Well, I do enjoy some horror from time to time. I was really looking forward to this collection of short Cthulhu stories as I am a big fan of Delta Green and the Cthulhu mythos. Sad to say, I was left a bit disappointed by the quality of the stories. I'd have to say that the fourth and sixth stories in the collection (Copping Squid and Passing Spirits) were personal faves while the third (Engravings) was down right awful, imho. Very much a mixed bag of uneven quality.
Honestly, it could just be the short story format, as I found myself enjoying most of the longer stories (well, Engravings was just plain BAD and I would have been happier had it been MUCH shorter). Worth a look if you're into the Mythos.
