All right, perhaps the 5 stars is a little generous as this is not Lovecraft's best and is fatally flawed in its strange meandering structure that demands everything stop for an extended history lesson halfway through, but the imagination on display is nothing short of astonishing. The references to other texts and the attempt to weave the disparate parts of the mythology he had created into a unifying whole make this essential for fans. And that is the driving force behind this review. All I can add is that Naxos have done their usual top-notch job and William Roberts's intense reading perfectly compliments the insanity so often writ large by Lovecraft. If you are a fan, you will love this. And if you are not, you won't be reading this review anyway.
