The first review for Cthulhu’s Dark Cults has been published by Innsmouth Free Press.
The reviewer has mixed feelings about the collection – or more accurately, criticism about the level of depth the stories possess in exploring the nature of the Mythos cults. My novella “Requiem for the Burning God” wasn’t singled out one way or another, although the only mention of my story was a positive one:
Many stories left open-ended conditions easily adapted into scenarios for those playing Call of Cthulhu games, although there are few that would leave most readers with a sense of “Wow, I’ve absolutely GOT to play this out….” Top candidates would include the aftermath of Peter A. Worthy’s “Old Ghost”, Shane Jiraiya Cummings’ South American mining thriller “Requiem For the Burning God” and William Jones’ “Covenant of Darkness”.
It’s a good analytical review. I’m now looking forward to the next reviews when they come out.
