really liked it

This book is a collection of (ostensibly) Lovecraft-influenced stories set throughout the ages. Ranging from ancient Mesopotamia to the modern world, it is divided into three sections: Ancient History, Middle Ages, and the Modern Era. The stories often incorprate the hisotry of legends of the time periods and cultures in question, something Lovecraft himself was fond of doing. With some of the stories, the connetion to the Cthulhu mythos is fairly blatant, with others marginal at best (more in spirit than content). As with most collections, this is a mixed bag. However, as far as collections go I have to say these tales are consistently pretty dang good.
