Each of the stories within are well written and edited. Some will appeal more to some readers while others will appeal to the rest, but all the stories are enjoyable reads making this a great collection. I believe even those who have not read much, or any, Lovecraft will find this to be well worthwhile to spend the time reading. There is just the right amount of creepy in each segment. I liked the intro very much as it gives perspective and enlightenment for all ranks of readers. A free copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest unbiased review. This in no way influenced my opinion.
