Lovecraftian Thing A Day No.54: The Opener of the Way
Following my encounters with Derleth, Robert Bloch's The Opener of the Way - in yet another UK Neville Spearman edition - was another collection of mythos tales that found its way onto the shelves of my locale library in the late 1970s. Still no Lovecraft, though. Even so, Bloch's Egyptological spin on the mythos was enough to keep me going. It was also through his work that I had my first proper encounter with The Strange Dark One: Nyarlathotep.
