Cthulhu’s Daughters: Stories of Lovecraftian Horror
Edited by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and Paula R. Stiles

Women writers from around the world delve into Lovecraftian depths, penning and illustrating a variety of weird horrors. Pale and secretive Lavinia wanders through the woods, Asenath is a precocious teenager with an attitude, the ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Nitocris has found a new body in distant America; and there are words to heed from our beloved mother, Shub-Niggurath? Defiant, destructive, terrifying, and harrowing, Cthulhu’s daughters are monsters and mothers, heroes and devourers. Observe them in all their glory. Iä! Iä!

“The stories have diverse characters in diverse situations, but they share that common Lovecraftian atmosphere of dread and wrongness.” – Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

“Fans of horror, particularly those Lovecraft afficianados, will respond to [this anthology's) deliciously existential darkness” – SQ Mag

“A fantastic read from start to finish” – Mad Scientist Journal
