Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Taking inspiration from H.P. Lovecraft's 1930s verse epic Fungi from Yuggoth, Schwader (Strange Stars & Alien Shadows) serves up a 36-sonnet cycle that gives its eldritch horror theme a space-age slant. When members of a manned expedition to Mars stumble upon a cave of mysterious living crystals, they fall under the malignant influence of alien beings who transport them through a "Gate Between the Stars" to a world of horrifying extraterrestrial monsters and life forms that defy human comprehension. Schwader describes this nightmare realm in vivid images that are captured eerily in moody black-and-white illustrations provided by Steve Lines. She also conveys a sense of cosmic awe and terror that speaks to her Lovecraftian influences and shows with poetic precision the dark side of science fiction.

In the Yaddith Time is a book of sonnets by Ann K. Schwader published by Mythos Books in 2007. List price is ony $10.00, but then there are only 54 pages. Each of the 36 sonnets gets its own page (the same number of sonnets in Fungi from Yuggoth). The cover art is by Steve Lines of Rainfall Books (he has one painting appear in the wonderful A Lovecraft Retrospective from Centipede Press). who also provides a fair number of interior drawings, most of them next to the sonnet they are illustrating. I didn't particularly get jazzed by the cover although I liked all of his interior drawings. The introduction was by Richard Tierney and I thought it was a very good introduction. Ms. Schwader is a very accomplished mythos author; her collection Strange Stars and Alien Shadows from Lindisfarne Press is an excellent read (remember the good old days when Lindisfarne Press was going to publish so many anthologies?). I like good poetry but I basically have only read the best the English language has to offer, guided by college literature classes. When I read the tidbits in mythos books they tend to be pretty lame by comparison. Nonetheless, I like Ms. Schwader's fiction so much I had to give In the Yaddith Time a try.

The inclusion of 36 sonnets is a direct nod to Fungi from Yuggoth (BTW some day Hippocampus Press is publishing an annotated Fungi from Yuggoth; can't wait for that!). She uses Shakespeare's model of 14 lines of iambic pentameter. I counted three different rhyme schemes:

ababcdcdefefgg
abbacddceffegg
abbacddcefgfge

One thing that is very difficult is to avoid a dog trot kind of feel to iambic pentameter; Ms. Schwader is too skilled to fall into that trap.
