A time-space chiller-thriller in the Lovecraft Tradition. This is the second novel in Brian Lumley's Cthulhu Mythos series.
The Transition of Titus Crow is a fascinating follow-up to the Burrowers Beneath but not one which is without controversy. Brian Lumley takes the titular character and sends him on a 70s psychadelic trip across the multiverse in a time-travelling coffin which effectively turns the entire thing into Doctor Who meets Lovecraft. This the kind of story where the protagonist becomes a cyborg, journeys to science fiction heaven, outwits Yog-Sothoth, and talks with Cthulhu's benevolent brother. It's a crazy-crazy book and I'm very glad to have read it but it's not without flaws. Even so, Simon Vance does an amazing job here and I recommend people pick it up. Just don't expect a traditional Lovecraft tale.

the audio file is broken from 00:12:30 - 0016:00. they say they are looking into it but we will see.
The deliberate gaps in the story were too much. They just became annoying. I will continue with the series though.
