Enjoyable ressurection-of-the-dead story, but sometimes the right bodies aren't in the correct coffins.

Lovecraft scholars will spot several references to The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward, and I found it interesting that the body the guys were looking for died on August 20th, 1890, which just happened to be the day H.P.Lovecraft was born.

Good stuff.

Review by: Phil Strahl on July 20, 2013 :
Readers familiar with the works and life of H.P. Lovecraft will definitely find something worthwhile in this short story. It not only has a related plot-structure, further there are occasional winks at the grandmaster of weird fiction in details and descriptions. An entertaining read!
