4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Collection of Occult Detective Stories
If you're a fan of Seabury Quinn and his master criminologist/occult expert Jules de Grandin, you'll appreciate this collection. Lin Carter was quite open that this was intended to be an homage to de Grandin (as well as Howard's Steve Harrison and Rohmer's Neyland Smith), but Carter's stories stand alone very well. The stories by other authors are interesting, but the...

1.0 out of 5 stars Where's the Mythos?
For fans of Lovecraft? From what I've seen this has nothing to do with the Cthulhu Mythos. No Cthulhu, R'Lyeh, Nyarlathotep. I don't think you should have "psychic gumshoe" in horror stories. It sounds like something from the kid's section. If you want Mythos buy Lovecraft.

This review is from: Lin Carter's Anton Zarnak Supernatural Sleuth (Paperback)
If you're a fan of Seabury Quinn and his master criminologist/occult expert Jules de Grandin, you'll appreciate this collection. Lin Carter was quite open that this was intended to be an homage to de Grandin (as well as Howard's Steve Harrison and Rohmer's Neyland Smith), but Carter's stories stand alone very well. The stories by other authors are interesting, but the love for (and knowledge of) this sub-genre shines through in Carter's two offerings.

The reviewer who found no Cthulhu Mythos in these stories was mistaken. Every single story makes reference to things Lovecraftian.

5.0 out of 5 stars NEW TWISTS ON OLD FAVORITE, February 8, 2003
By 
Ron Fortier "Air Chief" (Fort Collins, Colorado) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Lin Carter's Anton Zarnak Supernatural Sleuth (Paperback)
Robert Price is a genius editor. Rather than having his eight writers created new stories of the late Lin Carter's hero in the exact same mold as the originator, he let them run loose with the character. The results are 8 marvelous adventures, each giving us
new and different approaches to Anton Zarnak' from action, to horro and even some comedy mixed-in. More anthologies should be this
fun.
