So, while eldrktch is a wonderful collection that no Lovecraft enthusiast should be without, I just can’t whole-heartedly endorse it with a Rickommendation. I really liked this story, since I am really interested in Greek Mythology and Artisans of the th Century from all over the world, they are interesting, intelligent people, and they inspire me.

As mentioned every time I review a Lovecraft book I note i can see what was terrifying in the stories but they didn’t scare me, a disconnect I assume created by the approximately century separating us.
