The Shadow over Innsmouth

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

Dustjacket Text

Hm. As I sit down to write a bit about The Shadow Over Innsmouth I recall a headline I read not twenty minutes ago on Google News—“Study shows humans evolved from cartilaginous fishes”. Well of course it does! Took them long enough to figure that out! Old Zadok Allen could have told them that. Hell anybody with a bit of Innsmouth “larnin’” could have. Another epic tale in Lovecraft’s oeuvre, this one is also packed with “mythos” history and a narrator who finds himself on an inexorable path toward ultimate horror. What else is new? The bus to Innsmouth only goes one way, even if you escape alive. The future is murky and dire, but what do you expect for a race evolved from cartilaginous fishes?
Pete Von Sholly
