While there are a few good stories in the bunch, the most seem repetitive with the same themes and plots.
The ending here reminded me of that cartoon.
In addition, Derleth also seems to feel a need to show the reader that he is an expert in the Cthulhu mythos. To get the free app, enter your mobile phone number.

A couple others are interesting and couple other not so good. Overall I liked the book, but August Derleth is sort of hit or miss. Derleth just isn’t the sort of Master of unrolling paranoia and exploring psychology that Lovecraft is — he depends on st This book is sort of “Meh” made incarnate.
But if you are into Lovecraft and Mythos tales, you will definitely enjoy this book and the stories just on their own are pretty cool. Some First, let’s be clear.
