Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following the phenomenal success of Necronomicon, its companion volume brings together Lovecrafts remaining major stories plus his weird poetry, a number of obscure revisions, and some notable nonfiction, including the seminal critical essay Supernatural Horror in Literature
Gathering together in chronological order the rest of Lovecraft's rarely seen but extraordinary short fiction, this collection includes the entirety of the long-out-of-print collection of 36 sonnets "Fungi from Yoggoth." Howard Phillips Lovecraft died at the age of 47, but in his short life he turned out dozens of stories which changed the face of horror. His extraordinary imagination spawned both the Elder God Cthulhu and his eldritch cohorts, and the strangely compelling town of Innsmouth, all of which are featured within these pages. Stephen Jones, one of the world's foremost editors of dark fiction, completes the Lovecraft story in his extensive afterword, and award-winning artist Les Edwards provides numerous illustrations for this must-have collection.

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. Les Edwards is an illustrator known for his work in the horror, science fiction, and fantasy genres who has won the British Fantasy Society award for Best Artist seven times, and was awarded the World Fantasy Award in 2008. He has done numerous illustrations for Robert E. Howard's Conan stories and Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, and for books by such authors as Anne McCaffrey, Frank Herbert, and Jack Vance. Stephen Jones is an acclaimed horror anthologist and the winner of three World Fantasy Awards, four Horror Writers Association Bram Stoker Awards, and three International Horror Guild Awards as well as being a 20-time recipient of the British Fantasy Award and a Hugo Award nominee.
