Robert M. Price, ed.: Crypt of Cthulhu 101, cover art by Erika Henderson, $4.50
Special issue features Bob Price’s restoration of the first version of Lovecraft’s “The Whisperer in Darkness”. Those who read Steven Mariconda’s major essay in Lovecraft Studies several years’ back will remember that this tale went through numerous revisions by Lovecraft before he was fully satisfied with the finished work. Price has painstakingly restored the story to its earliest version which differs significantly from the one we’ve all come to know and love and includes a new introduction by him.
