How solidly anchored are the Lovecraft stories of Cthulhu, Arkham, Miskatonic University in the early 20th century? Have there been any significant efforts to update the mythos, with stories, to an early 21st century setting? If so, how well has the idea of a "Cthulhu Now" caught on with the fans?

Charles Stross has a series of stories that assume that certain mathematics and algorithms are magic and give access to occult tools including things similar to Lovecratian horrors.
The British government agency in charge of these matters is "The Laundry" and gives its nickname to the setting and stories.
