The Case of Charles Dexter Ward

By H.P. Lovecraft
Illustrated by Pete Von Sholly
Introduction by S.T. Joshi

Dustjacket Text

In The Case of Charles Dexter Ward Lovecraft puts forth one of the most horrifying concepts of his career—a trio of grave-robbers are systematically rifling the tombs of the world’s most brilliant men—men who also possessed occult and arcane secrets thought to be long lost. In the hands of these monstrous ghouls, the dead are resurrected from bones and dust and extorted endlessly for their secrets! It’s the story also of a hapless young man who finds he is just a pawn in this deadly game and a doctor who discovers the plot and finds he is the only man who can fight it.
Pete Von Sholly
