The Lurking Fear and Other Stories

By H.P. Lovecraft


Back Cover Text

One of Lovecraft’s most famous stories. “A doomed Massachusetts fishing town whose population is obscenely corrupted by intermingling with a race of fiendish undersea creatures. Learning all this, the narrator attempts to flee. On the outskirts of town, he looks back and sees his pursuers ‘in a limitless stream...surging inhumanly through the spectral moonlight in a grotesque, malignant saraband of fantastic nightmare.’”
—Time Magazine

“an entire upstate New York clan degenerates into thunder-crazed, shocking creatures with the hideous habits of man-eating moles.”
—Time Magazine
