Praise and Reviews

this is an engrossing selection of stories that stands like a beacon in an increasingly large sea of tepid Lovecraftian anthologies – David Goudsward / Hellnotes

This anthology solidly delivers an array of Lovecraft inspired tales. 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.  –  Jaffa Kintigh / Jaffalog

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. – Nicholas Diak / Fanbase Press

There are stories within this collection that show a mastery of dread and ooze suspense. Other pin hopelessness against the promise of more, mounting punishment and terror on an infinite path. Mostly, this collection is quite good and at moments, it proves great.
– Eddie Generous / Unnerving Magazine
