Despite getting the impression from all the pre publishing hypes and reviews that this book would contain the longer stories of Cthulhu Mythos by Brian Lumley actual reading of the stories resulted in me being pleasantly surprised The stories in this book are properly describable as Lovecraftian since they succed in invoking the feeling of cosmic horror without going through the hackneyed themes words and damnable incantations The best story in this book is undoubtedly The Taint with its haunting narrative and the chiller ending Lovers of Cthulhu mythos should lap this book up because after a long time such a fresh voice has been heard in the venerable hall made slimy by incompetents and frauds

The Taint and Other Novellas Read ↠ 106 Lume contains the very best of Brian Lumley's Mythos novellas   Table of ContentsIntroductionThe Horror at Oa. A rather split compilation of several of Lumley s novellas within the scope of the Cycle of Cthulhu Myth About half of them are pure pastiche channeling Lovecraft so precisely that I thought I might have been reading August Derleth That said Lumley is a great writer and one of my favorite in the field so he s a pleasure to read even when the pastiche prose are purple Lumley s introductions to each novella exclusive to this gorgeous Subterranean Press edition help soften the blow a bit in their self deprecating humor and earnestness Most of the pastiche stories were written 35 40 years ago and represented some of Lumley s earliest published works so one can t fault him too fiercely if at all As much pulpy fun as it was to read the handful of Lovecraft homages the real joy comes in the later novellas also included here especially The Taint and Born of the Winds Clearly written after his style had matured somewhat these tales are uniue in character and content if not necessarily in setting and were a real pleasure to encounter I ve been a fan of Lumley s since reading his Necroscope novels some years ago but had had very little exposure to his Mythos Cycle stories This was a pretty good collection with which to rectify that omission and the brief time it took me to read them was well spent A solid comp with some slight lows a lot of midlines and a couple of very high highs Four stars for fans of Lumley or the Mythos probably far less than that for anyone else
