Re: Henry Kuttner's influence on a HPL story?
His writing (Poul Anderson) is probably okay, but he is saying a lot very quickly. With Lovecraft there is a whole bunch of details, and the pace moves along with all that atmospheric support. Now Poul might be better than a writer that uses a lot of dialog, and talks about strange things as if a person is supposed to know what he is talking about, but Poul runs out ahead and it is difficult to follow. Instead of writing two books, he writes it in two chapters.
