The Case of Charles Dexter Ward
------=-O-=------

By H.P. Lovecraft

Back Cover Text

“OGTHROD AI’F GEB’L—EE’H
YOG-SOTHOTH ’NGAH’NG
AI’Y ZHRO!”

A nameless terror surges through centuries to engulf the soul of Charles Dexter Ward, a brilliant New England antiquarian. Evil spirits, malefic gods whose memory lives on in whispered legends and fear-stricken superstitions, still lurk in vile catacombs beneath the surface of a blighted land. Ward is driven to unleash these loathsome horrors upon a defenceless world, possessed by the demonic shade of his ancestor Joseph Curwen, a warlock steeped in the blackest arts of magic. Now Ward too must master these obscene rituals, and pay the price in blood. Human blood.

The Case of Charles Dexter Ward remains the only full-length work of fiction by HP Lovecraft, the master of 20th century horror. It has inspired such classic horror films as Roger Corman’s The Haunted Palace and Lucio Fulci’s The Beyond.

This new edition also includes Lovecraft’s rare History of the Necronomicon, plus a new introduction by DM Mitchell (editor, The Starry Wisdom).
