Staff Reviews


“Not included in the above collection, richly atmospheric, Lovecraft’s
account of the Miskatonic University’s doomed expedition to the
Antarctic is a clever scientific pastiche. Nothing like a geology
professor trying to describe strat that does not correspond to the
familiar nor a biologist describing fauna that should not exist. Even
though this story was written in the ‘30s, it wasn’t until the ‘50s that
the Russians discovered a vast mountain range buried under miles of ice
in the Antarctic. Prescient? Perhaps. There’s been talk of drilling to
explore the Gamburstevs; I would advise against that since things did
not go so well for Professor Lake and his party.”
