I don't think it's quite as perfect as the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society's Miskatonic University Press monographs, but that is probably due to the greater length of this book, and occasional shifts in tone caused by the varying authorship of some of the descriptions. I think paraphrase of Miss Jean Brodie, in the review title says it all, except that I do not intend her condescension. It is still a superior imposture.
I assure you, potential readers - this is a tome that was not simply cobbled together; It is a successful opus, compiled with great care and understanding of the subject matter. It has its moments of dry humor, but most of all it is a perfect volume to delve into on a night when shadows are deep and one needs a break from anthologies, and so enjoy another means wherein the fictional world we all enjoy is added on to in a most favorable way.
I constantly find myself flipping through it just for the visuals.
