Last year, Night Shade Books unleashed The Book of Cthulhu onto an unsuspecting world. Critically acclaimed as the ultimate Cthulhu anthology” and a must read’ for fans of Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos,” The Book of Cthulhu went where no collection of mythos tales had gone before: to the very edge of madness and beyond.
For nearly a century, H. P. Lovecraft’s tales of malevolent Great Old Ones existing beyond the dimensions of this world, beyond the borders of sanity, have captured and held the imaginations of writers and aficionados of the dark, the macabre, the fantastic, and the horrible. Now, because you demanded more, anthologist Ross E. Lockhart has risked all to dive back into the Cthulhu canon, combing through mind-shattering manuscripts and moldering tomes to bring you The Book of Cthulhu 2, with even more tales of tentacles, terror, and madness.
Featuring monstrous stories by many of weird fiction’s brightest lights, The Book of Cthulhu 2 brings you even more tales inspired by H. P. Lovecraft’s greatest creation: The Cthulhu mythos. This year, the stars are rightI! I! Cthulhu Fhtagn!
Master of pulp horror H.P. Lovecraft’s enduring legacy is celebrated with an anthology of short fiction inspired by his writings and ideas. Teresa DeBerry and Fleet Cooper share performances ranging from awed to eerie as they vocally create the cosmic horror, the indifference of the universe to individual suffering, and the machinations of The Great Old Ones that are the hallmarks of Lovecraftian tales. Editor Lockhart combines previously published works with some written originally for this volume. Authors in this volume whose imagination Lovecraft inspired include Neil Gaiman, Michael Chabon, Fritz Leiber, and Caitlin Kiernan.

Annoying narrators, decent stories
No, some of the narration is just horrible. Especially the female voice.
Theres quite a few stories some good some bad, quite a few gems but the Neil Gaiman one definitely isn't it.
Cthulu, because he's a giant serving of octo-squid sushi.
