really liked it

The Gods of HP Lovecraft is an anthology easily enjoyed by those new to the twelve principal deities of the Lovecraftian Mythos. If, like me, a reader doesn't have much experience reading Lovecraft, the commentary on each deity, written by Donald Tyson, is a simple way to familiarize oneself prior to reading the story. Though, it would have been more practical for newbies (or those needing a quick refresher) if each commentary were presented before the new stories, not after.

While there are hits and misses, par for the course in reading anthologies, the clear standouts are the artwork and Seanan McGuire's "Down, Deep Down, Below the Waves."

3.5 stars

Received paperback from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
