Review: A Mountain Walked: Great Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos

A Mountain Walked: Great Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos
A Mountain Walked: Great Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos by S.T. Joshi

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a large collection of stories either directly related to the Cthulhu mythos or related closely enough to not really have any true difference.
Like most collections there are ones I really liked and others which I quickly flipped through because they just weren’t my cup of ichor.
It’s overall a good collection. I utterly LOVED the Neil Gaiman story. The actual story was a bit disjointed but the description and evocative prose he used shows why Neil is a master storyteller.
Another one, Hungry…Rats was a really weird tale but the way it was written was riveting. It just pulls you along increasing your tension and forcing you to avalanche forward with the words.
Check it out. It’s a good read if you’re a fan of the mythos.
