Its out there... you just have to find it

What disappointed you about Lovecraft's Monsters?

The sometimes lack of substance to the stories. A few were good but the vast majority were not. They didn't have the real meat to it like many of the off shoots of Lovecrafts stories do.

Has Lovecraft's Monsters turned you off from other books in this genre?

I am always looking and *listening for great Lovecraftian Cthulu Mythos stories. I have found some here and there. In this one the Neil Gaiman story was great, so were a few others yet some left me hoping the story would end soon as they were dry as the Sahara.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was about Lovecraftian critters, that is its only true redeeming quality.

The best stories are the short ones

This anthology contains stories ranging in length from 15 minutes to a couple of hours. Sadly, the longer the story is in this collection, the less terrifying and interesting to continue it is.

There are a couple of examples, but the longest stories are not worth the time or the payoff.
