This collection had some good stories, bad stories, and weird Lord Dunsayian stories Then again everyone s perceptions of the stories will be different And that is a good thing. Twice I set out to read Randolph Carter s dream quest and twice I was snatched away I first purchased this book way back in 2003, when I wasn t much of a reader Fast forward to now and the third time was the charm This one took me a while, mostly because I had a lot of stress, had to move and such, but it was well worth it Lovecraft s dream quest has some of his best stuff In this collection there s loads of great shorts like The Nameless City and Beyond the Wall of Sleep some novel l Twice I set out to read Randolph Carter s dream quest and twice I was sn
If you think Lovecraft is all doom and madness, this compilation of stories is here to teach an important lesson sometimes he s also writing about how cats can save someone from moon monsters This collection of short stories is a well selected look into the stories Lovecraft wrote set in and around the world of dreams Only brushing the Cthulhu mythos, I found these other works to offer arounded view of the author and the universe he created Inclu
I need to get a couple of things up front, right off the bat 1 I have a great and abiding fondness for many of Lovecraft s stories Pickman s Model is a longtime favourite, and The Dunwich Horror and The Colour out of Space and The Cats of Ulthar are part of my very early memories of horror fiction 2 Oh dear god the man was racist The man was horrendously racist, and it s not all just the time period he was living in The first story as opposed to fragment in this book is oh dear I need to get a couple of things up front, right off the bat 1 I have a great and abiding fondness for many of Lovecraft s stories Pickman s Model is a longtime favourite, and The Dunwich Horror and The Colour out of Space and The Cats of Ulthar are part of my very early memories of horror fiction 2 Oh dear god the man was racist The man was horrendously racist, and it s not all just the time period he was living in The first story as opposed to fragment in this book is oh dear god,
As should be obvious from the title, this collection of Lovecraft stories focuses on dreams In many of these tales, Lovecraft suggests that dreams are where truth actually lies as opposed to reality where it is often thought to be He believes dreams are things whose vaguely exciting and disquieting effect suggests possible minute glimpses into a sphere of mental existence no less important than physical life yet separated from that life by an all but impassable barrier And most of the chara As should be obvious from the title, this collection of Lovecraft stories focuses
