    1. Cthulhusattva: Tales of the Black Gnosis is a collection of Cthulhu mythos stories. The theme of the collection is enlightenment through insanity, that the cultists found in most mythos stories are the extremists and that more or less regular people lead more or less normal lives while worshiping the Great Old Ones, Elder Gods, and the like.Like most anthologies, the stories range from okay to pretty damn good. For me, the standouts were We Three Kings, Messages, Mr. Johnson and the Old Ones, an [...]


    2. Cthulhusattva: Tales of the Black Gnosis is quite a trip. Initially, I gave it four stars, as I often do for an anthology -- every story doesn't work for everyone, you know. But after some thought, I'm bumping it up to five because, thematically, it's something new (at least to me) in Mythos literature.Madness, madness, madness. We all know the Old Ones bring madness to mankind. Happens all the time. But here's a twist: the motif of Cthulhusattva is pushing through that soul-shattering chaos to [...]


    3. I wanted to like this book. The concept is cool, and the introduction sounded promising. Alas, I found most of the stories here boring and uninteresting. They are not cosmic enough. They are way too much about human affairs - love and sadness and pointless things like that.One of the worst was the longest, "The Litany of Earth", which deals with Deep Ones and their hybrid children. This story is NOT "black gnosis"! The whole story is about human compassion and forgiveness and being nice to each [...]


    4. More like 3.5 stars.My expectation for anthologies is if I like more than half of the stories, it;s a 3 star anthology.I definitely liked several stories - those by Grant, Satyamurthy, Paradias, Brazos, Emrys, and DeMeester.


    5. No fainting scholars here, but Cthulhusattva isn't either, quite, a book from the cultists' point of view; members of organised cults as depicted in this anthology are frequently in possession of only a part of the truth they claim to seek, and in a number of stories come off badly. More, this is a set of stories about individuals, on journeys literal and metaphorical, intended and accidental, toward a revelation of the "deadly light." Personal favourites among those stories written for this vol [...]


    6. Truly mind-blowing philosophical explorations of H.P.L.'s writing in the form of intense and entertaining weird fiction. One of the best of 2016, and possibly of all time.


    7. I am giving this collection two stars because some of it was pretty memorable and certainly macabre; no complaints there. Maybe Lovecraftian horror isn't my thing, or maybe these stories just weren't all that good despite some memorable characters (and gore). Either way, I only got about 1/3 of the way through this before I "returned" it to . That's unusual for me as I very rarely give up on a book - even an anthology.


    8. Here is a very intriguing and engaging collection of great yarns any fan of HP Lovecraft can sink her tentacles into. But there's more here and those looking at the subterranean side of human questing for what lies behind that door left slightly ajar or beyond that next mist filled valley will find a lot to recognize in these pages. As a collection of great mind horror, there's not a miss in the batch.


    9. A Cthulhu Mythos book with the premise that the main characters are cultists.….………….…………………SIGN ME UP!I think that concept has a lot of untapped potential. So, does this book live up to that potential?For the most part, I gotta say yes. I was initially wary of this collection, as the intro has the editor stating he is a bit tired of Lovecraft and it has the story “The Litany of Earth”, a well marketed Counter Lovecraft piece I was overwhelmingly lukewarm about on my f [...]


    10. An interesting anthology that focuses on the mystical side of the Cthulhu mythos. The stories within cast a dark light on the religious aspects of the Old Ones and the Elder Gods, and interprets their reign as a source of black gnosis (as described in the subtitle). This does not mean that the stories are all from the perspective on the cultists, nor does it mean that the traditional antagonists become the hero in these stories, although sometimes that is the case. This does mean that the focus [...]


    11. Not for meIts a collection of Cthulhu tales that failed to draw me in. I am a great fan of anthologies and Cthulhu mythos. I expected this book to thrill me but it didn't. Am not sure if the weakness in the tales was the plot, characters, the presentation or all three. I mainly read through the book to get to the end.


    12. A mixed bag of Lovecraftian short stories. Here the unifying theme is those who embrace the Old Gods and their ways. A few of the stories are too 'experimental' for my taste. I like a strong narrative. On the other hand, a few of the stories are superb: "The Litany of Earth" by Ruthanna Emrys is hands-down my favorite.Read this if you're always looking for new weird fiction. Skip it if you haven't read the original Lovecraft stories yet.


    13. By swapping normal protagonist reactions about 180 degrees and featuring a lot of under-the-radar talent, this collections manages to be both entertaining and thought provoking.


    14. Cthulhusattva is an excellent collection of stories centered on those who play parts in the return of elder things, either voluntarily or no. Definitely recommended.
