Let me start by saying I am not a Lovecraft Lover. I bought this because I feel that no matter the genre, that I will usually find an author in any anthology that is worth discovering. Plus I am a fan of Joe Lansdale. After trying to listen I find I would rather drink TWO FINGERS OF COFFIN VARNISH. I gave each and every story a shot, but very few interested me. I did enjoy a story by Brian Hodge. Bear had a good story going with really good characters and than it just ended. Newman and Spencer were okay, but the rest, meh.

If you are not familiar with Lovecraft, this would not be the place to start. Several of his individual stories are available at audio. I would suggest purchasing one of the them and you will know right off if you are a fan. His stories are often not describable. He will even mention that in his story. It is very common place in his stories for him to tell the reader that he could not describe a feeling, a sound, a look, etc... The stories are also usually open ended. All of this, is I guess, so you can use your own imagination to fill in the blanks. But what do I know, I am just a GREASY HUMAN.

The ones that were good were really good!!!

Most of the stories are really good. Skip Blackest from pole to pole and the stand out story for me was Red goad black goat, it was really scary in my opinion; I wish it was a full length novel.

contributors and content expertly sourced!

Ellen Datlow has again created an anthology of content and brings a collection of contributors that truly extend the works of Lovecraft in terms of their depth, breadth and range of voices and accents...

One more for my baby....

Would you try another book written by Neil Gaiman and Ellen Datlow (Editor) or narrated by Bernard Clark?


What did you like best about this story?

Good mix of HPL inspired stories, all an hour-ish long so great for a commute. Some better than others but good fun. Got to the monsters without the pages of vague waffle about architecture and bas-reliefs that the great man was so fond of.

Any additional comments?

Well worth a read, as with most short story collections, a chapter listing would be great rather than just numbers.
