    1 thought on “The Web of Easter Island

    1. There being comparatively so few horror novels published prior to the era of the "blockbuster" initiated by Ira Levin, William Peter Blatty, Stephen King, etc I was really looking forward to this one. I was particularly interested, because it was originally published by Arkham House (which Wandrei co-founded), pretty much the only publisher to keep horror alive between the decline of the pulp magazines and the blockbuster era, and who published quite a few genuine classics of the genre. The nove [...]

    2. I've been wanting to read this book for the best part of twenty years, and finally found a copy at a convention. The imagery is powerful, but the book is so overwritten in parts I found a lot of it hard to take seriously, and the best chapter in the book sets up a potentially interesting murder scenario on board a boat and then doesn't feature the characters again! Alas, 'Web' has turned out to be something of a disappointment - if I could I'd give this two and a half stars, but have upgraded it [...]

    3. 'The Web Of Easter Island' is very weird, and not just in terms of its genre. As a novel it doesn't really work, probably because Wandrei was a short story writer who dabbled in detective fiction and 'astounding' science fiction, and these elements, tossed into the book, confuse the narrative structure and distract from its core as piece of 'weird fiction'. The dialogue is pretty bad, and the characterizations of women are awful. On the other hand, it conjures a powerful, dreamlike hallucinatory [...]

    5. It's remarkable that something with a heavy subject like "our gods hate us" could be so much fluff. This book is an H.P. Lovecraft imitation, both in its overwrought prose and its cosmic-horror storyline, and that's not an unjustified slur. Wandrei was part of Lovecraft's circle, the author even dedicates the book to him, and he frequently reads like he is trying to impress his mentor rather then develop his own story. However there is one chapter that stood out. At one point a rake trying to av [...]

    6. Atmospheric and intense, but ultimately a little disappointing -- this is really a short story pumped-up to novel length with the addition of a middle section (involving an unresolved murder mystery) with two characters who do not appear elsewhere.The final apocalyptic section is over-written even by Lovecraftian standards and again inflated to excessive length.spheric, but not that great.Perhaps if I had read this as a young teenager I would be entrancedbut even then the failures of plot logic [...]

    7. I love this book!Read it almost 50 years ago and enjoyed it.Reread it yesterday and still enjoyed it.
