Rainbringer: Zora Neale Hurston Against The Lovecraftian MythosRainbringer: Zora Neale Hurston Against The Lovecraftian Mythos by Edward M. Erdelac
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rainbringer is a collection of short stories featuring author Zora Neal Hurston by Edward Erdelac.

On the heels of Lovecraft Country and Destroyer of Worlds, I was hungry for more stories featuring both Jim Crow racism and the Cthulhu mythos and already had this on my kindle.

This was great stuff. Zora goes up against various Cthulhu mythos creatures, from Harlem to Haiti to the legendary Lost City of the Monkey-God and various points in between. Erdelac does a good job of writing in various dialects without making it ridiculous and knows how to spin a cosmic horror tale like nobody's business.

They say to write the kind of books you'd like to read. Turns out, I don't have to. Edward Erdelac is already writing them for me. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
