H. P. Lovecraft was born August 20, 1890 and the DriveThru sites (RPG, Comics, Fiction) are celebrating with a huge sale on hundreds of Cthulhu Mythos eBooks, audiobooks and other goodies.
We’ve gathered a list of some our favorite titles from each site here on Flames Rising. Note, we only selected from titles currently available in the sale, so we are definitely not saying this is some sort of be-all-end-all list of the absolute best Mythos tomes event, this is just a fun list of some our personal favorites. Enjoy!

Bill’s picks for Cthulhu Mythos Fiction eBooks:
Cthulhu 101 from Atomic Overmind – This dandy little guidebook by Kenneth Hite tells you everything you need to know to seem like a master of Mythos knowledge!
Shotguns v Cthulhu from Stone Skin Press – This entertaining collection of Mythos tales that span the centuries features stories from authors like Larry DiTillo, Nick Mamatas, Robin D. Laws, Dave Gross, and Kenneth Hite.
Harlan County Horrors from Apex Book Company – A wonderful collection of creepy tales, a number of which are distinctly Cthulu-esque in nature.
The Trellborg Monstrosities from Modiphius Entertainment – This novel melds the action of the Second World War with Lovefcraft’s typical theme: humans meddling in things they don’t understand. A team of Commandos confronts nameless horror in Scandinavia, but will they survive, much less fulfill their mission?
The Dunwich Horror Audio Book from Renegade Arts Entertainment – One of the creepiest stories of all time read out loud; perfect for long trips down lonely country roads…
Kolchak: The Night Stalker: A Black and Evil Truth from Moonstone Books – I continue to be impressed with the work Moonstone has done in reviving the Kolchak property.

Whispers from the Abyss from 01 Publishing – A diverse collection of short stories by some of modern Mythos writing’s brightest and best, including Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Greg Stolze, Dennis Detwiller, Nick Mamatas, and Jason Andrew.
Letters to Lovecraft from Stone Skin Press – An anthology not inspired by Lovecraft’s stories, but by his essay “Supernatural Horror in Literature”. The goal of this collection is to respond to his ideas more than riffing off specific stories. An excellent collection of contributors also make this a book well worth reading.
