And I fancy I’m but one of many’ Brian Lumley.

Lovecraft’s tales of the tentacled Elder God Cthulhu and his pantheon of alien deities were initially written for the pulp magazines of the 1920s and ’30s. These astonishing tales blend elements of horror and science fiction and are as powerful today as they were when they initially appeared. And I fancy I’m but one of many’ Brian Lumley. The thing that particularly drew me to Lovecraft as a young and innocent child was the way his stories and the concepts in them would - in a genuinely eerie way - activate the creative machinery in my head’ Gahan Wilson. One of the twentieth century’s most original writers’ Arthur C. Clarke.

In a sense, Lovecraft’s entire adult oeuvre is comprised of tales of cosmic wonder, but over the last ten years of his life, when he began to abandon Dunsanian exoticism and New England black magic and to seek for subject matter the mysterious abysses of outer space, he achieved a body of work to which has been posthumously applied the term Cthulhu.

I finished Tales Of The Lovecraft Mythos about a month ago and wanted to write a quick review.

I think this is one of the better horror anthologies out there.
It has quite a few very good stories in it - notably 'The Seven Geases' (loved it! plan to read it again), 'The Guardian Of The Book' and to my astonishment 'Spawn Of The Green Abyss'. When I first saw the title of that story, I laughed in sarcasm at how stupid I knew it was going to be. However, campy and unlikely as the story is, I really enjoyed it alot. It was written by C. Hall Thompson, whom I understand did not write all that much in the weird fiction vein, but I sure wish he had written more because I really liked this story very much! I was also impressed with 'The Guardian Of The Book' - a very strange, but satisfying story. There were two or three duds in the anthology, in my opinion. Stories that really did nothing for me, but on the whole, I would highly recommend this anthology. It was a pleasure to read if you like these kind of stories.

While H.P.Lovecraft retains his premium slot among those who shaped the 20th Century horror writing and have been influencing the trends even today, his writing is something that we tend to approach warily. He specialised in too much of everything: words, descriptions of the "unspeakable", helplessness of the protagonists despite all the arcane knowledge they possess, etc., except in plot and action. The jewels in this book are blasphemously superior to those works despite being located in the mythos created by Lovecraft himself. Most of these stories are tautly paced,with credible characters often working against a realistic background, with the antagonists being sufficiently horrifying without being vague. Highly recommended.

It's not often that you find a book that you can say I enjoyed every story wriiren. However this book is the one. True some were better then others ,but they all were good and fast reading. Each one has its own classic ending and of course it's own characters. My two favorites were the Seven Geasus and Black Pharaoh . I highly recommend this book if you are a HP fan or Mythos fan.

This is an anthology; some of the stories are excellent, some are not. I only found one that I wish I had not bothered to read. All-in-all, a good book and a good read.

Well, most people out there already put it down about this book contents.

I would say that you'll find some fine work in the book, and I'm certainly refering to "The Seven Geases" by Clark Ashton Smith. IMO the very best tale in the book and just for this story, I would have buy the book. It's a pure gem!

After that we have good reads for most of the book and some few poor stories. Sorry R.E.Howard fans, but his 2 tales are just plainly boring... So if you can make it out past the first 2 stories, you'll end up liking this anthology.

Although I'm a pretty big Lovecraft fan, and of other authors that contributed to his mythos, I actually hadn't read most of these. While some are fairly well known members of the Lovecraft "Circle" ( a group of his friends and writings correspondents), most either are lesser known ones, or I guess weren't.

It's starts off with two by Robert Howard, both commonly anthologized, but in a twist, the ending is different in this version ("Fire of Asshurbanipal").

There are a couple tales by Henry Kuttner, a famous author in his own right, who sadly doesn't have much in print any more.

Some August Derleth stuff, which like most of his work, almost gets it right. He has nice ideas, but fails to capitalize on them. For instance, the story introducing the Tcho-Tcho. But the ending of it was just one of those Deus Machine things, almost literally.

You also get to read the original version of a story HPL rewrote (E. Hoffman Price's story, The Lord of Illusion). It's quite different, not as good, but not bad, either.

In truth, most of the stories aren't that well written, mostly for a Lovecraft fan that just has to read everything related to his work. But a couple were quite good. The Aquarium by Carl Jacobi is both amusing and creepy at the same time. So many authors try to parody Lovecraft but it comes off as either tacky or just dumb (the last two stories in the book fall prey to that). But this was well done.

And the longest tale in the book, "The Spawn of the Green Abyss". It doesn't seem to be overtly Lovecraftian, except perhaps something of a melding of the traditional myths about mermen and sirens with that of the Deep Ones (though it's not explicit). Very much a heart wrenching tale and captures I think the spirit of the Deep Ones (even though it wasn't exactly them) better than any of the explicit Deep One stories I've read.

Good antholgy
The "Tales of the Lovecraft Mythos" collection compiles a series of stories that blend in well with the world that H. P. Lovecraft created.
