Very good story of a high-schooler at a time when everyone has portable mental transmission machines and can tune in to one another's thoughts and sensations. The kid's private code is hacked and his dreams are uploaded on the internet. Very embarrassing.
Interesting premise, and a couple of clever rebels.

Possibly because he had a co-writer, this story is much less ponderous than most of Lovecraft's writing. The descriptions are good, and the tension grows throughout the story.
An anthropologist (or something) goes to Oklahoma to investigate the legends of the snake-god, Yig. His travels lead him to an insane asylum and a story by one of the institution's doctors.
Recommended.
