The Best of H.P. Lovecraft:
Tales that Truly Terrify
from the Master of Horror

By H. P. Lovecraft

Back Cover Text

“Lovecraft opened the way for me,
as he had done for others before me.”
Stephen King

H.P. Lovecraft is one of the most influential writers in the history of horror fiction. His style is unique, mixing fantasy, science fiction and horror to make truly frightening tales that have scared readers silly for nearly a century. His characters inhabit a world of strange places, ancient gods, and above all unspeakable horrors.
     His gift for making the reader feel genuinely uncomfortable is apparent in this carefully selected collection of fantastic stories, from the short but stifling “The Rats in the Walls” to the indescribable denouement of “The Case of Charles Dexter Ward”. His greatest Cthulhu stories are included as well, making this collection an ideal introduction to this little-known literary genius, as well as a handsome addition to any core fan’s dark library.

“One of the twentieth century’s most original writers.”
Arthur C. Clarke
