At the Mountains of Madness
and Other Works of “Science Fiction”

By H.P. Lovecraft

Back Cover Text

“His shrieks were confined to the repetition of
a single mad word of all too obvious source:
Tekeli-li! Tekeli-li

When Professor William Dyer, a geologist from Miskatonic University, investigates an abandoned, hieroglyphed city forged with weird non-human geometry in the ice-wastes of Antarctica, he uncovers evidence of an ancient and cataclysmic war waged between races of malignant aliens: long before the advent of the human race, the Elder Ones battled for supremacy with the Star-spawn of Cthulhu, leaving behind a lurking protoplasm of unimaginable cosmic evil.

At The Mountains of Madness is a crucial work in Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, the author’s first interpretation of his occult paroxysms in science-fictional terms, dating dark entities back to the primordial aeons of the Earth’s existence.

This new edition also includes Lovecraft’s two other major “science fiction” (or “science fantasy”) stories, The Whisperer In Darkness and The Shadow Out Of Time, plus the related poem-cycle of zodiacal alienation Fungi From Yuggoth, and a new introduction by DM Mitchell (editor, The Starry Wisdom).
