Well, at least Howard liked The Black Stone.
Coming to think of it, it may be due to the translation I read. My first encounter with Lovecraft were also German versions and those were butchery! Even the titles sound stupid and I didn `t understand why so many people like that stuff until I got my hands on original texts. Perhaps I should give Robert E. another shot and just may be this toad monster thing will turn out into something less embarassing...
As an adult my taste has evolved (thank deity of your choice) and now I just want James Boon to hurry up and get get GET Charles Boone already.
That `s exactly what I liked about the story. The slow pace comfy creepiness makes me whish I had a fireplace.
