    Knock, knock!

    Who’s there?


    Cthul who?

    Exactly! I’ve come to tickle your funnybone.

    Oh, and also to eat your soul.

    In 1928, Weird Tales debuted “The Call of Cthulhu” by H.P. Lovecraft, and the Cthulhu Mythos was born.

    In the 90 years since, dozens of writers have dared play within HPL’s mind-blowing creation–but never with such terrifyingly funny results. Now top authors lampoon, parody, and subvert Lovecraft’s Mythos.

    See Cthulhu cut short his nap at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean to invade North Korea!

    Watch the Unspeakable Eater of Souls solve crimes on the pulpy streets of Innsmouth! And speaking of largish Elder Gods, listen to a plastic Elvis doll dispense folksy advice straight from the heart of the Emperor of Dread!

    Again Ol’ Tentacle-Face is confronted by frail humans who dare defy the Incarnation of Ultimate Evil–but this time not by brave monster hunters and terrified villagers, but by fan fiction writers, clueless college students, and corporate lawyers (okay, we realize it’s hard to know who to root for in that confrontation).

    Twenty-three mirthful manifestations within the Cthulhu Mythos from best-selling and award-winning authors Neil Gaiman, Mike Resnick, Esther Friesner, Ken Liu, Jody Lynn Nye, Laura Resnick, Nick Mamatas, and many more!

    Guaranteed to leave you howling. Because if you look at it just right, there’s nothing funnier than a soul writhing in cosmic horror before a tentacled maw of malevolence.
