This is a good and fun anthology, the variety of stories and styles making it a great read for a lazy summer day. Although I encountered a couple of stories of dubious understanding of the historical setting and insistence on the politically correct to the detriment of imagination, I gave the anthology five stars because it is overall wonderful and well written, containing a lot fo knowledge and research in history by the authors.
My personal faves were 'Black Hill,' an interesting take on an oil operation, 'Deus Ex Machina,' especially as an ex theatre geek, 'Shadows of the Deepest Jade,'...honestly, there wasn't a story that I didn't enjoy, though there were ones I definitely preferred over others. Innsmouth Free Press did a great job picking a wide array of subject matters and time periods. I thought the Modern Era stories would be less interesting but 'Black Hill' is honestly one of my favorites and happens within the last 200 years. Cultures, religions and governments are all fair game and rattled by not only Cthulhu but shoggoths, The Old Ones, Nyarlathotep, The Deep Ones, all answering the questions put forward by the stories. If you are only interested in stories told in the same voice of HP Lovecraft this is probably not the book for you. However, if you can appreciate that fear is eternal and calls out in a variety of voices, as well as have a thing for the ideas that Lovecraft put forth? You need to check this book out.

Another very enjoyable collection of Cthulhu stuff, this time spread across human history and beyond. Highly recommended. R'lyeh Rises again!Published 19 months ago by Kindle Customer
This mixed bag of short stories is, overall, enjoyable. Some of the stories fail to conclude and just stop without resolving whatever plot was hinted at in the tale.Published on March 15, 2014 by The History Teacher
