5.0 out of 5 stars Warning - Not As Amazon Promised, 23 July 2011
I have only relatively recently delved into Lovecraft, thanks to the wonderful Necronomicon. The quality of the writing in this volume surely doesn't need to be remarked on - if you're a Lovecraft fan, a fan of horror, of the weird, the fantastic, or just some of the best of modern writing, you need to read this.

However, the collection is approximately three hundred pages shorter than this website promises at the time of writing (this review will be deleted if the real number of pages is uploaded of course). This led to a bit of disappointment for me, which I hope others can avoid. The review is still five stars because I really don't want anyone to think the stories are of a lesser quality, or in any way turn off people from reading the Eldritch Tales. I just want people to now know what they're buying; a slightly shorter slice of the work of Lovecraft.
