Whoa. Whoooa.

Although not written by Lovecraft, the selected authors and editing capture the feeling exactly. That feeling is somehow much worse than that evoked by a Stephen King novel. Nothing is quirky, humorous, or escapable. The reader is hoping nothing so sneaky ever happens to them, lest they be sucked into the traps.

There are bad things in some horror books. This, though, taps into some combination of history, the Earth being a water planet, the supernatural, and the interstellar. This is truly a lose-all-hope, as the evil is so much larger than that of Earth there is no escape in this frame.

And the smell...
