5.0 out of 5 stars Lovecraftian Excellence, 11 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead But Dreaming (Paperback)
The interest in H.P. Lovecraft and his work has exploded over the past couple of decades with many publishers producing anthologies inspired by his creations. The quality of these has varied significantly but "Dead But Dreaming" by Miskatonic River Press is head and shoulders above the crowd. It is an absolute top notch collection of short stories!

A lot of the Lovecraftian stories that I have read just don't have that sense of unease and dread. One of the main features of Lovecraft's writing was the sense of man being but a grain of sand in the infinite cosmos, at the mercy of intelligences and forces far superior to our own limited experiences. This collection of 15 stories addresses that and also does what any good horror story should do, scares the crap out of you.

I would urge you to buy this and "Dead But Dreaming 2" if you have the money. They are very worthy investments of your time and attention and Miskatonic River Press are definitely a small press publisher to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection of cosmic horror tales, 3 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead But Dreaming (Paperback)
Keeping away from the most overused clichés of Lovecraftian fiction, the tales in this volume get back the original horror + sense of awe recipe which gave its grandeur to HPL's tales. Refreshing, specially after the tons of crap that have been perpetrated in Cthulhu's name.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good stories, surprisingly fresh and thoughtful, 10 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead But Dreaming (Paperback)
Been a Mythos fan for years. This is not Lovecraft, but a darn good imitation of his writing. Good stories throughout. One or two . . . sort of bored me but other than those two, they were in the first part of the book, the book is good.
