Here gathered in one place are many of the most celebrated and moving hymns of the Great Old Ones, certain to summon winged horrors down from the sky, or nameless things from out of the Earth's depths. These are the authentic liturgies celebrated at Dagon Hall in Innsmouth, Massachusetts. Also suitable for picnics and parties. Brother Darrell Schweitzer has provided hymns for Cthulhu Prayer Breakfasts at the Necronomicon convention for some years, where he has also conducted Lovecraft tours in the College Hill area of Providence. While he has shambed among us for less than three quarters of a century, and therefore has not yet begun the "change" characteristic of Dagon's hierophants, he nevertheless, as the Rev. J. Apocalypse Gibber, Jr. notes in the introduction, has "the look." He co-edited "Weird Tales" magazine for many years ans is the author of numerous fantasy and horror stories. "Inspirational. My mother used to sing me to sleep with these. Sometimes my father did too." -- Wilbur Whateley "I will always support faith-based initiatives of this sort." -- George W. Bush "I would sing along if I could carry a tune in a bucket. Unfortunately, I don't have a bucket." -- Lee Weinstein "Far out! I can dig it!" -- Franz Kafka "Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places. For them are the catacombs of Ptolemais, and the carven mausolea of the nightmare countries. They climb to the moonlit towers of ruined Rhine castles, and falter down black cobwebbed steps beneath the scattered stones of forgotten cities in Asia. But actually, they need look no farther than this book." -- H.P. Lovecraft

Darrell Schweitzer's third collection of essays and reviews, a successor to the well-received "Windows of the Imagination" and "The Fantastic Horizon," is a balanced mixture of scholarship and entertainment, ranging over the entire spectrum of imaginative literature, from the oldest novel in the world (1st century B.C.) to classic (and not-so-classic) pulp fiction, to childhood reading, to examinations of the works of such masters as H.P. Lovecraft, M.R. James, Robert Bloch, Stanley Weinbaum, John W. Campbell, and Thomas M. Disch. In between we encounter such surprising topics as a proposal for an H.P. Lovecraft biopic ("The Whole Wide Lovecraft"), the eccentricities of William Beckford (the author of Vathek), and even a report from Blobfest, an annual street fair devoted to the famous 1958 cult film, at which Schweitzer, as a member of the press, was allowed to touch the original Blob. Many of these pieces have been published in the prestigious "The New York Review of Science Fiction." "Schweitzer writes in an informative style that’s knowledgeable, witty, and high accessible. This is the finest kind of criticism -- it makes you want to read more, both of the critic's own prose and that of the writers he’s discussing. Highly recommended!" -- Robert Reginald. Darrell Schweitzer is a novelist, short-story, writer and critic, a former editor of the legendary "Weird Tales" magazine, and a four-time World Fantasy Award finalist and one-time winner. His previous book of essays, "The Fantastic Horizon," was a finalist for the Mythopoeic Award.
