    1 thought on “The Colour Out of Space

    1. In some ways, if you think about it, The Colour Out of Space could be H.P Lovecraft s scariest story.And that is saying a lot.Published in 1927, this was almost certainly an influence for Stephen King in his story The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verill which gave rise to King s memorial dramatic performance and his unforgettable line of meteor s from the 1982 film Creepshow.Lovecraft describes, in his unmentionable, oldest and strongest, ancient and mysterious, eldritch style of writing how a strang [...]

    2. Please note This is part of am omnibus, The Complete Works of H.P Lovecraft, which can be found on the CthulhuChick website formatted for Nook or Kindle.My Synopsis A man tells the story of how a strange, desolate piece of land came to be known as the blasted heath due to the coming of a mysterious meteorite containing a strangely colored globule inside.My Thoughts Another masterpiece of creeping horror over the strange and unknown Some of the descriptions might almost almost describe radiation [...]

    3. My first attempt on H.P Lovecraft A three story book, this seems like a sampler for me This book consists of Lovecraft s short stories The Colour Out of Space, The Outsider and The Hound I am glad that this didn t fail my expectations of Lovecraft Carefully written, with vivid details on the imagery, and dark appeal, this can give you goosebumps The stories are creepy, but not the kind that can make you scream But it s a page turner, and the voice of the storyteller is perfect for a dark, gothic [...]

    4. Another re read for me One of Lovecraft s finest stories that is perfectly paced and with a great build up and release of tension at the end.A meteor lands in a farmer s land in a rural backwater in New England It has exceedingly strange properties that baffle scientists and gradually has a strange and insidious effect on the surrounding area.Definitely recommended for those new to Lovecraft, especially if you re already inclined to read SF.

    5. A longer short story from Lovecraft this time and quite possibly the best I ve read actually it is the best I ve read, but I ve only read two others A meteor crashes down to earth on some farmstead and thus proceeds to infect all around it with its out of this world eerie qualities It becomes apparent that, much like Shelley and her Frankenstein s creation, we don t get told everything Things happen, but no details come forth It is implied strongly, with language and rhetoric I ve not come acros [...]

    6. It was not a matter of old legendry at all, but something within the lifetime of those who spoke It had happened in the eighties, and a family had disappeared or was killed Speakers would not be exact and because they all told me to pay no attention to old Ammi Pierce s crazy tales, I sought him out the next morning, having heard that he lived alone in the ancient tottering cottage where the trees first begin to get very thick.To me this reads entirely as camp, and it s camp I love I have no dou [...]

    7. Lectura del mes del Clubdelectura This was no breath from the skies whose motions and dimensions our astronomers measure or deem too vast to measure It was just a colour out of space, a frigthful messenger from unformed realms of infinity beyond all Nature as we know it from realms whose mere existence stuns the brain and numbs us with the black extra cosmic gulfs it throws open before our frenzied eyes.

    8. The Blasted heath is a vacant, almost shunned deep wood valley by the West Hills of rural New England, a place no good for imagination with its withered vegetation and evasively muttered local legends This novella, like atavistic Arkham mysteries, takes reader through the narrative of an unnamed outsider, in his quest to understand the queer happenings of Gardner Estate, following a meteorite fall.The monster or alien or other dimensional entity in this book, is a colour, or takes the form of a [...]

    9. This was my very first and as of this date, only H.P Lovecraft I have ever read Considering my reading history, you would have thought I would have at least a few of them under my belt by now but I was avoiding him When I was fairly young, there was a show on TV that was about Lovecraft I wasn t really watching that show but in those days there were only a couple of channels and I just happened to flip to it and watched a few minutes I was freaked out I was totally and completely turned off of h [...]

    10. A strange book to read over the Pacific Ocean but nevertheless a beautiful image of a landscape gone wrong This is my first Lovecraft tale and want to read Since there s no dialog, the actions that take place makes the story even odd And don t go to the water well

    11. It s been a while since I read any Lovecraft so I d forgotten just how crap he is Lovecraft s problem is his poor writing ability He can come up with some great stories and ideas, he clearly had a ton of nightmarishly unique imagery, but he really struggles to convey them to the reader Like The Colour Out of Space, which tells of a meteorite hitting a farm and the mysterious colourfully glowing rock slowly poisoning the farmer and his family It s a great setup but Lovecraft ineptly tries to make [...]

