    2. Odli an izbor Lavkraftovih pri a objedinjenih na jednom mestu, a moram pomenuti i fantasti an dizajn same knjige, u izdanju Orfelina, koji je za titni znak edicije Poetika strave.Svaka od ovih pri a je podsetnik da stvari nikada nisu onakve kakvim nam se ine na prvi pogled i dvojaka opomena da nikoga i ni ta ne uzimamo zdravo za gotovo i da, ta god da uradimo i koliko god da poku avamo da predvidimo rasplet doga aja, tu igru gubimo.Pored klasika apta u tami , izdvojila bih pri e Hladan vazduh i [...]

    3. Please note This novella is included in The Complete Works of H.P Lovecraft, which can be downloaded for free from the CthulhuChick website Links where formatting is allowed Synopsis An Arkham university professor is contacted by a farmer living in a remote part of Vermont, who claims to have evidence of aliens living in the hills and mining a mysterious metal After visiting, the professor becomes alarmed at the mysterious change in the behavior of the farmer, including his assertion that the al [...]

    4. A wonderfully eerie and creepy tale of strange goings on in the mountains of Vermont Strange beings alien are visiting the mountains for some kind of mineral and trying to stop investigations by locals and a folklore professor from Boston Loved this story for its atmospherics and science fiction terror.

    5. Not really scary, but sort of creepy and weirdly engaging I got a kick out of what must be one of the earlier instances of the still functioning brain in a jar trope, and also from the thrill that the discovery of Pluto obviously generated More sci fi than horror, which was fine with me 3 1 2 stars, rounded up by coin flip.

    6. Read as part of the Chaos Reading Emergency Group Read for True Detective The Yellow King So far, this is the creepiest of all the Lovecraft stories I ve read There were genuine goosebumps involved I wish I had the time right now to read all of the Cthulhu mythos stories This was a great story, and certainly my favourite Lovecraft to date What a pity the audiobook version I listened to had a narrator with such poor English language skills I couldn t believe it every word with three syllables or [...]

    7. This is a collection of classic Lovecraft short stories I read a while back What I love about him, is how creepy he can make everything seem, the sense of dread and foreboding that his thick prose can create This guy wrote decades ago, but his stuff can still give me nightmares I especially like how, it s not about gore, or violence, or murders, or the kind of stuff modern slasher horror is about Lovecraft s stories about about humanity realizing how tiny and frail it is, encountering powerful c [...]

    8. My favorite Lovecraft tale because this takes place in Vermont Not only that, one of the few writers I feel that actually gets Vermont and doesn t have a tourist feel Oddly, I felt right at home reading this story I mean, it mentions the Rutland Herald a local paper I see daily I also like this one because it was creepy Not really a fan of horror writing, but Lovecraft hits the spot.

    9. I either chose the worst or best circumstances to read this in preparation for a talk at my library by a Lovecraft scholar about H.P Lovecraft s 1927 and 1928 visits to Windham county in southern VT after a particularly devastating flood The Whisperer in the Darkness is the result of those visits The Cthulu mythos had already been developed, as well as most of Lovecraft s story tactics, but there is an authentic old Yankee chill throughout that is pure Vermon We have no hard T sounds at the end [...]

    10. I am going to write something that may ban me from the esteem of many genre readers for life So be it, I gotta say this Lovecraft was not a good writer.As evidence of this, I give you one of his most popular stories, At the Mountains of Madness The story starts off great with a narrative told in a cautious tone the descriptions of arctic exploration the ensuing discoveries that hint at great and awesome things I really dug these ideas and the subsequent violence that suggests something truly wro [...]

    11. It s strange to have someone so verbose so copiously use the phrase terrible beyond description.Here is how I would rate the stories in this book Dagon 3 10The Nameless City 1 10The Hound 2 10The Festival 3 10The Call of Cthulhu 4 10The Case of Charles Dexter Ward 2 10The Dunwich Horror 7 10The Whisperer in Darkness 5 10At the Mountains of Madness 8 10I was pretty much ready to give up on this book until I got to The Dunwich Horror That story, and the two that followed it were pretty entertainin [...]

    12. This story was written shortly after the discovery of Pluto, and Lovecraft endearingly wasted no time pinning down the new planet s identity to Yuggoth, home of The Elder Ones There are some seriously mindbending celestial phenomena proposed here, part of what makes Lovecraft so unique and appealing to me It is also yet another great dark, brooding, suspenseful tale where he reveals and holds back just enough to leave you with that delicious signature flavour of fear of the unknown.

    13. My first taste of the great Horror master of the early twentieth century Lovecraft is an inescapable name in literature Even someone who has never read any of his work has heard the name Ctulhu mentioned at some point in time Half the tabletop games seem to be getting a Ctulhu edition these days and then I m not even mentioning the games made about the Ctulhu mythos, one of which I own myself which is quite good This collection of short stories serves as a very good intro I think and it would pr [...]

