By H.P. Lovecraft
Introduction by Harlan Ellison
Back Cover Text
Descend into the nerve-shattering realm of America’s master of horror, H. P.
Lovecraft—to a dank place where gloomy maelstroms await the unwary, where the unnatural is
surpassed only by the unspeakable, and where all pleasure is perverse. Take a
chance. . . . All you can lose is your sanity.
PLUS ELEVEN OTHER MACABRE TALES OF PURE TERROR
- The Doom That Came to Sarnath—The magnificent city had wealth beyond measure, but
no riches could save it from a ghastly day of reckoning.
- The Shunned House—He vowed to rid the odious structure of the brooding horror that
clung to it, but evil would not go gently.
- The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath—Desperate to understand his tormenting vision,
one man begins a forbidden and nightmarish journey.
- The Tomb—The old Hyde family crypt held a gruesome attraction for a boy, until he
communed with the dead and learned their secrets.
- The Shadow Out of Time—The quest to understand the devouring force that once
possessed a scholar leads a man to the other side of the world, where all will be revealed in one
hideous, unholy night.
