The Mammoth Book of Cthulhu by Paula Guran
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Collections of stories by a variety of authors typically only have one or two that stick out for me. This is a good thing though, as different readers look for different things in their reads. Collections can provide a bit of exposure for a new author. I love the fantasy genre and I’ve enjoyed a few of Lovecrafts stories so I had a good idea what to expect with this collection. Some stories stood out as better crafted and developed than others and a few I just couldn’t finish. It’s my personal opinion that the stories would have worked out better without adding Lovecraftian names and places and just kept the feel. Overall, it’s an interesting collection with a few promising authors. I received an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion and review, which may or may not mirror your own.
