Respected horror anthologist Stephen Jones edits this collection of twelve stories by some of the worlds most prominent Lovecraftian authors, including H.P Lovecraft himself, Ramsey Campbell, Kim Newman, Michael Marshall Smith, John Glasby, Paul McAuley, Steve Rasnic Tem, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Brian Lumley, Basil Copper, Hugh B. Cave, and Richard Lupoff.

"I found that all eleven stories were of a high quality and filled in gaps of the mythos or expanded them in ways that even Lovecraft may not have imagined, with stories being set in London, the Californian desert and - slightly more obvious - the coast of Cornwall. Innsmouth itself is home to The Deep Ones, beings who are neither man or fish, worshippers of the god Dagon and most of these stories have some affinity with the sea, which makes for some very interesting stories when some of these authors veer off from this angle."
