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.
