At the Earth's Core

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

AT THE EARTH'S CORE begins as a fun "hollow Earth" adventure but its episodic nature becomes tedious. And, as soon as the book's hero meets Dian the Beautiful, the romance aspect of this "scientific romance" takes over and most of the hero's subsequent actions are designed to reunite him with Dian. Burroughs included some surprisingly grisly descriptions, however, like the hypnotism scene in the Mahar temple.

The Call of Cthulhu

by H. P. Lovecraft

"The Call of Cthulhu" is one of H.P. Lovecraft's most famous -- and most accessible -- works. It is sometimes difficult to read Lovecraft because of his prose style, but this story moves along at a fairly brisk pace. If you've never tried Lovecraft -- or if you have, and didn't enjoy his work -- then try "The Call of Cthulhu."

Alleys of Darkness

by Robert E. Howard

A gullible boxer is tricked into a kidnapping plot in this pulp tale by Robert E. Howard. The story is forgettable but worth reading if you’ve never encountered anything by REH outside of the sword & sorcery genre.

The Monster of Lake Lametrie

by Wardon Allan Curtis

This short story begins well, promising a "hollow Earth" adventure. But it takes a wrong turn into "mad scientist" territory when a human brain is transplanted into the skull of an elasmosaurus. You won't want to miss the scene with the singing plesiosaur. Ridiculous!
