Introduction by China Miéville

Long acknowledged as a master of nightmarish visions, H. P. Lovecraft established the genuineness and dignity of his own pioneering fiction in 1931 with his quintessential work of supernatural horror, At the Mountains of Madness. The deliberately told and increasingly chilling recollection of an Antarctic expedition’s uncanny discoveries–and their encounter with untold menace in the ruins of a lost civilization–is a milestone of macabre literature.

This exclusive new edition, presents Lovecraft’s masterpiece in fully restored form, and includes his acclaimed scholarly essay “Supernatural Horror in Literature.” This is essential reading for every devotee of classic terror.

Synopsis:

This edition contains the definitive, restored edition of Lovecraft's masterpiece of terror, At the Mountains of Madness, published in paperback for the first time ever, as well as his definitive essay Supernatural Horror in Literature, called by Robert Bloch (author of Psycho) one of the finest essays on horror fiction ever written. Lovecraft has inspired countless authors, filmmakers, and readers for nearly a century, and this classic of horror will show readers why.

Stacia V, October 25, 2014 (view all comments by Stacia V)
Up to now, I had avoided reading Lovecraft, mainly because I thought he probably fell into the 'cheesy' &/or grisly horror genre. True, he writes horror, but I was very pleasantly surprised at how erudite his writing is. I know he is traditionally well-loved among geeky circles & now I see why -- his writing is smart, filled with scientific references (making the horror of his stories seem scientifically authenticated), & quite compelling. I thoroughly enjoyed his extension of Poe's Pym novel (to which he makes direct reference) & thought he brought the story through a very satisfying arc & ending. Definitely recommended, esp. if you've read Poe's Pym or are looking for a sort-of 1920s/1930s throwback story of adventure/science/horror. I plan to read more of Lovecraft's work.
