Ancestors - we all have them. Family lines that extend deep into the past and, sometimes, into the future.

The works of HP Lovecraft are full of references to twisted family trees, evil ancestors, and degenerate descendants. Inheritance and legacy, rebirth and decay.

This anthology explores both prequels and sequels to Lovecraftian tales. Seventeen stories that tell of the descendants of Randolph Carter and of the aftermath of the fateful 1928 Innsmouth raid. You will discover the dark history of the de la Poers, read of the early days of the artist Pickman, and learn the secrets of Erich Zann.

From downtown Arkham to distant Venus, from the dawn of time to the far flung future; this unique collection, by authors old and new, seeks to expand and explore the rich Mythos legacy left to us by the Father of the Weird Tale.

Amazon review "What a great and diverse collection of Lovecraft-inspired stories. Each one has its own style and explores the time before or after the original stories. Very professionally produced with some lovely pen and ink illustrations and eye catching cover."
