ROCKFORD, Ill. - Sept. 26, 2016 - PRLog -- A special Tenth Anniversary Hard Cover Edition of The Strange Sound of Cthulhu: Music Inspired by the Writings of H.P. Lovecraft has been released. That release came about a week after the brand new book from the same author (Gary Hill) Poetry of the Air: A Collection of Love Letters from Musicians to Music.

The Strange Sound of Cthulhu...
has earned some great reviews in the ten years since it was released. For instance, in "Dark Realms" magazine, Russell Williams said, "'The Strange Sound of Cthulhu' is a fascinating compilation of musical artists who have paid homage to the father of modern horror, in turn adding their own new chapters to Lovecraft¹s ever-growing cult mythology. Highly recommended for rock historians and Lovecraft aficionados alike." H.P. Lovecraft expert S.T. Joshi said the book was "one of the most interesting books I've ever read."

The title to the new book Poetry of the Air comes from a quote attributed to Jean-Paul Richter: " Music is the poetry of the air." The book includes exclusive interviews with musicians including Tommy James, Bun E. Carlos, members or former members of bands including Judas Priest, Yes, Rage, Klaatu, Genesis, Hawkind, King's X, Head East, California Guitar Trio, King Crimson, Dream Theater, Uriah Heep, Electric Prunes and many more. The interviews all bring unique perspectives to the passion that is music. Heath Alberts of "The Rockford Blog" called it "ridiculously interesting" and said, "this work is a must-have for the serious music enthusiast."

Gary Hill has been publishing Music Street Journal (musicstreetjournal.com) since 1998. In addition to The Strange Sound...and Poetry of the Air...two other books (The Concert Photography of Gary Hill and Strange Realities: The Collected Short Stories of Gary Hill) have been released. Several of his short stories are set to appear in an upcoming anthology Rockford Writes 2.

The Anniversary Edition of Strange Sound... (hardcover) and both hard cover and paperback editions of Poetry of the Air are currently available at lulu.com/strangesound. Other books including the original paperback of Strange Sound are also there. Some of Hill's book can be found at Amazon.com and other sites, as well.
