A solid pulp adventure

I gave this 4 stars but I see it as more of a 3.5 star book. The Old Gods Waken has a simple, straightforward plot, some genuinely eerie moments and a good sense of humor. Wellman does a particularly nice job with the Appalachian setting and dialogue. If you're new to this sort of material, this book might have more impact. As a long-time reader of pulp writers like Lovecraft, Howard (and Wellman himself), I found myself entertained but in familiar territory.

Stefan Rudnicki's deep, expressive voice isn't the perfect match for this material but he always does a good job and this book is no exception.
