For the price an excellent buy
on April 19, 2012
I just bought and downloaded the Kindle Cthulhu Mythos megapack. The selection of stories is very good, featuring some of the best of the classic Cthulhu Mythos tales, but added a few stories that have been published in the last few years. Pictmans Modem was a nice touch on a classic Hp Lovecraft story and was fun to read.
The basic formating for the stories was serviceable. NO illustrations, but for .99 cents its kinda hard to complain.
Many of the stories contained in this collection have had mountains of reviews and commentary and I don't feel the need to add to that. I am reading from a e-reader that is not a kindle, but has a kindle reader software on it and I am reading the stories just fine. Some folks might find the navigation of the stories a bit hard to do, but again, when you can pick up a great selection of Mythos stories for the cost of a can of soda....I find it hard to nitpick.
For those that have not gotten into Lovecraft and his followers, its a nice gateway book to start at.
Long time fans might not find much new here, but if you have a E-reader and would like to revisit some of the classic Cthulhu stories....this is a great buy.
All in all, its a solid buy for folks that like horror/dark fantasy stories.