    14. Note r elle 3.5 J arrondis par le haut car je suis une personne positive.Je croyais r ellement adorer Lovecraft, que l on d finit souvent comme le ma tre de l horreur, et je dois admettre avoir t un peu d u Oui, la trame narrative, bien que convenue, est tr s int ressante Le personnage principal, professeur de litt rature passionn par les l gendes et les mythes, se lance aux trousses d une myst rieuse cr ature qui aurait t aper ue dans les montagnes sombres du Vermont, pour finalement y d couvri [...]

    15. 4.5Otro de los relatos de Lovecraft, donde aparecen seres de otros mundos Es horror y ciencia ficci n en estado puro.

    16. E l vamos n s com a fixa o de Lovecraft por criaturas subterr neas aparentemente aqu ticas N o que eu tenha algo a reclamar, considerando que j comentei sobre Um Sussurro nas Trevas antes e, poca, j tinha impress o de ser um dos melhores contos do autor.Albert Wilmarth come a como um cientista c tico, um especialista em folclore ent o convidado pelo tamb m erudito Henry Akeley a Vermont onde enchentes levaram ao aparecimento de estranhas criaturas com corpos crust ceos, com grandes pares de barb [...]

    17. No s porque no hab a le do m s de Lovecraft, con lo tanto que me gusta el g nero weird Por cierto, recordaba haber le do At the Mountains of Madness hace unos a os pero hab a olvidado por completo que The Dunwitch Horror viene en The Weird A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories hasta que iba a la mitad Para otros que igual vayan empezando con Lovecraft, ste es un buen punto de partida Incluye Dagon, The Nameless City, The Hound, The Festival, The Call of Cthulhu, The Case of Charles Dexter War [...]

    18. Terrifying, Horrifying, Mysterious and Lovecraftian Just a few words to describe Lovecraft s tale, both his short and slightly longer ones.The Whisperer in Darkness is the first of four volumes of books, in which holds a mixture of Lovecraft s stories Volume one holds the likes of The call of the Cthulha , The Dunwhich horror , and The case of Charles Dexter Ward Howard Phillips Lovecraft is legendary for his horror writings His name is one often spoke beside those of Poe, Hitchcock and Dunsany [...]

    19. This is a book of collected short stories Lovecraft s tales of mystery and the supernatural , and although I quite liked the three that I read, I didn t really feel the need to read any of them, if you know what I mean A bit samey Might read one or two every so often when I feel like a dose of hellish black mires, troubled and dream infested sleep, the distant baying of gigantic hounds and ruined and nameless cities PS If trying to pretend have read Lovecraft at parties, many of his stories fea [...]

    20. El que susurra en la oscuridad es una historia ambientada en la Nueva Inglaterra rural, en la que, despu s de unas inundaciones aparecen arrastrados por la riada, unos extra os cuerpos de forma indefinida Esto conduce a una investigaci n sobre su origen y a un intercambio de correspondencia entre el narrador y un investigador que poco a poco va desentra ando pistas sobre los misteriosos seres.Una novela corta, precisa y bastante din mica con un final algo apresurado pero que no defrauda y con mo [...]

    21. I like horror, fantasy and sci fi and thought I should give some Lovecraft a go as he keeps popping up as the daddy of it all Unfortunately I couldn t get into this at all.He comes up with some good scenarios and many of the stories start promisingly enough but then the short ones just end with no real conclusion and the long ones drag and drag until it is a struggle just to get to the end There is almost no dialog, very few characters and the writing style is inconsistent and maybe even a littl [...]

    22. Very unique writing style in horror genre, I must say This was a very special experience for me His works are great and deep, butI can t say I didn t like it Some short stories are very very good and unique, and some of them ARE unique but not my taste at all His stories are very dark, metaphorical and dimensional based on his own fears and hates Only if you approach completely open mind, you can enjoy in his stories Also, I think you need to know his biography first so you can understand his wr [...]

    23. Vrlo dobra zbirka, koja e biti zanimljiva kako onima koji su ve imali priliku da itaju Lavkraftova dela, tako i onima koji se tek upoznaju sa ovim piscem Po kvalitetu bih posebno izdvojio pri e apta u tami i U as u etvrti Red Huk Vrebaju i strah je jedina pri a koja, po mom mi ljenju, ne uspeva da dostigne nivo ostalih Mislim da joj ni Ognjanoivi ev prevod ne ini uslugu, jer je na trenutke jezik krajnje rogobatan Me utim, to je mala zamerka, koja ne uti e previ e na kona ni utisak apta u tami je [...]

    24. Odli an skup Lavkraftovih prica Neke pri e su malo te e za itanje zbog prevoda koji nije ba sjajan, ali to nikako ne smanjuje utisak koji je knjiga ostavila na mene Retko koji horor romani mogu da unesu ovoliko jeze i strepnje koliko Lavkraft, to je u najbolje opisano u pri ama Sapta u tami, Vrebaju i strah malo te a za itanje zbog, po meni lo eg prevoda , Neizrecivo, Ljubav prema mrtvima.

    25. The best part about this collection is its efforts to create continuity between stories events and people from the first few entries are referenced in later ones, and it creates a nice beginner s sense of the universe that Lovecraft created.
