Cthulhu Tales Omnibus: Madness

Just awful. Various tales about H. P. Lovecraft's mythological inventions ("Yog-Sothothery" as he jokingly called it) fail to capture his idea of truly alien, mind-shattering realities. Instead they are slapped together cute or "clever" horror stories. Only Brian Augustyn comes close to Lovecraft's ideal even if I don't think his story was very good. Shane Oakley's story was the best; ironic, because it didn't deal so much with a greater, unknowable terror, but did integrate such horrors into a humanistic tale.