    12. I ve read somewhere that when Lovecraft set out to write The Colour Out of Space, he wanted to write about an alien entity, that was actually alien and unknown Because Lovecraft realized that if you used the same caricature of a grey alien every time that you wrote an alien UFO story it wasn t going to be scary at all And besides, the word alien refers to something absolutely foreign and unknown, and after awhile being told something is alien, doesn t make it so.But Lovecraft did it He created a [...]

    13. Para ser lo primero que leo de Lovecraft me gust Me cost un poco engancharme pero despu s lo termin en un ratito No da miedo en absoluto, pero, si como yo viven en el campo rodeados de rboles y tienen cerca un viejo pozo con agua contaminada debido a que a os atr s alguien tuvo la brillante idea de rellenar el fondo con huesos, les aseguro que puede llegar a ser bastante sugestivo y perturbador.

    14. This was no fruit of such worlds and suns as shine on the telescopes and photographic plates of our observatories This was no breath from the skies whose motions and dimensions our astronomers measure or deem too vast to measure It was just a colour out of space a frightful messenger from unformed realms of infinity beyond all Nature as we know it from realms whose mere existence stuns the brain and numbs us with the black extra cosmic gulfs it throws open before our frenzied eyes Two years ago, [...]

    16. y los artistas tiemblan mientras pintan unos bosques cuyo misterio es tanto de la mente como de la vista 2015 Reading Challenge A book a friend recommended Empec este libro en la facultad antes de entrar a cursar y le la mayor a de l hoy en el colectivo volviendo de la Feria del Libro No me quer a bajar para poder seguir leyendo Me atrap mucho la escritura y la historia igual Muy bueno, y el primero de muchos.Gracias por tanto, perd n por tan poco, Lovecraft.

    17. this is my first ever read of this author and i thought it an excellent sampling of three shorts his writing is flawless and takes us smoothly along his story development solid and captivating the second of these three shorts the outsider seemed like a kafka story in its descriptions and underlying alienation of course the ending was not of kafka but fitting for lovecraft s stories well worth the time.

    18. Good little story about a strange alien blob that radiates super spectral colours of infectious decay.

    19. It was a nice read of a classic horror narrative with an interesting take on aliens Buuuut it wasn t enough to merit than 2 stars.The story is about a meteor that hits a farmland and starts changing the terrains and living creatures around it including a farmer and his family The horrors start to unfold bit by bit by a colorful phantasm that in a sense consumes the are, but to what purpose is unclear.This story was certainly chilling at times and Lovecraft sure knows how to paint a scene especi [...]

    20. There s some really creepy stuff in here, reminds me a lot of one of his other stories, Witches Hollow I think I preferred that one, as while this one is good, it drags a bit in the middle This is the first longer work of Lovecraft s that I ve read, and from my experience so far I think his stories and writing work better in shorter stories One of my favourites of his stories is The Thing in the Moonlight which is what, 3 pages Really small But amazing But this opinion may change as I read of h [...]

    21. The Colour of Space by H P LovecraftIn this work 78 pages, across three stories, The Colour Out of Space , The Outsider and The Hound The Colour Out of Space is an wonderfully atmospheric piece in which the reader is transported to an area of remote scrub in America, and the story unfolds with something lurking out there.Typically Lovecraft, in that it s not so much what he suggests, but what your own imagination suggests Excellent read.

    22. 2.55 When I heard that this is a great Sci Fi story, I had higher expectations for it I think that ended being somewhat of a disappointment Also the ending was meh I did read other short stories by Lovecraft and enjoyed them This is the only exception till now.

    23. H.P Lovecraft has a very high ability at describing things I can see a lot of what he takes the time to visuallize, but at times he falls short on attempting to describe it, substituting it for, the item beyond description This can fall flat at times.

    24. A deep space booger lands in a farm and the townspeople run tests on the snot Turns out this isn t a cold anyone wants to catch The moral of the story is, take extra vitamin C when Pandora blows her nostrils on your neighbors.

    25. I ve been meaning to read some Lovecraft for a while but wasn t sure where to start so this book of short stories, I thought was a good taster into his work I m also not usually a big horror fan so I also wasn t sure I wanted to invest a lot into a genre that I wasn t familiar with.The three short stories it includes are The Colour Out of Space, The Outsider and The Hound I ll be talking about all three.First up is The Colour Out of Space a clever blend of science fiction and horror One man, rec [...]
