When I approach a work by D. F. Lewis, I know in advance that I am in for one of my two usual reactions: either a pleased (but discomfited) grin or a fit of head-scratching and hair-pulling. "Imprimatur of the Monster" is simple in its plot, but long in its ideas. The tale relates a man's railway journey across the English countryside to return to his childhood home. The man carries with him the unbearable memories and presence of a monster which must be confronted and vanquished. Our narrator realizes that he must stare his chilhood bogeyman in the eye, acknowledge its reality and power, and become a savior of sorts so that others may not suffer. The beast is at once a figment of our narrator's imagination, the oddities of the real world, and the unimaginable and ineffable underpinnings which drive the universe. The story's ending may be objectively interpreted in two ways: either as an authorial copout or as a brilliant play at metafiction. I walked away from this one with that stupid grin on my face. "Imprimatur of the Monster" first appeared in Crypt of Cthulhu #87 (Lammas 1994).

"...I am that ideologue weirdmonger..." - D. F. Lewis, "Imprimatur of the Monster"

I was counting the one I was going to do. Yet still, good idea as the proverb goes. "A bird in the hand is worth feathers in the bush. Or is it, "Feathers in the bush are worth more in the hand?" Then there's the old saying that goes, "Don't count you chickens before the fox arrives." Something like that.

"A Sack of Santa" brings me back to my childhood when the world was much smaller and I believed in silly fantasies like the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. As the narrator says, "The house was huger than when I was small and gullible." The world I now live in is most definitely huge and terrifying, and at times, I can't say I wouldn't want to go back to the smaller world of childhood. There is no going back, though, once the walls of childhood have crumbled. I mourn for that child that I was, yet what can I do?

What I'm not going to do is what the narrator does in "A Sack of Santa Clause." He makes of himself a kind of sack of presents to the children to shore up those walls of beliefs for perhaps the two more important myths of our lives.

http://weirdmonger.blogspot.com/2004/12/sack-of-santa.html

The story wasn't that good for me the first time I read it. By the third time I read it, I really liked it, though. Good sense of mood. Other very different interpretations are entirely possible, especially if you view the happenings in the story as literal.

"SNOW AT MIDNIGHT" certainly took me back to the days where a big snow meant school being cancelled and lying back in bed luxurating in the warmth of the bed compared to the cold, icy looks and the snow falling from the outside. I remember several times dreaming that I had awoken only to then awaken and realize that I had been dreaming I was awake. What a very strang feeling, and the way it is brought across in this story is actually chilling the way the girl never truly knows if she is awake or sleeping. I got a bad feeling at the slamming kitchen door, but the story didn't go in that direction. Overall, I liked the story and the way it kept you thinking about what was really going on.

Byron,

I have just realized that today is Christmas Eve in July. Only you know whether the timing of your post was intentional or coincidental. I've not read the story yet, but am intrigued. You've made me want to read it, which is a sure sign of a fine critique. See how everything fits together?

Best wishes,
Phil

des has graciously awarded me a copy of Zencore in another thread. I will not vie for one here. Byron the Zen master has shown me the way. Good luck, brave souls!

Waste not, want not:

D. F. Lewis' short story "Down to the Boots" was inspired by "The Shadow over Innsmouth," H. P. Lovecraft's classic tale of miscegenation. Mr. Lewis' story is much quieter than "The Shadow over Innsmouth," arguably Lovecraft's most frenzied and action-packed work. "Down to the Boots" explores the themes of loss and transformation through its characters, Owen and Madge, a rather unsuccessful fisherman and his wife. Madge has lost several previous husbands to the sea, and wonders one day why Owen hasn't returned home. She sets out to investigate, only to discover proof positive of her husband's disappearance. This reader suspects that Madge will soon hook a new husband, however. One might say that this story is a deep one, as this little gem has much to say about loneliness, boredom, time, and death. Highly recommended. "Down to the Boots" was first published in Dagon #26 in 1989).

The Builder Dragons of Planet Ishgilia

http://weirdmonger.blogspot.com/2005/04/builder-dragons-of-planet-ishgilia.html# links

Birthday bash monumentally doomed.

There seems to be more than a few shades of Clark Ashton Smith running around this planet. Effulgence is not one of the usual words that you associate with dragons type stories I think.

Sort of sad but not, as they party on regardless of the massive age of their planet and the star that is really pretty necessary to staying alive.

D. F. Lewis' short story "The Fair of the Dog" offers the reader an object lesson in learning to appreciate what life has to offer. The story is set at a fair (read carnival or circus). A fair patron with rather high expectations is duly given his comeuppance in a most unexpected and humorous manner. This reader, in his next life, yearns to be Cerberus if only in miniature. The moral here: Don't bite the hand that seats you. This delightful story is highly recommended!

Well here's my critique.
The Clinging of the Cold is a short tale which is a usual for it's author D.F. Lewis. It's about this woman who has grown up and is telling a story about Donna to her children. You never find out the end of the story the narrator tells. A weird werewolf tale(if that) needs to be read more than once to get the full impact.
