Brian Keene Reviews Cthulhu's Dark Cults

Well the reviews keep coming. Two times Stoker Awarding winning horror author Brian Keene has placed Cthulhu's Dark Cults in his Top 10 read for 2010. He was particularly impressed with John Goodrich's tale:

In this Lovecraft-inspired anthology, editor David Conyers has done a commendable job of compiling a collection of first-rate tales by some lesser-known but certainly capable writers. Indeed, I was so impressed with most of the stories that after finishing the book, I had a list of new authors to Google. All of the tales deal with cults engaged in the worship of Cthulhu and other Lovecraftian deities. The stories run the gamut from literary to pure pulp (and I’m glad for that). While all of the tales are enjoyable, the stand-outs include “The Eternal Chinaman” by John Sunseri, “Perfect Skin” by David Witteveen, “The Devil’s Diamonds” by Cody Goodfellow, and “Captains of Industry” by John Goodrich (indeed, that last one is my favorite short story I’ve read this year). A worthwhile addition to any horror bookshelf.
