The Best of H.P. Lovecraft: Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre by H. P. Lovecraft
The Best of H.P. Lovecraft: Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre

Ashley Wallingford, February 11, 2007

Probably the best book with which to introduce yourself to Lovecraft. Easy to read (even in the darkest places) text and format with 16 short stories that include a good half dozen of his best: The Rats in the Walls, In the Vault, The Call of Cthulhu, The Dunwich Horror, The Thing on the Doorstep and The Shadow Out of Time.

Also included are: The Picture in the House, The Outsider, Pickman's Model, The Silver Key, The Music of Erich Zann, The Whisperer in Darkness, The Colour out of Space, The Haunter of the Dark, The Shadow over Innsmouth and The Dreams in the Witch House.

A great selection! If you are interested in a hardcover, I would recommend The Dunwich Horror and others, from Arkham House, which contains all of these stories except The Silver Key and The Dreams in the Witch-House and adds Cool Air and The Terrible Old Man.
