I was looking to get into Lovecraftian fiction and so I picked up this book. I wasn't dissapointed. Aside from the title story, there are sixteen other dark and mysterious gothic works written by the Master of the Macabre himself, ranging from a few pages, to several chapters. From knowing very little about the Lovecraft Mythos, after reading this book I am very well versed in understanding how his gothic, philosophical, entertaining and oftentimes shocking universe fits together. If you have been attracted by the title story and want to know more, then this is for you. My only criticism would be that it doesn't have every story he wrote in it!
