Review by SkuldOMG
There are some pearls in this one, especially because they diverged a little from Lovecraft's typical pattern of "innocent and unknowing man stumbles upon a remnant of the Ancient Ones". Till A' the Seas, Within the Walls of Eryx and The Night Ocean were among my favorites. This along with the other three volumes of this series is a must have for every Lovecraft reader.
