I m finishing this up right now My first experience with Lumley has been very enjoyable I ll be readingvery soon My favorite stories from this collection 1.
Big C 2.
Beneath the Moors3.
David s WormFor some of the stories, you may wish to catch up on your Cthulu Mythos as they are pretty thick with Lovecraft spawned writing.
An enjoyable and classic collection of original and pastiche tales Imaginative, dark, and filled with the adverb laced descriptions of the master he so eloquently emulates It was an interesting blend of the best lovecraftian tales and themes.
Cthullu and others, driving people made.
All the stories are basically lovecraftian.
No Happy Endings.
More great short stories by a man influenced by Lovecraft.
So far, this is a great, lovecraftian set of short stories.
This is horror as in murder of teenagers type horror at least from the story I read The Fairground Horror this isfantasy type horror, with a very wild, imaginative and paranormal dimension Lumley also takes time to establish context and some character background before things get very horrific you have to give the book time and you have to want to take in the story it s not really a quick thrill.
Lumley has other short story collections including Fruiting Bodies and other Fungi The Whisperer and other Voices.
