The second book went on a weird turn with time travel in a old grandfather clock where you step inside and its bigger on the inside then the outside Doctor who he uses a nice piece from whisperers in darkness to good use but I wasn t too excited about what happens to Titus Crow in this book Seemed to much ike science fiction superhero stuff instead of unspeakable horror and sights that drive a man insaneThe third book uses the mythos in a different way Lumley uses the mythos here of the Dreamlands and a couple other ocations that Lovecraft made up A bit of a fast twist from the ast bookI ook forward to reading the other Mythos Omnibus but I hope the stories come back to the strange and scary not flying cloaks and plastic men It started so well but by the end of the second book I feel it was drifting off Still well worth reading but not as good as it could have been Tales from the Cthulhu Mythos with added serendipity ITIONS OF TITUS CROW Fleeing from the Burrowers Crow discovers the secrets of time and space and earns the ore of the Great Old Ones But Lord Cthulhu seeks not only the domination of Earth but the destruction of the Elder Gods and the space time continuum itself De Marigny answers Crow's call from the depths of space to join him in the battle for universal san.
Uzzah The main thing that drew me to Lovecraft s work was the futility of man s struggle against the Great Old Ones and the grinding powerlessness of the protagonists Here was a evel of misanthropy and pessimism that oozed from every page the machinations of man freuently eading to nothing and I ove it Very few authors have such negative endings to their stories New Plant Parent: Learn the Ways of Plant Parenthood let alone with the freuency that HP didSo imagine my dismay when I read the collected tales of Titus Crow part wizard part scholar part Ian McKellen that can batter Cthulhu and all his mates with his corner shop full of psychic doodads magical g Too muchike Lovecraft for me tried too hard to be Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey like it and failed wanted and wanted it to be its own I have to say that I wasooking forward to reading this material I had already picked up an edition of Volume 1 and had enjoyed most of what I found there I was destined to be very disappointed with the second round. Ity against all the forces of evil THE CLOCK OF DREAMS From fathomless ocean depths Cthulhu's dreams disturb the minds of men to reshape the waking world Diverted from his search for the ost Elysia de Marigny pilots his space time machine into subconscious worlds of dream and nightmare in a bid to save the ives and very souls of Titus Crow and Tiania of Elysia.
I can understand why the reviews are so mixed on this book I have yet to read Lovecraft s stories they re next on my ЯED list so my expectations were totally different from everyone else s If you reooking for Lovecraft standard horror then you re probably not ikely to enjoy this book as much as I did But if you start reading this knowing that there is very tame horror then I think you l enjoy it Full review to come The Lost Art of Reading Natures Signs later I didn t have high hopes for this series but the books get aot better as you progress By the end of these three I ve rather fallen in Moreno love with the series It s creative and expansive I d definitely recommend reading it Iiked The Burrowers Beneath I d give that 3 or 4 stars but was disappointed with The Transition of Titus Crow Maybe This book of three novels was alright The first story The burrowers Beneath was the Lovecraft mythos I enjoy unspeakable monsters crazy cults coming after you Great stuff. From the Creator of Necroscope three Monsieur Pain landmark novels of the Cthulhu Mythos THE SAGA OF TITUS CROW THE BURROWERS BENEATH In which Crow is alerted to a menace in the earth that gnaws at the very foundations of Man's domination of his home planet and seeks to usurp him Two men share a terrible secret and make theironely stand against subterranean terror THE TRANS.
