Re: Cthulhu/Lovecraft Mythos

I'll have to pick this one up as well. I have read a few of those tales, including Fane of the Black Pharoah which is a great read.

I recently picked up a similar compilation, The Book of Cthulhu II. So far I've only read "Sticks," by Karl Wagner, and "Hand of Glory," by Laird Baron and both were excellent.

Ha, you know it's going to be good when every short story title included sounds like the name of an adventure modulehttp://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png
