A thin volume of Lovecraft pastiches, some with definite Dunsanian influences. The at times tortured syntax is perhaps also the result of trying to imitate the style of the latter. Mostly set in the Dreamlands as we know them from Lovecraft's The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath.

It's fairly forgettable really, not bad, but certainly not great either. The best of the component tales is the last one, "The Maker of Gods".
