Overview

A collection of creepy tales by America's finest horror author. At the heart of these stories, as with all the best of Lovecraft's work, is the belief that the Earth was once inhabited by powerful and evil gods, just waiting for the chance to recolonise their planet. Cthulhu is one such god, lurking deep beneath the sea until called into being by cult followers who- like all humans - know not what they do.

I found this book dull. It was not suspenseful at all. I got through 2 CDs and called it a day.

Lovecraft was not the best writer of prose. Some of his paragraphs read like self-parodies. A writer like Robert Howard was a far better craftsman. But Lovecraft remains the more prolific and influential imaginer. The reader -- William Roberts -- knows just how to read this ponderous prose for dramatic effect.
