Back Cover Text

“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.”

—H.P. Lovecraft

Welcome to the world of H.P. Lovecraft, the undisputed master of terror. His work has inspired countless nightmares, and this collection of some of his most chilling stories is likely to inspire even more.

Cool Air—An icy apartment hides secrets no man dares unlock.
The Case of Charles Dexter Ward—Ward delves into the black arts and resurrects the darkest evil from beyond the grave.
The Terrible Old Man—The intruders seek a fortune but find only death.
Herbert West—Reanimator—Mad experiments yield hideous results in this bloodcurdling tale, the inspiration for the cult film Re-Animator.
The Shadow Over Innsmouth—A small fishing town’s population is obscenely corrupted by a race of fiendish undersea creatures.
The Lurking Fear—An upstate New York clan degenerates into thunder-crazed molelike creatures with a taste for human flesh.
