    A meteorite crashes to the ground, and was found to contain a globule with strange properties and a colour that has never been seen before - the colour out of space. Scientists tries to out what’s going on, but they have really no idea what they’re dealing with. The fear of the unknown sets in. Then we are told the people living closest the the crash site and how it’s affecting them – the strange things they see at night and experience within their own home. It’s not pretty.

    Initially I just wanted to read Dunwich and Cthulhu but started giving the whole book a go after enjoying them. Innsmouth and Mountain of Madness were enjoyable along with some others. I enjoyed some parts of this book and after reading the first 1,000 pages I would say I gave it a fair go but ultimately some of the stories are quite poorly written and simply dumping all of Love-crafts works in alphabetical order doesn’t make for an easy to read book.

Dream-Quest and Dexter Ward were particularly bad, I couldn’t get 1/4 into them. Dream-Quest read like religious scripture. Even the stories I enjoyed got very samesy. Academic learns of some weirdness in his state, goes to see it and finds Necronomicon on the book shelf, invisible monster lurks, turns out to be 8ft tall prawn/cucumber/cone/frog. Academic proceeds despite obvious danger then somehow gets away but is left traumatised.

    I’ve read a couple Lovecraft collections at this point. In doing so, I’ve read the entirety of his literary work and find the experience interesting. His short stories leave me wanting more (in a good way), and his longer fiction can feel like a slog to the finish. He sure loves to push the limits when it comes to scientific vocabulary, but if you can hang around for the spooks, it’s incredibly worth it. Hindsight is unique in thinking about the historical context in which he wrote. The horrors I’ve read a couple Lovecraft collections at this point.

Hindsight is unique in thinking about the historical context in which he wrote. The horrors he is able to conjure are incredible and almost inconceivable considering the lack of accessibility in that consideration, but his blatant and unabashed racism can be very off putting and remove me wholly from the narrative. Lovecraft somehow manages to rank high on the both the list of authors I love to read, and the list I hate reading.

    At least one essay, one play under a pseudonym, and many many stories that are weird, scary, graphic, and abstract. Lovecraft's stories takes on the fundamentals of literature. He wrote in first, second, and third person narratives. The themes scream Modernism.

It took me three months to get through this entire collection, and I'm ready for something new, as one could imagine.

    It took nearly a year but I finally finished it and it was worth it. I really appreciate this compilation and I look forward to going back to revisit some of my favorite short stories soon. I’ve tried reading Lovecraft for years and always found it hard t read but the narrators of this make it a much easier task (through no small effort on their own part).

    Lovecraft created many well-formed sentences, used truly outstanding imagery, and had uncommon ideas to express. Unfortunately, he expressed the same two ideas repeatedly, using the same imagery and similar sentences. It is remarkable how often architecture is Cyclopean and how many characters have pseudomemories, but, unless you have no memory, this collection will bore you by the time you are 1/3 in. To paraphrase, once you’ve read one Lovecraft novella, you’ve read them all.

    Probably a three and a half. I was surprised to find some non-cthulhu based stories here, as that's what I know Lovecraft for. My suggestion, though, would be to dip in and out of these stories, as after a few, they become a little repetitive. Probably a three and a half.

    The best bargain in fiction. From beginning to end, no matter how tall each tale, the reader is left with the feeling of completing an autobiography of a man with a fantastic imagination, and endless run on sentences.

    Aun cuando leí varios de sus otros cuentos, los que más me atraparon fueron las obras del llamado "Cthulhu Mythos", donde mis predilectas son: En las montañas de la locura, La llamada de Cthulhu y La sombra fuera del tiempo, siendo este última mi favorita de las tres.

    Most of Lovecrafts work was great though some of his stories fall a bit short of others

    I have mixed emotions. At times, these stories can be a real slog. Other times, I was glued to the kindle. Over all, I give it a meh. Not terrible, but definitely not my taste.

    Not sure what to say about this book. Lovecraft wrote some very bizarre stories. Some good, some odd. Because it's his entire works, I guess that's bound to happen. I can see his influence on Stephen King for sure. Glad I read it, even though it took some time to get through it. Not sure what to say about this book. Lovecraft wrote some very bizarre stories.

    I read "Re-Animator" years ago, but this was my first stab at H.P. Lovecraft's works as one (let's say "unspeakable") heap. This Amazon collection was arranged, of all ways, alphabetically by title, but honestly this isn't a bad way to read everything Lovecraft ever wrote. Even if you were to read everything in order, as it was written, the lore comes through in fits and starts, in the same way reading real world history gives you a complete picture even if you read it out of order.

Even if you were to read everything in order, as it was written, the lore comes through in fits and starts, in the same way reading real world history gives you a complete picture even if you read it out of order. This is possibly the most disquieting thing about Lovecraft's work. He creates the illusion that his Old Great Ones and divination cults are the real, secret explanation of the real world the reader inhabits. When this trick is at its best, Lovecraft's work is more existentially unsettling than just about anything else I've ever read - even 100 years+ after initial publication. At its worst, these stories get a little samey and tediously verbose. But most readers will be served by reading only the highlights, anyway, and the 8 or 10 stories/novellas that hit are truly something special. To me, Lovecraft got better and better as he aged. His early era (say 1917-1925 or so) is, for the most part, nothing special. His mid-period "Dream Stories" with the Randolph Carter character I enjoyed quite a bit, but it's the Cthulu Mythos stuff for which Lovecraft is most famous, and rightly so. He creates a new dark spirituality lurking behind the rational materialism of his age, and this technique is just as effective in our own era.

    Disclaimer: I didn’t read every story. I read 5 of them, but I enjoyed them a lot. Lovecraft’s reputation is well deserved, and this guy has “creepy” nailed to a T. Well worth the read.

    Includes some classic short stories. Some are definitely better than others though.
