    "The Shadow Out Of Time." Not my favorite HPL. Slow moving revelation of wonder story which I found very difficult to read.

    Well, now, I thought Shad was one of his better stories. I liked the visions of vast eras and infinite time which the story presented, and the anomalies were interesting. It was more readable to me than many a Lovecraft story, too. Wondering more about what your objections to it were.

    It's hardly scientific or critically creditable but to be honest I found myself reading sentences over and over trying to figure out what he was saying. I didn't hate it but couldn't wait for it to get over. "Shadow Over Innsmouth" was the complete opposite, a veritable edge-of-the-seater if there ever was one. The best story in his Best Of collection from Ballantine.
