"Clark Ashton Smith's stories are fantastic. August Derleth, although I hoped the rumours weren't true, is too much like bad fan-fiction and clunky to read. It's funny how much like fan fiction it all is, actuall, especially when Lovecraft himself is mentioned within these stories as a source for characters trying to survive or investigate."

Galápagos by Kurt Vonnegut
"I've read most all of the Vonnegut's at this point, and this is undoubtedly one of the best. An ironic look at evolution based on a twist to the Gilligan's island premise. Basically, a group travelers stranded on the islands are forced to breed to..." Read more of this review »

A great collection of delectably written Lovecraftian nightmares, journeying from lethal frozen wastes to the oppressive heat of the desert, taking in an artist studio and a corrupt research university along the way.

A must read if you're after a set...more

Brilliant. A warm, smart, despairing, uplifting, upsetting, idealistic, and cynical examination of the end of the world...sort of.

Also, I know so much more about the Galapagos Islands than I ever knew was worth knowing. I hope the vampiric finches a...more
