Lovecraft weaves a unique tale, with the trip to the Antarctic reminiscent to me of John Carpenter's "The Thing." I found it challenging to read this book to anything but jazz, oddly. Usually just silence. The horror he imbues throughout the tale is palatable. He gets in your head. There is an epic mythos behind the story. I quite enjoyed it, but Arthur Machen is still my favorite weird fiction author.

I'm looking forward to chatting about this book at the next Rapscallions meeting. ( )

Lovecraft seems to excel at one technique: establishing mood. The rest, I could do without. I liked the mood though, and read it quite rapidly near the end. Lovecraft quite bizarrely even managed to make penguins creepy. Weird fiction indeed.

Also, by a happy coincidence, this novella seems to be the origin of the story that eventually evolved into John Carpenter's The Thing, which is the best. ( )

I wasn't keen on this. I found the language overly scientific in order to create a response and the 'terror' was badly described. I won't be recommending it. ( )

Imagine a museum walk-through of the Old Ones within the Cthulhu mythos. It is not Lovecraft's best story, but it is still a macabre, literary masterpiece. ( )

Excellent, as expected. Despite the fame of At the Mountains of Madness, my favorite tale was actually The Dreams in the Witch-House. Lovecraft has built an intricate, fascinating universe and this tale affords glimpses into multiple pieces of that universe. ( )
