Well,I was not pleased.
Feb 06, R. While there are onnsmouth few good stories in the bunch, the most seem repetitive with the same themes and plots. Open Preview See a Problem?
With the latter I do not just mean Lovecraft himself but also earlier works which inspired the great master himself, such as The King In Yellow by Robert Chambers Which is where Hastur and the King in Yellow comes from. I got through three stories dd they were all basically the same.
The Watchers Out of Time by H.P. Lovecraft
My other favorites would have been the somewhat uneven “Wentworth’s Day” and the needed-a-slightly-different-punch “The Ancestor” which is basically the story of Altered States but less New Agey. For die-hard fans of the Lovecraft innwmouth there are arcilka few treats, but generally speaking all of these stories are basically Lovecraft Pastiche.
This is one ed those books where the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. The last thing that made my skin c Looking at this connection, a couple of things stand out.
If you have a chance to read this book, and you like Mythos stories by the likes of Brian Lumley and Ramsey Campbell, I’d say give it a try. I liked the atmosphere Derleth tried to build, but the stories just didn’t deliver.
Read the real thing instead, easily found in the three Joshi-edited Lovecraft volumes issued by Penguin Classics. Nevermind that the first of these ta The true title of this anthology should be “Tales written by August Derleth based on ideas thrown away by H. Most of these stories are variations on that theme, and I like the creepy rural setting, so I enjoyed this book despite the redundancy.
But the stories in the first half all follow a similar sort of line, with the big reveal kn the italicized last paragraph which Lovecraft used to great effect in The Outsider, e. However, there is one thing that fe need to know about this book: And it has your typical Lovecraft “run for the hills because the boogie man is loose!

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. No trivia or quizzes yet.
Sin embargo, Derleth diferencia a estos seres en buenos y malos, como si realmente les importasen los pobres humanos, y se centra demasiado en etiquetarlos.

Get to Know Us. Keep in mind that this review is written by a person who enjoys some of Lovecraft’s stories, but is not a die hard ‘fan’. Weird stuff happens, and a paragraph written entirely in italics states some profound, revelation about the evil relative or house. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
Looking at this connection, a couple of things stand out. It’s hard to tell what’s Lovecraft’s and what’s Derleth’s but I would say Lovecraft fans could live without this collection and not be the worse for it.
Too many of the stories are set in Dunwich and even if they are set elsewhere, many references to the Whateleys and ‘The Dunwich Horror’ exist within.

Frog people, bad ancestral blood, researches researching the wrongest shit possible and paying for it, etc. Derleth gets props for his work as a publisher and editor, and people mumble vaguely about his ‘regional fiction’ having its merits. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Because, to be honest, the quality is no where near Lovecraft’s original work. Just cannot get into Lovecraft’s world. And it’s true that Derleth kind of changed up the Mythos a little, codified it, so to speak, and maybe made it easier to understand and at the same time less creepy, but if we just ignore the fact innsmouh we bought this book because of Lovecraft, I innsmoutth all the stories in this book are very, very good.
I liked the “Dunwich Horror” sequel: A companion to Lovecraft’s antiquary arxilla of horror, but certainly no substitute. Derleth applied a bizarre almost alchemical ‘Elemental’ nature to the Great Old Ones where none existed as Lovecraft created them, he also made them “evil” rather than simply indifferent to humanity.

Dec 29, Andy rated it liked it. For me I find that he over-uses and re-hashes too many of Lovecraft’s ideas, settings, and characters. Be the first to ask a question about The Watchers Out of Time.
His earlier Dunsany-influenced fiction innsmoutg not have reflected the fully-formed Lovecraftian conception of Cosmic Horror, but they had many wonderful turns of phrase and fancy.
