Definitive Weird Fiction: H.P. Lovecraft

Definitive Weird Fiction: H.P. Lovecraft

mightythorjrs - The Black Blog of Nameless Cults

A While back I started a new blog post series here on Mighty Thor JRS, Definitive Sword and Sorcery. It has done quite well so I thought I would expand a little and include some other sub-genres and authors I love. Since it is October and things are feeling spooky leading up to Halloween I thought I would go with some Definitive Weird Fiction. At least what is definitive in my opinion. I will spotlight some of the best authors and books fantasy has ever known. I can’t wait to share these amazing books, authors, and the amazing cover art and artist. For this post I am going to go with H.P Lovecraft and his amazing stories.

I write these post as a spotlight or introduction on these authors and books, so when I have a author that is so well known it makes it a little harder…

My Review of The Forgotten Beasts of Eld


The Forgotten Beasts of Eld - Patricia A. McKillip

The Forgotten Beasts of Eld by Patricia A. McKillip is a story about Sybel, a wizard that does not need the outside world. She locks herself behind her gates with her enchanted beasts, but when a soldier beckons at her gates with an infant, she about to find out about love and deceit.


This story is about love, deceit, and revenge, and the toll it can have on one’s heart and mind. It was well written with lively characters, and magical beasts. A wonderful story with clean romance.


I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for and honest review.

My Review of The Rage That Follows


The Rage That Follows - Nathaniel Badertscher

The Rage That Follows is Nathaniel Badertscher’s debut novel about The Knights Seraphin, monster hunters sworn to the goddess Seraphe. Joren, a shepherd’s son, sees a face within the woods that frightens him to his very core. Sergeant Garret Rhys of The Knights Seraphin and his company have arrived on their way to their mission and decide to stay for a night at the shepherd’s hall to rest before moving on with their quest, not knowing that there is an evil that none of them are prepared for.

Nathaniel weaves a gripping tale full of fear, tragedy, and loss. This is an incredible tale with extraordinary characters. I was thoroughly taken with this story. As the story unfolded, I could not put this book down. The characters were engrossing and the dialogue between the characters was such that I felt the emotions of each character. I am truly looking forward to more of Nathaniel’s work.


Cautionary note: there is quite a bit of gore, for those not into that. Also, there aren’t any sex scenes for those looking for that.

Book Haul: Midnight Tides and The Bonehunters by Steven Erikson

I started reading this series several months back and it has quickly become my new obsession. After much searching I was finally able to track down some TBP’s and book club hardcovers. These books seem impossible to find in anything other than Mass market PB. Any tips on collecting this series would be greatly appreciated.

I came across these wonderful Books in a used book store and had to have them! My first non BC hardcover and a TPB. I am very excited to continue my collection, and to continue reading this mind blowing series. Keep and eye out for more Malazan post and reviews soon!

My Review of The Verkreath Horror


The Verkreath Horror - Martyn Stanley

The Verkreath Horror by Martyn Stanley is the second book in the Deathsworn Arc series. After defeating the Noble Dragon and losing two of their comrades, the remaining crew start their journey back to the empress to receive their pay for a deed well done, but run into unfortunate circumstances that lead them running for their lives underground.

This story was a bit slower paced as we got to know the characters a little better. The characters are a lively crew and it was interesting getting to know them more. I felt this book was better edited than the first, which made it more enjoyable than the first.

My Review of Kingsteel


Kingsteel (The Dragonkin Trilogy Book 3) - Michael Meyerhofer

I received the The Dragonkin Trilogy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review, therefore, I’m going to start my review a bit different than usual. The reason for this change in the way I’m reviewing is because Booklikes counts trilogies, series, and anthologies as one book, and I’m greedy so I broke this one down to get credit for all three books, though I’ll be reviewing the entire trilogy.

Kingsteel by Michael Meyerhofer is the last book in the Dragonkin Trilogy. Rowen has won the battle, but has he won the war? There is a new threat out there that Rowen must contend with.
