Um es sofort zu sagen: Das halbe Sternchen gibt es für das recht ansprechende Umschlagmotiv des Buches. Ansonsten ist dieses Machwerk der papiergewordene Alptraum eines Sammlers, der auf Vollständigkeit aus ist. Was für ein Sch...! Was für ein Schrott! Was für eine Ansammlung von Schwachsinn! Wenn ich schon lese, das Cthulhu auf seiner Reise zur Erde unterwegs mal eben drei Kinder zeugte, die dann auch zur Erde kamen, dreht sich mir der Magen um. Ein Buch, das für mich ganz klar in den Giftschrank gehört und da auch bleiben soll. Nur für Sammler interessant - und dann auch nur, wenn sie es nicht lesen wollen. ( )

The late Lin Carter was the driving force behind the famous Ballantine Adult Fantasy Series of the 1970's. He was also a prolific writer and anthologist of horror and fantasy with over eighty titles to his credit, including Lovecraft: A Look at the Cthulhu Mythos. Carter's tales of mythos horror are loving tributes to H. P. Lovecraft's "revision" tales and to August Derleth's stories of Hastur and the R'lyeh Text. Most of these stories were published many years ago in various anthologies and fanzines and have been unavailable for some time. This is the first collection of Carter's Mythos tales. This Call of Cthulhu Fiction anthology includes his intended novel The Terror Out of Time.… (more)
