Top Eight

Comment with the words "Top Ten" or "Top Five", and I will reply with a subject for which you will generate a top ten (or top five) list. Post the list and instructions in your own journal...

Top Eight non-Lovecraft Cthulhu Mythos stories. It was supposed to be ten but some of my books are in the attic and so I only managed eight favourites. The first two are available on line. I suppose a few are not strictly Cthulhu Mythos, but they do have the Mythos Ethos.

A Colder War - Charles Stross
    The Cold War meets the Mythos head-on
A Study in Emerald - Neil Gaiman
    Holmes' London as it never was
The Courtyard - Alan Moore
    Grimy and grim, with drugs.
The Willows - Algernon Blackwood
    Otherworldly interactions on an island in the Danube.
Suicide Watch - Arinn Dembo (Dark Theatres)
    Nirvana as Mythos.
The Yellow Sign - Robert Chambers
    Lugubrious and creepy.
Cold Print - Ramsey Campbell
    A warning on second hand bookshops.
The Tsalal - Thomas Ligotti
    An occult cult does what it must
