A few readers got together at Goodreads and joined in a group read of this story. I liked it!
This was not one of Lovecraft's more famous cosmic horror tales, so it was a nice change. HPL's language is always dense and descriptive and this short was no different. It's a style that you either love or hate; I don't believe you can grow to love it, if that makes any sense.
Anyway, this was a short tale, it was fun and adventurous and I'm looking forward to discovering more of Lovecraft's work in the future. Maybe with some of my fellow Goodreaders? I hope so.
