*shrugs* I blame it on the PTSD inflicted when White Wolf pulled the oWoD material from the stores, but I actually prefer e-copies. I can print out as many copies as I need and never worry again about them getting soaked/stained/stolen :-)

Don't get me started with White Wolf.. they (the original guys) boned the folks who bought them out and made it impossible for them to keep the feel of the old World of Darkness.

I think I remember "Shadow over Innsmouth" best. Maybe because I like it the best. No big revelations here (compared to Mountains of Madness), which is probably why the story works so well for me.

I rather do not Lovecrafts Dreamworld stuff ... whatever those stories were really called.

The funny thing for me is, two of the best ... somehow Lovecraft-influenced stories I like are not by him. There's "Shogoth's Old Peculiar" by Neil Gaiman, which is a short story and a wonderful parody of stories like Shadow over Innsmouth.
And there's the movie "In The Mouth of Madness" by John Carpenter.
