The Other Gods
and More Unearthly Tales

By H. P. Lovecraft
With an Introduction by Jeffrey Andrew Weinstock

Back Cover Text

Collected in this volume are spine-tingling tales showing us that below the ground and at the top of mountains peaks lurk nameless gods and ghouls, both powerful and horrific. In cemeteries and desert wastes and swampy bogs, the evidence of past civilizations remains waiting to be uncovered, ominously portending mankind’s own inglorious future conclusion. Even more disconcerting in H. P. Lovecraft’s fictional world is that one need not even leave home to come face-to-face with the cataclysmic revelation of man’s insignificance. Monsters not only skulk in underground crypts and exotic foreign lands, but swarm all around us, just out of sight.

Among the creepy tales included in this valume are “He,” “The Moon-Bog,” “The Other Gods,” and “Polaris.”


Howard Phillips Lovecraft was born in Rhode Island in 1890. When he was three, his father was admitted to an insane asylum, and by the time Lovecraft was eight he suffered his own “near-breakdown.” At the age of seven, he had begun writing short horror tales.
