Publisher's Summary

Introduction by Ronald Malfi

From Brett J. Talley, the master of Lovecraftian terror, comes thirteen tales of the dark forces that lurk just beyond man's understanding.

A scientist who opens a door between dimensions. A creature that devours the dead in World War I's no man's land. A fiddler who can bring forth the gods of old. These are but a few of the horrors retold in The Fiddle is the Devil's Instrument and Other Forbidden Knowledge.

Read them if you must but do not forget: there are some things mankind was never meant to know.

very well done

Actually better than expected, pacing was good and didn't feel tedious. Story was engaging. Would recommend.

Good, but full of old material.

It was good, but almost half the stories were excerpts from Talley's other books, which was disappointing.

Its good, but...

The stories overall were not bad, the only thing that did get me is I have heard one or two of them in other places or anthologies, ( I don't like repeats). The narration was good, the tone of the voice could be dry in spots but it wasn't terrible and I have heard other stories by the same person and enjoyed them. Over all this is a good listen.

Awful narration, toneless and dull.

These stories seem incomplete and narration was terrible. Wouldn't read this book again, sorry to say.
