Tales of the Lovecraft Mythos review ¹ 103 When H P Lovecraft first introduced his macabre universe in the pages of Weird Tales magazine the response was electrifying Gifted writers among them his closest peers added sinister new elements to the fear drenched landscape Here are some of the most famous original stories from the pulp era that played a pivotal role in reflecting the master’s dark vision  FANE OF THE BLACK PHARAOH by Robert Bloch A man obsessed with unearthing dark secrets succumbs to the lure of the forbiddenBELLS OF HORROR by. In the introduction to this book Robert M Price notes that he as editor put together this book to assemble the stories in which certain important Mythos names or items are either first mentioned or most fully explained by the author who created them xx The authors of these stories are part of the first wave of Lovecraft influenced writers and some of these stories have never found their way into modern anthologiesThe contents list with a denoting my favorites1 The Thing on the Roof by Robert E Howard A man who finds the first edition of Von Juntz s Nameless Cults leads a scholar to a temple in an old Honduras Jungle where you just know something bad is going to happen2 The Fire of Asshurbanipal by Robert E Howard The discovery of a mythical ancient city awakes an ancient evil in the Arabian desert3The Seven Geases by Clark Ashton Smith to be honest I have another collection or two by CAS so I didn t read this one in anticipation of reading it another time4 Fane of the Black Pharaoh by Robert Bloch In which a man s future is written in stone literally and in which he is forced to see it Awesome story5 The Invaders by Henry Kuttner Set north of Santa Barbara CA the story tells of a man who calls in his friends after he lets loose something terrible Very well written I do enjoy a good Kuttner story6 Bells of Horror by Henry Kuttner Bells long forgotten and buried by Father Junipero Serra during the Spanish mission days in California are found again with deadly results7 The Thing That Walked on the Wind by August Derleth Okay I liked this one in which a member of the RCMP reports finding 3 bodies in the snow that had apparently fallen out of the sky 2 are still alive and one dead This one was much better than8 Ithaua by August Derleth featuring strange events in the cold north This one is based on belief in the Wendigo see the story by Algernon Blackwood and deals with what happens when native worship of the Wendigo here called Ithaua is interrupted This one was just okay9 The Lair of the Star Spawn by August Derleth Mark Shorer This one gives explanation to how things like Cthulhu etc came to earth at one time there was a conflict between The Elder Gods and The Great Old Ones and the latter were imprisoned not only here but in other dimensions in faraway star systems A lot of Derleth s ideas which came down through other mythos writers started here The story focuses on Eric Marsh who is forced to wander through Burma ending up somehow in the ancient city of Alaozar where he is co opted in a mission to save the earth10 The Lord of Illusion by E Hoffmann Price a riff on HPL s story of Randolph Carter I did not like this one at all Don t read this unless you ve read HPL s original first11 The Warder of Knowledge by Richard F SearightDecent short story re a scientist who translates the Eltdown Shards ancient writings which probably were best left alone Okay not great12The Scourge of B Moth by Bertram Russell I really liked this one but I m a sucker for stories which have insane asylums as their setting Here in a twist a psychiatrist shows symptoms of insanity while treating an inmate who suffers from delusions I really liked this one13 The House of the Worm by Mearle Prout another good one in which two men know the truth behind a mysterious plague which spreads out into civilization from a dark forest14 Spawn of the Green Abyss by C Hall Thompson You can see here some traces of HPL s Shadows Over Innsmouth but overall it could stand on its own without having to be classified under mythos However I really liked it because I am a huge fan of this kind of pulpy stuff A doctor James Arkwright seeks solitude on the New Jersey coast and finds a young and beautiful woman whose father he treats for a mysterious illness Arkwright and his wife Cassandra go along fine for a while and then things start to go haywire Just a fun book that raised the hairs on the back of my neck a bit15 The Guardian of the Book by Henry Hasse another fun read in which a man is prompted to accept a book that he didn t really want then has second thoughts about actually reading it when he finds out its history16 The Abyss by Robert A W Lowndes A suspicious young man hypnotizes another with deadly conseuences This one was okay17 Music of the Stars by Duane W Rimel A pianist decides to write and play music that can cause madness sadly for him he does it all too well18 The Auarium by Carl Jacobi This was another fun one in which two women share a rented home wherein lies a funky auarium its former owner was a conchologist This one was fun but you see it coming a mile off19 The Horror Out of Lovecraft by Donald A Wolheim Kind of an odd story but interesting re a man who dabbles in things he ought not to have with devastating results20 To Arkham and the Stars by Fritz Leiber A fun tongue in cheek homage to HPL set in Arkham MassOverall a fun collection featuring the pre edited versions of short stories by the first round of Lovecraft imitators As with all anthologies some stories are excellent some are okay and some not so hotReaders who enjoy pulp fiction or Mythos type stories would be very happy with this book My advice do read HPL first or you re going to be a bit lost The Book of Robert E Howard Book 1 response was electrifying Gifted writers among them his closest peers added

Tales of the Lovecraft Mythos review ¹ 103 Henry Kuttner Infernal chimes ring the promise of dementia and mutilationTHE FIRE OF ASSHURBANIPAL by Robert E Howard In the burning Afghan desert a young American unleashes an ancient curseTHE ABYSS by Robert A W Lowndes A hypnotized man finds himself in an alternate universe trapped on a high wire between life and death  AND SIXTEEN MORE TALES OF ICY TERROR   THE THING ON THE ROOF by Robert E Howard THE SEVEN GEASES by Clark Ashton Smith THE INVADERS by Henry Kuttner THE THING THAT WALKED ON THE WI. This book presents some of the better pulp era HP Lovecraft influenced writers There are no stories by Lovecraft in the book as such I would not recommend this book to anyone who had not read at least some Lovecraft first It is good to remember that this is stuff written for the pulps so the writing is all over the place Price does pick some of the better stories although there is inexplicably two stories by August Derleth who despite being the single person who preserved Lovecraft s name and writing after his death is probably the weakest writer of Mythos influenced stories They are fortunately briefThe stories vary from simple pastiche to some decent original stories although all are influenced by Lovecraft somehow The better stories actually avoid too overt a mention of the Lovecraft Mythos In general the endings are telegraphed pretty early so don t expect any Twilight Zone twists at the end unless you are totally unfamiliar with Lovecraft and the Mythos Expect a lot of plot holes and simply outrageously inexplicable behavior so suspension of disbelief is going to be de riguerI had fun with the book and would recommend recommend it for anyone who wants another taste of pulp era Lovecraft Mythos Read it in short bursts so the stories don t seem too similar
