Review: THE OUTSIDERS
An extraordinary, seamless, collection with a shared-theme, shared-world--a wonderfully Lovecraftian world, a theme unafraid to reveal the very dark underside of the Lovecraftian Mythos. Five great authors--Gary Fry, James Everington, Stephen Bacon, V.H. Leslie, Rosanne Rabinowitz--collude to provide an incredible story set about one rural English gated community, Priory, a community unlike any other, a community with one focus and one purpose. THE OUTSIDERS is Lovecraftian, yes; but the stories also manage to tell a lot about human nature and interaction, about human fear of the unknown and the perceived "different," about self-loathing turned inside out and projected against "the other." This book deserves a wide and encompassing readership.
