Publisher Comments:

Originally written for the pulp magazines of the 1920s and 1930s, H. P. Lovecraft's astonishing tales blend elements of horror, science fiction, and cosmic terror that are as powerful today as they were when they were first published. This tome brings together all of Lovecraft's harrowing stories, including the complete Cthulhu Mythos cycle, just the way they were first released. It will introduce a whole new generation of readers to Lovecraft's fiction, as well as attract those fans who want all his work in a single, definitive volume.

About the Author

H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) has been hailed as one of the most important and influential authors of supernatural fiction of the 20th century. A life-long resident of Providence, Rhode Island, Lovecraft's tales are often set in the fear-haunted towns of an imaginary area of Massachusetts, or in the cosmic vistas that exist beyond space and time. Since his untimely death, he has been acknowledged as an American master of fantasy fiction, second only to Edgar Allan Poe.

Lord of the West, June 21, 2009 (view all comments by Lord of the West)
This book contains some of Lovecraft's bests. It is well organized and would be a great book for a neophyte or experianced Lovecraftian reader. The type set is easy to read, and the illustrations are a bit bland and repetative, but they do help add some to the setting of many of the stories.
I wish there were more Lovecraft books like this one.
