Tales of the Cthulhu Mythosby H P Lovecraft
Synopses & Reviews
"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."
--H. P. LOVECRAFT, "Supernatural Horror in Literature"
Howard Phillips Lovecraft forever changed the face of horror, fantasy, and science fiction with a remarkable series of stories as influential as the works of Poe, Tolkien, and Edgar Rice Burroughs. His chilling mythology established a gateway between the known universe and an ancient dimension of otherworldly terror, whose unspeakable denizens and monstrous landscapes--dread Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth, the Plateau of Leng, the Mountains of Madness--have earned him a permanent place in the history of the macabre.
In Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos, a pantheon of horror and fantasy's finest authors pay tribute to the master of the macabre with a collection of original stories set in the fearsome Lovecraft tradition:
¸ The Call of Cthulhu by H. P. Lovecraft: The slumbering monster-gods return to the world of mortals.
¸ Notebook Found in a Deserted House by Robert Bloch: A lone farmboy chronicles his last stand against a hungering backwoods evil.
¸ Cold Print by Ramsey Campbell: An avid reader of forbidden books finds a treasure trove of deadly volumes--available for a bloodcurdling price.
¸ The Freshman by Philip José Farmer: A student of the black arts receives an education in horror at notorious Miskatonic University.
PLUS EIGHTEEN MORE SPINE-TINGLING TALES!
Howard Phillips Lovecraft forever changed the face of horror, fantasy, and science fiction with a remarkable series of stories as influential as the works of Poe and Tolkien. His chilling mythology established a gateway between the known universe and an ancient dimension of other worldly terror, whose unspeakable denizens and monstrous landscapes — dread Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth, the Plateau of Leng, the Mountains of Madness — have earned him a permanent place in the history of the macabre.
In "Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos", a pantheon of horror and fantasy's finest authors pays tribute to the master with a collection of original stories in the fearsome Lovecraft tradition: "The Call of Cthulhu" by Lovecraft; "Jerusalem's Lot" by Stephen King; "Notebook Found in a Deserted House" by Robert Bloch; "Cold Print" by Ramsey Campbell; "The Freshman" by Philip Jose Farmer — and seventeen more blood-curdling tales.
