    One thought on “Best Little Witch-House in Arkham”

    1. This collection compiles 25 of my best Mythos-inspired horror stories, written throughout my career as an author. It's the culmination of many years of work. Many of these stories were written for various anthologies, and with each one, I needed to think: What can I do that will be different? What can I add to the Mythos collective that says something new?

    2. A psychedelic mind bender of Lovecraftian tales, where the horror and the humor never let up. These stories are addicting. I found myself wanting to read the next story immediately just to see what kind of monster and hilarious word amalgamation Mark McLaughlin had coming next. The monsters in Best Little Witch-House in Arkham are hysterical and terrifying, most are playful renditions of Lovecraft's classic entities and Outer Gods and Old Ones, but McLaughlin also brings his own brand of star-sp [...]

    3. I go to different books for different reasons. Obviously, I didn't go to Witch-House for a Dostoyevskian examination of human nature. I went there for some fun, entertaining horror reads, and I was more than satisfied with what I found. The tone is set right from the introduction as we are welcomed to the Witch-House in a voice that reminded me of the Crypt Keeper from Tales From the Crypt.These stories are endlessly entertaining, combining creepiness and humor. I've read a little over half the [...]

    4. This book is utter nonsense in the most awesome way possible!Best Little Witch-House in Arkham is filled with pop culture references, crude humor, and eldritch horror, all packed in 25 hilariously absurd stories inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's writings.Very, very delightful!(please ignore my crappy english)

    5. Lots of great stories like Lovecraft used to write. Most are set in the present day and some are in weird fantasy settings. Highly recommended!

    6. From the book's title I thought all the stories in this would be funny. A lot were really funny but many were solid horror stories too. a great mix of very different stories.

    7. One must be knowledgeable about the writings of American horror author H. P. Lovecraft in order to understand the allusions and references employed by comic writer Mark McLaughlin. However, there are many aficionados of Lovecraft's work: fans who like suspense and terror, literary scholars who appreciate an author's use of the language (images, figures of speech like metaphors, schools of literary criticism like Freudianism, Jungian archetypes, feminism, etc), and those loyal followers who see h [...]

    8. The tone of this volume of loosely-related short stories can be best described as Douglas Adams meets Lovecraft. The author crams as many inside jokes, unveiled references, and knowing winks into each story as he possibly can, and weaves them into his plots deftly.The tales can be read as satire or as send-up. Either way, they work. Some work better than others, though the quality of the writing isn't uneven. It's just that some jokes are better than others.There's considerable knowledge of Yog- [...]

    9. A mix of serious but mostly comic stories that will keep you smiling and entertained. Worth the purchase and read for something quite different.I gave this book three stars only because I'm more of a fan of serious stories. Most of this enjoyable book is light-hearted and pun filled. Favorite stories:A beauty treatment for Mrs. HamogeorgakisShoggoth CacciatoreThe Embrace of KugappaFinesseDer Fleischbrunnen

    10. This is a delightful collection of Lovecraftian themes short stories with a humorous twist. If you enjoy Lovecraft or any type of weird fiction where the writing is funny and very clever, don't miss this one.

    11. This is the page for the ebook version of the trade paperback. I rather like the idea of an ebook of Lovecraftian horrors. When, I wonder, will we all get to go digitally mad reading the electronic version of the NECRONOMICON.?

    12. I really really enjoyed this! I love Lovecraft, and McLaughlin did an amazing job with the various short stories. I laughed, I made 'ick' faces, I shared passages with those around me. I highly recommend this book!!

    13. I was drawn to this book by its title and spiffy cover art. I ended up enjoying it even more than I expected. If you like horror, science-fiction, and pop culture references, chances are you will enjoy this book, too.

    14. This book grabbed ahold of my attention and pulled me into each story. I was wanting more by the end of the first story.

    15. Kept trying to read this, but basically the author thinks that he is cleverer than he really is. Gave up, as I wrote better Lovecraftian garbage as a teen than this.
