A review on Amazon gives this novella five stars! To bad it is written by the author. I regularly troll the books on Lulu.com to see what they have for Cthulhu mythos books. Sometimes it leads to a gem, like Where Goeth Nyarlathotep, and sometimes it leads to an almost unreadable dog, like Leviathan's Ghost. Or this book. Rather than do a detailed plot review, I'll just note that the plot, which was initially the most promising part of the book, was very conventional, the prose never rose above labored or pedestrian, the dialogue was stilted and the characters were caricatures. Worst of all, through the first two sections of the book we are leading up to a big action sequence, where some of the protagonists are going to sneak in somewhere and steal something or other, and then it takes place off screen (as it were)! Instead of the authors penning the scene, we see the characters as they return, shaken by their experience. How lame can you get? Also for a mere 90 pages of weak prose, the list price is way too high. The Coming of T'loal is only for the inveterate completist. Anyone with better sense will order Where Goeth Nyarlathotep instead.
