By H. P. Lovecraft
Back Cover Text
“Lovecraft opened the way for me,
as he had done for others before
H.P. Lovecraft is one of the most influential writers in the history of horror fiction. His style
is unique, mixing fantasy, science fiction and horror to make truly frightening tales that have
scared readers silly for nearly a century. His characters inhabit a world of strange places,
ancient gods, and above all unspeakable horrors.
His gift for making the reader feel genuinely uncomfortable is apparent in this
carefully selected collection of fantastic stories, from the short but stifling “The Rats
in the Walls” to the indescribable denouement of “The Case of Charles Dexter
Ward”. His greatest Cthulhu stories are included as well, making this collection an ideal
introduction to this little-known literary genius, as well as a handsome addition to any core
fan’s dark library.
“One of the twentieth century’s most original writers.”
The Best of H.P. Lovecraft: Tales that Truly Terrify from the Master of Horror. By H.P.
Lovecraft. London, UK: Prion Books; 2012; ISBN 978-1-85375-881-2; softcover; 684 pages.
