Book Review: The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All by Laird Barron

I enjoy good weird fiction like any other introverted guy who enjoys creeping the normies out at parties by discussing the books he reads. Yet so much weird fiction these days seems to be just a regurgitation of what Lovecraft already wrote, with only few exceptions. So when I was given the chance to review The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All by Laird Barron and saw the inevitable comparisons to Lovecraft, I was hesitant to try the book. In the end I decided to give it a shot since I have not read an anthology of short fiction for quite some time. (Read the rest of the review over at Amazing Stories.)
