Dust Jacket Text
In the 1920s and ’30s, H.P. Lovecraft pioneered a new type of weird fiction that fused
elements of supernatural horror with the concepts of visionary science fiction.
Lovecraft’s tales of cosmic horror revolutionized modern horror fiction and earned him the
reputation of the most influential American writer of weird tales since Edgar Allan Poe.
This omnibus collects for the first time in a single volume all of
Lovecraft’s groundbreaking fiction: “The Call of Cthulhu,” “The Dreams
in the Witch House,” “The Haunter of the Dark,” “At the Mountains of
Madness,” “The Shadow out of Time,” “The Shadow over Innsmouth,”
the full-length novels The Case of Charles Dexter Ward and The Dream Quest of Unknown
Kadath, and many others.
