    Full transparency here: I'm one of the authors. My collaborator Michael and I present five tales of the grotesque and the bizarre, swarming with hideous, malicious creatures...

    A fun anthology with some really interesting ideas and takes on the Lovecraftian mythos. I enjoyed the stories as easy reads, and I found something to like in each of the tales, although I wasn’t always convinced by the execution/development of them. For that reason I initially felt this would be a 3* review, but actually, after reading, some of the images and characters stuck with me from stories I hadn’t been blown away by on the first pass.

I enjoyed the stories as easy reads, and I found something to like in each of the tales, although I wasn’t always convinced by the execution/development of them. For that reason I initially felt this would be a 3* review, but actually, after reading, some of the images and characters stuck with me from stories I hadn’t been blown away by on the first pass. I am a sucker for stories that make me think about them afterwards, so as I will be reading this anthology again I think it’s fair to say “I really liked it” rather than just “I liked it”. My favourite story out of all of them was The Foul One Lives to Destroy, because I loved the imagery and The House of Hungry Doors which is just such a great concept/image. It’s also about one of my favourite Lovecraftian entities, not to be spoilery. That one for me is a 4* story. My second favourite was The Sea-Green Gown with a Gold Buttons, which has some really striking images that stuck in my mind and played with the King in Yellow (play) and the Yellow Sign, as well as dream-visits to Carcosa, and I liked that the protagonist in that was a drag queen (and that his name was Ambrose, which was maybe a deliberate homage to Ambrose Bierce?). I’d give that 3.5* if possible so... I guess round up. The others didn’t appeal to me as much, but again, I found something to appreciate in each of them, and I will probably revisit it.

    Definitely Weird Sea Creatures, Spiders.. Dreamlands. I’ve read a little H.P. Lovecraft so I’m no scholar or expert but I remember reading he liked for his stories to seem real with one absurd twist like a cave with a weird deity. So to me these seem like a bunch of Lovecraft Lore jumbled into a new story which was entertaining. There are only a couple stories so it’s a quick read.

    It's rare that I truly can say I enjoy every story in a collection, but I am happy to be able to say that about this one. Original and imaginative, it's hard to pick a favorite, but since I'm partial to cats, it might be the very first short, The Ambassador from Ulthar. This is a collection is the perfect read for your summer beach vacation getaway.

    This was a fun read! Short horror stories inspired, as you can guess by the title, by Lovecraftian mythology. The stories are imaginative, clever, and spiced with black humour.
