I could not fail to get this as an ardent Lovecraft reader and a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes.
The cover art does prepare you for a pulpy roam through a collection of Mythos encounters. They are occassionally mechanical. There are a few 'oh dear' moments and these are stories to be taken individually. It is a bit of a shame that there isn't a consistent plotline linking all the stories, it would have been so nice if there could have been some collaboration with each story providing a further glimpse to a deeper mystery.
I really enjoyed the atmosphere and did find myself immersed in each. The writers all did an excellent job in my opinion. I know i will read this again and am very glad i bought this. Infact, i bought copies for two friends for New Year presents and hope they enjoy them as much as i did.
