Good but a very typing errors,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Necronomicon: The Best Weird Tales of H.P. Lovecraft: The Best Weird Fiction of H.P. Lovecraft (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Hardcover)
This is very good and everything Lovecraftian is here. The stories are well written and keep me interested. They are also very short which is nice if you want something to read before bed but hate leaving a story half finished.
I have only three complaints and they are all very minor.
1. Lovecraftian stories are very similar. A man goes to a place, finds an unspeakable evil and goes mad. It can get rather boring in such a long volume but I am overgeneralising and this really does simplify it. Just be aware that every story isn't radically different from the next, but that isn't always a bad thing.
2. The drawings don't always seem connected to the story. I know it seems a weird gripe but with such wonderful art and excellently written drama it would put the icing on the cake to have an artistic impression of the scene I just read.
3. There are errors. This is a very large book clearly written over decades of Lovecraft's career and edited by multiple editors and brought together from lots of places. There are minor typos here and there which can be irritating but it is rarely more than two per story (that being a word with a letter missing at most) and never are you unable to understand what Lovecraft is saying.
This is an excellent tome of Lovecraft's works and very much worth getting for the price.
