The Best Weird Tales of H. P. Lovecraft

By H. P. Lovecraft
Edited with an Afterword by Stephen Jones and illustrated by Les Edwards

From the End Material

HOWARD PHILLIPS LOVECRAFT was born in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1890. A life-long antiquarian who had an interest in astronomy, his early work was initially published in the amateur press. His tales of horror and the macabre did not see print professionally until the early 1920s, and even then the bulk of his work appeared in such pulp magazines as Weird Tales, along with a handful of hardcover anthologies. A voluminous letter-writer, the only book of his fiction published during his lifetime was the privately printed Shadow Over Innsmouth (1936). Following his untimely death in 1937, Lovecraft’s work was initially kept in print by Arkham House publishers and today his fiction – notably the influential Cthulhu Mythos – is known all over the world and forms the basis for countless books, movies, comics, collectibles and role-playing games.

STEPHEN JONES is one of Britain’s most acclaimed anthologists of horror and dark fantasy. He has nearly 100 books to his credit, and has won numerous awards. You can visit his web site at http://www.herebedragons.co.uk/jones
