Triumph

Short Story by Damir Salkovic
Read for Tales to Terrify #52 by Bob Neufeld

Alternate history in which the Nazis summon Lovecraftian entities to help them win WWII.

A touch predictable; the general direction of the bad end the Nazis are coming to is visible a long way off, but the specifics are interesting.  More interesting than that is the fun pulpy section detailing the discovery of ancient texts man-was-not-meant-to-read.  I've always had a soft-spot for Nazi occultism stories, and making them Lovecraftian is not a bad direction.  Fun Nazi junk food.

3 Reichsf├╝hrer chips out of 5.
