    One thought on “Cthulhu Unbound, Volume 2”

    1. Although I'm a huge Lovecraft fan, especially for all things Cthulhu-related, I didn't expect much when going to read the many diverse stories in this collection. I bought this mainly for the Captain Nemo story, "Nemo At R'lyeh" by Joshua Reynolds, because I collect ALL THINGS CAPTAIN NEMO. And thank goodness, Joshua Reynolds delivered. Although it could've been a full-length book for my tastes, his story of a confrontation between Captain Nemo and Cthulhu is a worthy addition to the several Cap [...]

    2. An obvious follow-up to "Cthulhu Unbound", this collection of Lovecraftian tales appropriately spans across space and time.

    5. Some of the stories in this compilation are absolutely excellent.Stomach Acid? Excellent. Tomb On A Dead Moon? Superb. The Tenants Of Ladywell manor? very good.The problem is a lot of the short stories were not so good. And one or two were almost unreadably bad. So a real mixed bag.
