Read in October, 2011

Lovecraft did for New England what Fred and Rosemary West did for the Gloucester tourist board, and what the meat pie floater did for South Australian cuisine. This book would provide ample evidence for the prosecution should New England ever choose to sue Lovecraft from beyond the grave. It is also one of Lovecraft's finest works in my opinion, not least because it is one of his longest in which his ideas are fully fleshed out. I would recommend this, At the Mountains of Madness and The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath to anyone interested as his best standalone stories.
