The foreword promises so much. And the authors too, are no small potatoes. And I like that these are obscure stories, spurned by anthologies, unnoticed by compilers of collections (except for H.P. Lovecraft's story here, which I read in one of his book of short stories, not from an anthology). And perhaps this is why most are disappointments. Or am I just jaded? It's a pretty old book--1970.

This anthology had a nice mix of authors (Lovecraft, Bradbury, Bloch, along with some lesser known ones), but the stories themselves were pretty lackluster. Even those entries by notable authors were without exception minor works. Lovecraft's "Cool Air" was probably the best of the bunch, but it's a far cry from Lovecraft's best. Overall this anthology is decent, but not worth seeking out.

A pretty decent collection, but the stories aren't the best by these authors, which includes Bradbury, Howard, Derleth, Brand, and Lovecraft.
