Dead but Dreaming, edited by Kevin Ross & Keith Herber

Travelling back in time, as usual. I read Dead But Dreaming 2 a few years ago, and now am getting around to the original (or at least the Miskatonic River Press reissue of the original).

This anthology is a worthy antecedent to DBD2, with a nice variety of generally good Lovecraftian stories. There are maybe more meh ones in the bunch (than DBD2), but still not much in the way of stinkeroos. Standouts for me include "The Disciple" by David Barr Kirtley, and Ramsey's Campbell's "The Other Names".
