    One thought on “The Yith Cycle: Tales of the Great Race”

    1. This is a fun wee Mythos anthology -- but it has a serious flaw -- someone really messed up and missed the shoggoth. On the back cover it says that the book contains the "purified" text of "The Shadow out of Time." In editor Bob Price's Introduction to that story he writes, "We are mighty pleased to be able to bring you the best version of Lovecraft's text ever published. In 1995 Nelson Shreve discovered Lovecraft's original holograph manuscript of the tale among his late sister-in-law's papers. [...]

    2. This is a nice collection of classic tales of scientific horror. A lot of these stories all relate in some way to the great race of Yith. H. P. Lovecraft's time traveling aliens who have mastered the future and cast the minds of their race into the bodies of other creatures throughout time. In this way they study all the eras of time, both historical and future. Lovecraft's original story, as well as, August Derleth's sequel to it.The first story is a bit of a stretch. It deals with a "Great Rac [...]

    3. A good compendium of material, although much deviates enough from the concept of the Yithians as per "Shadow Out Of Time". The opening story, "The Purple Sapphire" predates Lovecraft's work, but is an excellent piece of period high adventure, involving an Indiana Jones-esque journey through India, into Tibetand Mongolia, through massive underground thoroughfares to a lost city, all to rescue a young girl (and collect some treasure on the way). Probably the best piece in the book. Lovecraft's "Th [...]

    4. Bloody Yith coming over here from beyond the vast gulfs of space, stealing our bodies and sending our consciousnesses off to be trapped in alien forms facing terrible,nameless inescapable dooms.Still, good luck to em eh.
