    "The Big Sleep is the classic detective story. It took ideas from many great writers, and it inspired many stories like it. It is worthwhile for its historical relevance."

    "I asked my friend to find a pulp magazine for me like my father talked about reading when he was young. While this is an excellent crime novel that is very well written, it's not what I was looking for."

    "Love this kind of old gothic. Exciting, scarry, but also strangely comforting in its own way. Don't conjure anything up, that you cannot handle!"

    "Some books are written just so that the writer can say I wrote a book. This book makes no sense, has no order about it, and really is just not good, the story is not good, the characters are not good, the premise is not good, its just not good!!"

    "The Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos will satisfy any craving for the horror of creeping dread and the unknown, but may not satisfy those who are looking for pure pulp. This collection is highly recommended to those who want to feel fear."

    "This was written a looooooooong time ago. It's a bit outdated, but it doesn't lose my interest whatsoever. It's engaging and keeps my attention all the way through. Perfect book to read every so often. Definitely not for someone who is into short stories. This book will always be in my library."

    "Not exactly Pulp magazine but not bad. I'm not sure why national geographic showed up under pulp magazines but it wasnt bad. I really enjoyed the information as it was new and exciting. But again, it didnt match what I was looking for at all."
