Very rarely do I pick up a book of short stories. Even rarer it is that I like a majority of the stories in the book. Most of the time I end up not liking more than I like. However, there are 13 stories in here that are absolutely flawless (imho).

Stories I rate highly, out of the collection:

"Fleas of the Dragon"
"A Forty Share In Innsmouth"
"The Horror at Columbia Terrace"
"Juggernaut"

The stories in this collection feature the grimly heroic protagonists uncovering horrors and then protecting humanity from said horrors. While Lovecraft is the only mythos creator I'm familiar with who's work Henderson builds upon, I could be easily persuaded to hunt up more of the source material based on the strength of the stories in this collection alone.

I got this book for Christmas one year and could not put it down. This got my hooked on CJ Henderson stories, especially the Teddy London stories. Highly recommended!
