Review by: Alan Loewen on April 17, 2014 :
I very much enjoyed this Lovecraftian pastiche that certainly captured the spirit of Lovecraft's Mythos without delving deeply into its weaknesses (all those adjectives and adverbs!). Donald Healey has created a work the Old Gentleman from Providence would have certainly approved.

Review by: Michael Carter on March 16, 2013 :
This is an intelligently written and faithful pastiche of Lovecrafts work. When a man inherits a strange archaic coin he becomes obsessed with discovering from whence it came. Impressive vocabulary and authentic Lovecraft references keep the story going along, although I would have liked more of a "crowning horror" thing towards the end. I felt that the ending wasn't quite as horrific as it might have been. Nevertheless, this is a very good Lovecraftian story, yet further proof that his legacy of the Wierd Tale continues, and I would recommend this to any fan of the Wierd Tale.

As far as Lovecraft pastiches go, this one is pretty good. Above the average, in fact. It definitely has a Lovecraftian core, but has some interesting original touches as well, and overall makes for a good read. Heartily recommended.
