A bit of Lovecraft

I've never managed to find any Lovecraft and yet everyone raves about his works, so I was amazed when a copy became available on bookhopper!
The book is called 'Dagon and Other Macabre Tales' and so far I've read the first, and title, story. Quite a short story at about 7 pages and not nearly as scary as I was expecting!
Well this was an interesting journey! Though most of the stories in this volume were pretty unremarkable there were one or two gems. The title story is quite creepy, if far too short,but there's a much longer story in there called Herbert West, Re-animator which makes it worth owning this book! Its creepy and humorous at once!
