Waking Up Screaming: Haunting Tales of Terror

Waking Up Screaming: Haunting Tales of Terror - H.P. Lovecraft, Denise L. Fitzer There are 16 "short" stories from H.P. Lovecraft. Well, 15 short stories and one 120+ page story that I just couldn't get through, no matter how much I tried.

What I liked:
Cool Air
The Terrible Old Man
Beyond the Wall of Sleep
The Shadow Over Innsmouth
Herbert West - Reanimator
Arthur Jermyn
The Moon-Bog
Dagon

What I didn't like:
The Hound, The Lurking Fear, and The Unnameable were all basically the same "monster" story told in three different ways.

The White Ship was just a simple morality story. I totally wasn't expecting that.

The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, the aforementioned 120+ page snoozer. WAY too much time on the ancestor of CDW, with absolutely nothing going on.
