The Transition of H.P. Lovecraft:
The Road to Madness

By H.P. Lovecraft


Back Cover Text

One of the most influential practitioners of American horror, H.P. Lovecraft inspired the work of Stephen King, Anne Rice, Clive Barker, and many more. As he perfected his mastery of the macabre, his works developed from seminal fragments into acknowledged masterpieces of terror. This volume traces his chilling career and includes:
IMPRISONED WITH THE PHARAOHS—Harry Houdini seeks to reveal the demons that inhabit the Egyptian night.
AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS—An unsuspecting expedition uncovers a city of untold terror, buried beneath an Antarctic wasteland.
Plus, for the first time in any Del Rey edition:
HERBERT WEST—REANIMATOR—Mad experiments yield hideous results in this, the inspiration for the cult film Re-Animator.
COOL AIR—An icy apartment hides secrets no man dares unlock.
THE TERRIBLE OLD MAN—The intruders seek a fortune but find only death!
