Being a great fan of Cthulhu mythos and dark gods, I was eager to delve into Dark Hall Press's latest collection, and was not disappointed. There area great range of stories here, both stylistically, narratively, and in terms of the ideas they explore. This range is part of makes this collection such a success. Here's my thoughts on a few of the stories I liked in particular:

The Yellow Dust was wonderfully poetic and moving, with an astonishing feel for image and a level of description that mounts up to poetry.

The Unknown was a wonderful sci-fi exploration of human desire, in many ways re-writing the legendary myth of Odysseus and the Siren-songs, with a particularly strong central protagonist and an evocative landscape that feels both psychological and literal.

The Eye of the Beholder was another ingenious story, perhaps the most disturbing of the lot, with a terrifying image at the end and sense of inevitable and inescapable power which truly harks back to Lovecraft's sense of doom facing humanity, but brachylogically scaled down to a personal fate.

These are only three of many awesome stories in this collection - each one offers something unique and thought-provoking. If there is a criticism of this collection, it's that many of the more subversive and adaptive responses to the Cosmic theme come at the beginning, whereas in the second half of the anthology returns to more familiar structures and perhaps more predictable lot-lines.

I'm a big fan of Lovecraft's horror and in particular his Cthulhu mythos. This is a collection of short stories inspired by Lovecraft's range of cosmic horror. This isn't a collection of Cthulhu tales, there's some that are related but also some taking a wider view. I was surprised by the latter ones being more effective than the former.

They're all decent stories although some stood out more than the others. Two stories in particular impressed me. The first tells the story of a world filled with yellow dust and it was a poignant and melancholy story that is superbly written.

The other story that really stood out for me was the closing one. This was the story of cavemen under attack by minions of the elder gods. It was the unusual perspective that attracted me to this one. The fact it was well written helped too of course!

One of the reasons I enjoy this style of horror is the twists in logic and perception which gets me thinking as I read them. On that count this is a fine collection of stories and one for any Lovecraft fans or those looking for something a little different with their horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily earned all five stars. 2 May 2014
By WinterRaven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an excellent collection of short stories written in the tradition of Lovecraft. I found that each one excited my imagination more than the last and I was left wishing for more from all of them. I definitely discovered some new writers to check out, and highly recommend this collection.
4.0 out of 5 stars Strong collection of short stories 4 Sept. 2014
By Jonathan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Generally, the content is very strong. The writers just understand the way that the weird, cosmic horror genre works. When writers who get a genre go to work or start to play, it's a surprisingly quick and engaging read.

If there was something to criticize with the book, it would be the length. I wish there were more than 10 stories as most Lovecraftian anthologies often come with about double the content. Still, you are getting what you paid with high quality and atmospheric cosmic horror. Hopefully, a volume #2 will be in the works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tales From Beyond to Satisfy any Cthulhu Addict 10 Mar. 2014
By William T. Masonis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The mythos lives on (and on and on and on, apparently) in such material as this. Good Old H.P. would be proud; most of these tales take the whole idea and run with it in gratifying ways. The tale with the "interview" with one of the Old Ones is particularly fresh in nature. All, however, run true to form and keep the concept going, to the dark delight of us all.

By Misty Williams - Published on Amazon.com

Free download with some good reads. I suggest this to anyone who likes sic-fi short stories. Reminds me of some from the the 1920's & 30's I read for a class.
3.0 out of 5 stars Overall a good collection however 18 May 2015

Some of the stories are quite well done, but there are others that just fell flat for me. Overall a good collection however.
