This is one of those annoying books where I am torn for its rating. Its hard going, sometimes obscure sometimes confusing. It is also an excellent source of rare and lesser know mythos works and it is an excellent tour of the lesser explored works that make up the world of the Cthulhu Mythos. So why the frustration - well for one thing its not easy to get in to - the book is excellently printed and the pages clean and easy to read - but the stories - well not all of them instantly grab me - but ...more

A difficult book to review, indeed.
Where it's good, it's GREAT, where it's not it's REALLY not good.

I don't recommend it for people fresh to Lovecraft's mythos, but it contains a number of pearls, most notably "Mr. Skin" (Victor Milan), "Typo" (Michael D. Winkle) and "Pickman's Le ...more

A collection of stories based on the writings of H.P. Lovecraft. These are, to me, only slightly better than the original Lovecraft stories. Just not a fan of his writings. Not recommended

I'm just not feelin' the eldritch horror from these stories. A couple were OK but nothing realling grabbed me (in a literary way - not in a tentacles from space kind of way).
Tom Mueller
It was HP Lovecraft's wish for others to continue his work in this realm. The result of that continuing work has been sporadic, with some coming closer to Lovecraft's legacy.
