RARA-AVIS: The Chinatown Cloud etc. huge disappointment

I couldn't get through the book. It was so full of too knowing references to the pulps and writing for them that it became difficult to tell whether anyone would've really been discussing these things like they were in the book. It just got clumsy. And the plot was awfully slow to start (and when it did, it wasn't much). It could've been better as a mainstream novel, without any adventure elements. The scenes about Lovecraft's burial were pretty good.
