I'm about 33% through this right now. A lot of it is very fun, but in general its been a bit of a slog due to two factors. First, I find Lovecraft's general paranoia a bit hard to empathize with - I tend to think of the world as being ruled mostly by benign incompetence, rather than malicious conspiracy. Second, Christ is the man long-winded. Pretty much every story hear could stand to lose about 30% of its total length.

The Hound was really good too.
Imprisoned with the pharaohs was not what i expected at first and even bore me in the beginning, but certanly proved to be enjoyable and was like a fresh breath among all th

He cannot really do female characters and the adverbs and adjectives become very familiar. Clark Aston Smith and James Branch Caball are much better writers in this genre, but Lovecraft was the inventor and the founder of New England Gothic, and seminal to many others. Jack Vance and others did it bett ...more

Skipping on rating this one, simply because there are so many pieces in it, and I read it over years, making it hard to give an overall impression.
