The Disciples of Cthulhu
NINE STORIES OF MYTHOS HORROR, SEVEN FROM THE ORIGINAL EDITION AND TWO NEW TO THIS EDITION. WITH ORIGINAL INTRODUCTION BY ROBERT BLOCH.
'"To worship Cthulhu is enough. Indeed, it is all! That, in there... is His temple. To offer up sacrifices while yet thinking of oneself would be blasphemous, and when He comes I shall not be found wanting!" His eyes went wide and he trembled. "You don't know Him, Anderson. He is awful, awesome, a monster, a god! He is sunken now, drowned and dead in deep R'lyeh, but His death is a sleeping death and He will awaken. When the stars are right we chosen ones will answer the Call of Cthulhu, and R'lyeh will rise up again to astound a reeling universe. Why, even the Gorgons were His priestesses in the old world!... [But] you could never believe—not even if I showed you proof of my priesthood, which hides beneath this false head of hair that I'm obliged to wear, the very Mark of Cthulhu."'
- Brian Lumley, The Fairground Horror
The disciples of Cthulhu are a varied lot. In Mythos stories they are obsessive, loners, dangerous, seeking not to convert others so much as to use them. But writers of the stories are also Cthulhu's disciples, and they are the proselytizers, bringing new members to the fold. Published in 1976, the first edition of The Disciples of Cthulhu was the first professional, all-original, Cthulhu Mythos anthology. One of the stories, The Tugging by Ramsey Campbell, was nominated for a Science Fiction Writers of America Nebula Award, perhaps the only Cthulhu Mythos story that has received such recognition. Chaosium is proud to bring this anthology back into print, spreading word of the Mythos to new generations.
