Lairs of the Hidden Gods, Volume 1

Night Voices, Night Journeys


Edited by ASAMATSU Ken
Introduced by Robert M. PRICE

This massive collection of original stories and articles inspired by the ‘Cthulhu Mythos’ created by H.P. Lovecraft was published in Japan in 2002 as a two-volume set under the name Hishinkai. The list of contributing authors is a who’s-who of Japanese horror fiction, featuring some of the finest writers in Japan today.

In cooperation with Tokyo Sogensha, the Japanese publishers, and the anthology editor, Asamatsu Ken, we are proud to present these dark visions of the Mythos as interpreted by Japanese authors. You will find some stories that return like old friends, carrying on the Lovecraft tradition, while others will shock you with totally new and unexpected vistas of horror. Each story is accompanied by a thought-provoking introduction by Robert M. PRICE, the recognized master of the Mythos.

The cover is by YAMADA Akihiro, who has handled many of the covers for the Japanese-language editions of Lovecraft and other Mythos works, and has established a name for himself in the States as well.
