Back Cover Text

WHERE IS THE CITY OF ARKHAM LOCATED?

WHAT STORY FEATURES HIS OWN CAT?
WHERE IS THE NECRONOMICON FIRST MENTIONED?
WHAT IS THE NARRATOR’S NAME IN AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS?

H.P. Lovecraft, acknowledged master of the horror genre, left a legacy of great short fiction. Unsurpassed in their richness of imagination and range of knowledge, these chilling tales are a brilliant writer’s creative response to a world in which he was often an outsider. Now readers have an opportunity to scrutinize and further appreciate the greatness of Lovecraft’s strange genius as Lovecraft scholar S.T. Joshi annotates, for the first time, some of Lovecraft’s most famous tales.
     S.T. Joshi’s text illuminates the more obscure references throughout Lovecraft’s writings, from an explanation of the chemicals referred to in “The Dunwich Horror” to the definition of one of his favorite adjectives, “eldritch.” Readers will also discover which story details are wholly fabricated by H.P. Lovecraft and which are taken from real life, such as the “Moodus Noises” and “Garden of the Gods.”
     Generously illustrated, this remarkable work lets us fully appreciate the awesome details of the author’s imagined reality while it helps deepen our enjoyment of the unrivaled master of the weird.
