Full of the usual Lovecraft tropes and imaginative and fun. Of course, you must also take the bad as well, repetitive setups and abrupt endings.
Cold Print was well chosen as the first story. It’s just so well written, and the main character is so snobby and unlikable as a person he becomes likable as a book character. The Vessel and Tentacle are the other two great stories. As for the rest, while I did like every single one, they just don’t measure up to those three.
So if you’re in the mood for some more Lovecraft by other authors, this will work well. And if you’re in the mood for a light chuckle, check one of the other reviewer’s names and notice how he hypes up “The Clearing.” Now go look at the preview and check the author’s name for that story…
