Back Cover Text
Multi-eyed protoplasmic entities, flesh-eating ghouls, animate corpses, time-traveling body
snatchers and, yes, even huge albino penguins. These are some of the bizarre creatures that
populate the universe created by American horror author H. P. Lovecraft. Lovecraft has influenced
many of today’s most famous writers and artists, including Stephen King, Guillermo Del Toro,
and H. R. Giger
This collection includes three selections from the Cthulhu Mythos: the novella At the
Mountains of Madness, which is often considered Lovecraft’s masterpiece; “The Thing
on the Doorstep”; and “The Shadow Out of Time.” In addition to including all the
chilling “cyclopean vistas,” monstrous abominations, and appalling transformations,
this collection also showcases his fantasy writing in stories such as “The Cats of
Ulthar,” “The Silver Key,” and notably The Dream-Quest of Unknown
