Cthulhu Unbound 3 and "The R'lyeh Singularity" Reviews

Cthulhu Unbound 3, and my Brian M. Sammons co-authored novella in the anthology "The R'lyeh Singularity", has been receiving some positive reviews of late and its sales figures on are rocketing up the sales list. Here are excerpts some of them that I thought I might share if you are thinking about purchasing this anthology and are undecided:


Cthulhu Unbound 3 is a collection of four novellas, marrying Lovecraft’s vision to another genre. Beyond the connections to the Cthulhu Mythos, there is no other underlying theme, excepting that each story seems to climax in feces-against-rotating-blades insanity. Each story is penned by great talents in the weird-fiction realm and it shows. - Bruce Priddy, Horror Novel Reviews

These guys form into the "Avengerspendables" and deal out quite a bit of "literary punishment" through the course of the four novellas on display here. - David Anderson,


I devoured “The R’lyeh Singularity” in a single sitting, turned back to the opening page and did it again. This is a big budget Hollywood summer movie in novella form, though far smarter than anything Michael Bay would bring to theaters. Lovecraft’s most famous creation makes an appearance here; as told by Conyers and Sammons, the Great Old One warps reality by Its very presence. How they handle this in the story is brilliant. To say more would ruin it for you. I would love to see this translated to the big screen. - Bruce Priddy, Horror Novel Reviews

Conyers has an elegant grasp on quantum physics, while Sammons knows how to get all the "big military toys" in the sandbox. They both fuse together to create some kind of mad orchestrator that doles out awesomeness by the handfuls. - David Anderson,

The pace is excellent. For those interested in seeing how the American government might handle national security threats of the Cthulhu-kind, I would say this one is worth the price of admission on its own - Historicool,
