    "Mixed bag"

    A collection of short stories and novellas which sometimes hold one's attention, but often does not. People either hate or love Lovecraft and this might depend on which style of his they first read. Lovecraft when imitating Poe often does well, but when his style turns to the anachronistic and antiquarian in an effort to suggest the horror of forgotten worlds the reader gets lost. The tales of Carter's dream travels I found particularly hard to follow. When Lovecraft allows the plot to evoke terror he's great, but he is also one of those pulp writers who fall back on a series of stock adjectives and adverbs in order to insist that what we are reading should really scare us. A classic error of novice writers and as we yawn we think Lovecraft ought to know better.
