Next up for audio... looks intriguing and I am really getting into a mystery crime fiction mood.

A collection of works loosely themed around HPL's “dream cycle.“ Usually more whimsical and less dark than his other works, all tales still contain that typical HPL horror in some degree. Some of the stories are very short, others are novella length. Some are excellent, others mediocre. Overall I enjoyed the collection and would recommend for those who enjoy fantasy as well as horror.

A short and interesting tale narrated from a unique perspective (for HPL). Pretty simple and to the point, but fun nonetheless.

This tale has some excellent elements, but I think it is weakened by the long, overly-detailed descriptions HPL sometimes includes. Usually these relate to describing alien physiology or strange geometry. I like those elements in general, but not when they detract from the plot and become boring. Speaking of the plot, it was interesting and quite good as a horror read. The ending was the best part descriptively, if unsurprising.

This is one of HPL's longer works (a short novel). It shares plot elements with other HPL works but is unique enough to not be boring to someone who has read his other material. Though some parts are a little slow, overall the pacing is good and the element of mystery and rising horror is excellent. I was worried about long, tangential excursuses typical in some of his longer tales, but was pleasantly surprised that there weren't any of note.

This was a unique ramble through HPL's dream cycle material. The plot reads like a tabletop fantasy RPG game (which is very fun)! The atmosphere (HPL's greatest skill, IMO) is wonderful. Unlike some of his longer tales, this one does not include an overly detailed excursus on some facet of cosmic geometry or alien physiology. The whimsical (but also dark) nature of the tale reminds me of Alice in Wonderland, but with a focused plot.
