  • This fourth instalment of S T Joshi s acclaimed Black Wings series features seventeen stories that continue to elaborate upon the conceptions, motifs, and imagery of H P Lovecraft, the most influential writer of weird fiction of the past hundred years One of Lovecraft s favourite themes was the tale of archaeological horror, where venturesome explorers unearth hideousThis fourth instalment of S T Joshi s acclaimed Black Wings series features seventeen stories that continue to elaborate upon the conceptions, motifs, and imagery of H P Lovecraft, the most influential writer of weird fiction of the past hundred years One of Lovecraft s favourite themes was the tale of archaeological horror, where venturesome explorers unearth hideous secrets of the ancient past that cast a baleful light on the fragility of our own existence In this volume, a major new novella by the award winning novelist and poet Fred Chappell, Artifact, treats this theme with his customary panache and subtlety, while other writers such as Richard Gavin, Lois H Gresh, Ann K Schwader, and Donald Tyson broach the same theme in their own distinctive and diverse ways.The cosmicism that was at the core of Lovecraft s vision finds vivid realisation in stories by Caitl n R Kiernan, Cody Goodfellow, and Melanie Tem John Pelan and Stephen Mark Rainey have co written a vivid novelette fusing horror and science fiction, while Will Murray s tale of governmental espionage leads to a conclusion that bodes ill for the fate of the human race.Lovecraft was skilled at evoking the terrors inherent in the history and topography of his native New England, and several writers in this volume notably W H Pugmire and Jonathan Thomas do the same Jason V Brock finds Lovecraftian terror in Prague, just as Gary Fry locates it in the British countryside.Lovecraft s patented motif of the forbidden book that reveals secrets too horrible to contemplate is the focus of Darrell Schweitzer s story of what can be found in an out of the way bookstore, while stories by Simon Strantzas and Stephen Woodworth elaborate on the Lovecraftian themes of immortal gods and of dreams that reveal unwelcome truths about ourselves The book s final contribution, by Charles Lovecraft, is nothing less than a recasting of Lovecraft s early tale The Lurking Fear in a cycle of twelve sonnets.Black Wings IV shows that H P Lovecraft continues to inspire some of today s leading writers of weird fiction.

    1. This is the latest entry in an ongoing anthology series of original stories inspired by the work and worlds of weird fiction author H. P. Lovecraft. Renowned Lovecraft scholar and editor S. T. Joshi has thrown together an impressive roster of contributors, including Caitlín R. Kiernan, Simon Strantzas, Fred Chappell, Cody Goodfellow, and the late Melanie Tem. Despite the literary clout of some of these names, however, the overall quality of the stories is quite varied.Please read the rest of my [...]


    2. Overall the book was solid. My biggest gripe, if you will, is that throughout the book there are a number if pesky little typos. That's my biggest gripe.


    3. Review written for and published by Portland Book Review on July 5th:“They’ve already made waking life a dream and the dreamers into a mushy mass-mind where everyone shares the same dream of being the only one who matters.”Sixteen tales with a Lovecraftian focus explore the otherworldly in bizarre and wonderful ways. One of the tales, “Fear Lurks Atop Tempest Mount,” is in fact a series of poems revealing a mysterious narrative. This reviewer found one of the tales, “Trophy,” somew [...]
