Twelve chilling tales from the unrivalled master of the fantastic and the macabre.
Howard Phillips Lovecraft's unique contribution to American literature was a melding of traditional supernaturalism with the emerging genre of science fiction in the 1920s. This new Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics edition brings together a dozen of the Master's tales - from his early short stories 'Under The Pyramids' (originally ghost written for Harry Houdini) and 'The Music Of Erich Zann' through his more fully developed works 'The Dunwich Horror', 'The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward', and 'At the Mountains Of Madness'.
This book presents the definitive corrected texts of the work, along with Lovecraft critic and biographer ST Joshi's illuminating introduction and his notes to each story.
