The Shadow out of Time

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

Dustjacket Text

If you are reading The Shadow Out of Time for the first time I hope it’s one of those experiences you’ll never forget, as it was for me. The sheer scope of earth’s history, pre-history and the projections of a bleak future is staggering and, as usual with Lovecraft when he goes all “cosmic”, the human race is just a bit player in an epic pageant of life as it moves through the universe. Even our planet is only a stepping stone for the Great Race. And of course there’s a monstrous undercurrent of ill wind and ill will stirring in hidden ruins where the mind-destroying truth is written and where it waits and waits for our hapless hero to stumble upon it!
Pete Von Sholly
