Has anyone here read Further Beyond: A Lovecraftian Science Fiction Novel by Brian Stableford? I've enjoyed several of his books in the past, but the idea of Lovecraftian science fiction (beyond the sort of science fiction present in some of Lovecraft's own stories) generally leaves me cold, so I'm looking for opinions.

I haven't, but I've enjoyed Jeffrey Thomas' Punktown stories.


Come read about Dreamhounds of Paris actually being played.

Looking at the blurb for the book, I'd describe it as a Mythos story not as science fiction, even if it does have SF in the title.

 

From Brian's history he's done a lot of work on scientific romances, which some of HPL's work could be classed as.

 

Looking at his bibliography, he's written quite a few Lovecraftian stories. I've not read any of his work since The Werewolves of London trilogy, so I'll try and pick some of his work up again.
