did not like it

** spoiler alert ** While I enjoyed The Mask of Cthulhu, Derleth's older collection of Mythos stories, his mythos novel The Trail of Cthulhu appeared rather disappointing to me. The main reason is the novel's tendency to "overdo it". For example, the necromantic conjuration of Abdul Alhazred's spirit and the nuclear bombardement are almost quintessential "jumping the shark" moments.
