None of the stories in this collection are badly written, and the authors have abundant publication credits, but there's very little here that seems horrible or terrifying in a Lovecraftian sort of way. Many of the plots are of an ignorant soul encountering a terrible thing. The main character survives or doesn't. The terrible things could be Bigfoot, Wendigo, or Freddy Krueger, but they aren't exactly Cthulhu and company. In other words, the plots are sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you.
A few of the stories have effective moments, but even there the clash in tone undermines their effectiveness. Reading the stories here makes me appreciate the writing of Lovecraft all the more, but the anthology's theme is still an intriguing idea and maybe someone in the future can bring off a successful effort.
Aside from a mention here or there of a Cthulhu Cycle entity it could have been just a regular horror book. Nothing really Lovecraftian.
Some of the stories were great but most were just mediocre. Hopefully 'The Spiraling Worm' which I bought at the same time turns out better.

This book is more adventure than horror tales. Also, we find good stories and bad ones. I liked "Snake oil" and "incident at Dagon Wells". Read morePublished on October 19, 2013 by Persio Sandir Doliveira
This one has a number of stories I hadn't read before. I really liked "in Waters Black the Lost Ones Sleep" by Angeline Hawkes. The others were good.Published on January 16, 2013 by Pepper
