Review by: Robert Zimmermann on March 21, 2014 :
This was a quick flash fiction story based on one of Lovecraft's most notable works, The Call of Cthulhu. Well, loosely based and with an added humourous, satirically horrific ending that a modern reader can sympathize with.

It's a fun few minute read with a good twist at the end. I definitely will be checking out other stories from the author.

Review by: Jonathan Antony Strickland on March 11, 2014 :
This is a really expert piece of flash fiction writing. Although at its heart it is a simple pun...it is a bloody good one and executed perfectly.

But the thing for me that makes it stand out from the rest is the writing, wickedly told to throw the reader into thinking he is reading a deep and dark horror...Though the true horror as anybody from our generation will tell you comes indeed from the very last sentence itself!

Cthulhu had come out of hibernation. He did not know what had changed over the yrs.
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written sci-fi or paranormal (fiction) short story (book). It was fairly easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Totally bizarre. Lots of scenarios & a great set of unique characters. A very easy rating of 5 stars for this short story (book).
Thank you for the free short story (book)

Much fun! I can hardly wait for The Ancient Ones to take over the planet. I for one welcome our new dark overlords!

Review by: Michael Carter on March 9, 2014 :
Excellent lovecraftiness; a very simple idea, a basic idea, yet a great one for a parody. The writer's skill at pacing, and setting the tone work perfectly. I kinda more-or-less expected the ending, but it arrived superbly inevitably.

As far as simple flash-fiction lovecraftian parody goes, this is hard to beat.
