The Shadow Out of Time indirectly tells of the Great Race of Yith, an extraterrestrial species with the ability to travel through space and time. The Yithians accomplish this by switching bodies with hosts from the intended time and place. The story implies that the effect, when seen from the outside, is similar to spiritual possession.
And yet again we are here to talk about 1 star short story from none other than H.P Lovecraft.
I gotta say that this sort story was essentially the same story as At the Mountains of Madness. And that short story didn’t go well just as this one.
The plot is almost the same as in At the Mountains of Madness but it takes place in Australia.Which really pissed me off because it felt like reading At the Mountains of Madness over again.
The writing style is bad but not as bad as it was in previous short stories I’ve reviewed.
I give this short story 1 / 5
