Whispers from the Abyss 2 is a collection of 25 tales inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. I donated for the Kickstarter that created this anthology. It was well worth it.Much like the original Whispers from the Abyss, Whispers From the Abyss 2 is a collection of tales designed to be wolfed down in one sitting.Like all anthologies, the quality of the tales vary. Quality-wise, I felt like this one was a step behind the original. However, the content was worth the price, maybe even a wider ran [...]
In this collection we have “We are not These Bodies, Strung Between the Stars” by A. C. Wise. If you enjoyed Venice is Burning, which ran at PseudoPod, you’re in for a real treat. Her story “Chasing Sunset” in the first Whispers collection is also stunning. Orrin Grey, a favorite at PseudoPod with The Worm that Gnaws and with Night’s Foul Bird, appears here with the Labyrinth of Sleep. Chad Fifer of the H P Lovecraft Literary Podcast returns to Whispers again with The Baby Downstairs [...]
This anthology solidly delivers an array of Lovecraft inspired tales. Accordingly, horror and the supernatural permeate the collection with heavy doses of absurdist bents. While the horrific and unfathomable comprise the lion's share, there is humor and heartfelt represented, too.Most tales share a fresh perspective rising above Lovecraft fan fiction. The best of the bunch carve their own path through the mythos to great effect. I've separately reviewed and rated each of the collection's compone [...]
From the introduction on Whispers From The Abyss 2 ranges from brilliant to merely solid. I thought the stories from Sarah Hans, Konstantine Paradias, Kevin Wetmore, John Palisano, and Cody Goodfellow were all stand outs. The Goodfellow story in particular… I read that after a particularly crappy week and it turned my terrible mood around.
Unnerving Magazine ReviewThe great thing about Lovecraft inspired works and Lovecraft fan fiction is that it isn’t by Lovecraft. Authors taking these long dropped reins do so focussing on the finer qualities of a man with a great imagination, a good sense of how to fabricate dread and a whole wack load of downside.Taking the good bits and leaving behind the rest, this collection rides waves originally made about a century ago. Tentacle tickling, fleshy volume page-flipping and a sense of perma [...]
I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of short stories that have been inspired by H.P. Lovecraft. Scary, humorous and strange, this collection runs the gamut of storytelling. I especially thought the funny stories incredibly clever and very enjoyable. I'm anxious to read the first volume now as well as looking forward to purchasing a physical copy of this book.
Whispers from the Abyss: Volume One is a wonderful anthology of dark fiction/horror based in the shared literary world of HP Lovecraft, know that first. This anthology is a marvelous collection of weird fiction, some of it of a violent brutal nature. Some of it told in a clever modern manner, others in the classic gothic/lovecraftian journal entry trope. This is a wonderful read. I highly recommend this ebook.
I did a review of this comic collection for Fanbase Press. I concluded the review as:Whispers of the Abyss Volume 2 is successful at delivering Lovecraft-inspired stories on a short scale. The intended audience may be folks on the go, but a wider audience will definitely appreciate them. The majority of the stories are competently written, but aside from a handful of exceptions, they are not necessarily original. The stories in Whispers Volume 2 that do stray from the old formula are the definit [...]
A BAG OF STRANGE TALES IT ISHello, this is quite the collection of short stories. These stories don't necessarily hold to the same theme. Most of the stories are quite dark and do not have a happy ending. Thanks.
