An HP Lovecraft Primer

(4 Sterne)

Here are some of HP Lovecraft's, (and a few others,) greatest influences, and nicely done. Very enjoyable if you are interested in early horror works. These are stories from a time when people had delicate sensibilities, and any thoughts of the outré were enough to deprive one of a good nights sleep.

Well read

(4 Sterne)

A feast for the imagination, and very enjoyable. Some interesting ideas, and I especially liked what is it-had me laughing at the furtiveness at the beginning :)

neat little collection

(5 Sterne)

some real gems in there. all the readers do a great job.

An interesting and ecclectic collection

(4 Sterne)

Many classic stories, well told.
