But in the crumbling state of Florida, a man named Norman takes an unprecedented stand against the Collectors, propelling him on a journey across North America.

Martin is going to Bible Camp for the summer. He's going to learn archery and swimming, and he's going to make new friends. He's pretty excited, but that's probably because nobody told him that this is a horror novel. Eleven-year-old Martin's mother works in the movie business, doing (what else?) special-effects make-up for horror movies. She has a job in Toronto but doesn't have the money to hire somebody to look after Martin, so he volunteers to ship himself off to Bible camp, where someone is systematically killing off the campers in various maniacal ways. The violence is right out of a 1980s-style horror flick, as is the cast of characters: Martin and his fellow campers; Chip and his fellow camp counselors; and affable Father Tony, the camp's leader. Lean and mean and hugely entertaining, with no high-falutin' literary pretenses note to fans of slasher flicks: yes, the villain is exactly who you think it is but with a genuinely shocking conclusion, the book should be a big hit with old-school horror fans.

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."--H. P. LOVECRAFT, "Supernatural Horror in Literature". Howard Phillips Lovecraft forever changed the face of horror, fantasy, and science fiction with a remarkable series of stories as influential as the works of Poe, Tolkien, and Edgar Rice Burroughs. His chilling mythology established a gateway between the known universe and an ancient dimension of otherworldly terror, whose unspeakable denizens and monstrous landscapes--dread Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth, the Plateau of Leng, the Mountains of Madness--have earned him a permanent place in the history of the macabre. In Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos, a pantheon of horror and fantasy's finest authors pay tribute to the master of the macabre with a collection of original stories set in the fearsome Lovecraft tradition: The Call of Cthulhu by H.
