The Curse of Yig
(and Selected Ghastly Ghostwritings)

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

Dustjacket Text

In this volume are five stories that really belong in the Lovecraft canon, even though they have been presented previously as “revisions”. From Lovecraft’s letters we know that he wrote these stories from ridiculously scrappy notes and/or some very poor prose and that he wrote (or re-wrote) them fresh from beginning to end himself. Many of HPL’s “mythos” creations appear in these tales and there is much to enjoy for fans who think they have read everything by HPL and are looking for more. Oddly, at least one “revision” has been presented by Arkham House as a Lovecraft story (Under the Pyramids) and many have not. We have already addressed The Mound in a previous book and these others fit comfortably along side that gem as more real Lovecraft fiction.
—Pete Von Sholly
