebears could not avoid. Engulfed by the rhythms of the world, they understood... Autumn means death.
There are far worse fates than mere death, of course. As blight spreads, the leaves wither and fall - as do the most important foundations of life. There is nothing more horrible than watching the sources of meaning in your world unravel before you. But these things we cherish are just pretty lies. In autumn's cold grasp, the bright petals of our reality shrivel and die. Beneath them, there is nothing but the insanity of the howling void. Faced with inevitable, agonizing corruption, death is a gentle blessing.
The stories collected in Autumn Cthulhu reflect the darkest, most ancient truths of the season. Inside, you'll find nineteen beautiful, terrifying glimpses of decay and loss inspired by Lovecraft's work. Be sure that you want the burden of understanding before venturing further, though. The dissolving strands of mind, of love, of legacy within leave no room for merciful doubt.
The true meaning of life is that there is no meaning.
"From Nadia Bulkin's sharp, politically savvy creeper to John Langan's stunning epic novella, Mike Davis's anthology is a compelling, eclectic collection of stories from some of today's best and brightest. Autumn Cthulhu does more than find its place within the Lovecraftian/weird fiction universe, it expands it."
-- Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Disappearance at Devil's Rock
(NOTE: The print edition of Autumn Cthulhu contains four story illustrations that were used for promotional purposes. You'll find them near the end of the book.)

Und wenn wir schon vom Besonderen sprechen: das einzige Gedicht in dieser Sammlung, "Lavinia in Autumn" (Ann K. Schwader) erinnet doch sehr an den jungen, verstörten Justin Geoffrey..oder?
Wie auch immer..die Sammlung ist für alle Horror-Ästheten zu empfehlen, die etwas mehr von diesem Genre erwarten als nur Torture-Porns!
Do sobrenatural na floresta, até o estudante bizarro, situações e cenas cotidianas se tornam assustadoras!!!
Recomendo aos fãs do gênero horror cósmico!
