The Flock of Ba-Hui by Arthur Meursault & Oobmab - Guest Blogger Book Review


Synopsis

A researcher disappears while exploring the deep caverns of mountainous Sichuan, where folklore speaks of primeval reptilian gods sleeping beneath the earth. An artist dreams of a mysterious black tower stretching skyward for infinity, and glimpses the cold truth of the universe when he decides to climb it. Strange bubbling and decomposed corpses are discovered in the tunnels beneath an old mansion in the city of Qingdao, and an ancient temple in Tibet terrifies all who dare approach. Meanwhile, in an abandoned house, a stranger gathers together a group of bewildered scholars to whisper in the darkness of eldritch abominations and even weirder phantasms.


From the stygian depths of the Chinese internet, we proudly present four wholly original tales of cosmic horror based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft and translated into English for the very first time. These ghoulish short stories take their inspiration from some of Lovecraft's choicest nightmares and offer a different perspective on those things best left unseen. Follow us on a dream-quest as we explore what fresh terrors the Cthulhu Mythos has to offer from the other side of the Great Wall. Written in the authentic style of the pulp magazines of the 1930s, this unique offering of twisted tales will leave Lovecraft fans terrified and astounded by the stories' breadth of imagination.


The Flock of Ba-Hui takes Lovecraft's world in a new direction and is essential reading for the true horror aficionado and an ideal accompaniment to the Seven Cryptical Books of Hsan.

Jennifer's Review
It’s a good book that I enjoyed reading. 
It’s 4 different stories of artifacts that have been found in far away places, and each of the 4 people who found them tell their stories of how they went in search of each item. 
The person who kept all the items in a box is not human but not animal either.  
As each item is taken out of the box, the person who found it tells the story of how it was found, what they saw, how they escaped, and what happened afterwards. 
My favorite story was the last one and the most intense story ever told. The end of the book is so shocking that you will be surprised. 
I give this book 3 stars.
