As with most Mythos anthologies, the clumsy and obvious rubs shoulders with the skillful and cosmic. (Seriously, though, anthology editors -- edit the damned things! If one story has flawless punctuation and the next doesn't know what a comma is for, it's the editor I'm cursing.)

I only read the Conyers and Sunseri stories.

Finished two of the stories, nothing exciting. I am not spending more time on this.

This is a very consistent anthology, none of the stories are terrible, but none really stand out either. The stories are very loosely connected, with some characters from earlier stories being referred to in later stories. Not surprisingly, as this is published by Chaosium, it meshes well with the Call of Cthulhu rpg - many of these stories could be fairly easily adapted into rpg adventures.

A solid short story collection. I feel that the overall quality of the stories is higher than most of the similar collections in Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu fiction line.

References a lot of Call of Cthulhu adventures, indirectly at least, so those unfamiliar with the products won't get as much from this.
