I have another review up on Shiny New Books today, and it’s of another author new to me – H.P. Lovecraft. I’m not much of a reader of horror fiction and if I do touch upon that genre, it tends to be classics rather than modern writing. I suppose this *would* be classed as a classic as it was written in 1927 (though not issued until 1943), and as it was being published by Apollo, who are releasing some wonderful lost novels, I was keen to give it a try.
I ended up absolutely loving “The Case of Charles Dexter Ward”. It was spooky, gripping and very entertaining, and not quite what I expected of Lovecraft. You can read what I thought about it here!
