Love and sex have been an integral part of the Cthulhu Mythos since its inception, and even before. In the vast majority of cases, however, they remain largely in the background, even though they often are a vital plot device, if only by implication. And in those few cases where love or sex is prominently displayed, its purpose is largely to titillate rather than advance the plot. In this anthology are stories that explore various aspects of the relationship between love and sex and the Mythos in a more intimate and open fashion. Their purpose is to show how these ideas, regardless of whether they are used explicitly or implicitly, can be used to present a new spin on classical Mythos story ideas. Warning: these stories deal frankly with sex and sexual relationships. As such they are meant for mature readers. Parental discretion is advised. With stories by James Ambuehl, EP Berglund, Ramsey Campbell, Pierre Comtois, Walter C. DeBill, Jr., Charles Garofalo, CJ Henderson, Randall Larson, HP Lovecraft, Michael Minnis, Robert M. Price, Stephen Mark Rainey, Stanley C. Sargent, Ann K. Schwader, Ron Shiflet, Peter A. Worthy, and more. Selected and formatted by Kevin L. O'Brien, with an introduced by Robert M. Price and artwork by Susan McAdam.
