My first foray into HP Lovecraft. Writing style is something to get use to and the vocabulary is advanced. Once I got past the first few stories things started to flow. Loved the stories. This is not your blood and guts horror, its cleaner and more descriptive. Definitely creepy and the imagination behind the stories is great. Lovecraft builds a lot of the stories around a small town in New England that leaves an air of melancholy. I'm going to read the Dream Cycle next.
