Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre

by H.P. Lovecraft

"H.P. Lovecraft has yet to be surpassed as the twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale."--Stephen King

"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

This is the collection that true fans of horror fiction must have: sixteen of H.P. Lovecraft's most horrifying visions, including:

The Call of Cthulu: The first story in the infamous Cthulhu mythos--a creature spawned in the stars brings a menace of unimaginable evil to threaten all mankind.

The Dunwich Horror: An evil man's desire to perform an unspeakable ritual leads him in search of the fabled text of The Necronomicon.

The Colour Out of Space: A horror from the skies--far worse than any nuclear fallout--transforms a man into a monster.

The Shadow Over Innsmouth: Rising from the depths of the sea, an unspeakable horror engulfs a quiet New England town.

Plus twelve more terrifying tales!
