H.P. Lovecraft is best known for his tales of cosmic horror, in which unnameable nightmares torment the limits of human consciousness. This mastery of weird and unspeakable terror is underpinned by the writer’s sizeable contribution to Gothic fiction.
This new collection of Lovecraft’s stories is the first to concentrate on his Gothic writing and includes tales from the beginning to the very end of the author’s career.
The writer’s weird vision mixes brilliantly with the trappings of earlier Gothic horror to form innovative mosaics of frightful fiction that will long haunt the reader’s subconscious.
About the Author: H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) achieved comparatively little fame during the course of his life compared with his widespread notoriety today as a master of weird and gothic fiction. From his home in Rhode Island he penned hundreds of short stories for pulp magazines and created entire fictional universes with their own pantheon of gods (including Cthulhu, with which he is perhaps most associated today).
