The Zombie Stories of H.P. Lovecraft

By H.P. Lovecraft

From the Back Cover

Joyce Carol Oates, Stephen King, and other experts on horror fiction deem H.P. Lovecraft the master teller of weird tales. These six chilling stories—all published between 1921 and 1933—offer compelling journeys into the land of the undead.

The collection begins with “The Outsider,” the tale of a recluse whose overwhelming loneliness emboldens him to seek out human contact. Subsequent stories include “Herbert West—Reanimator,” written as a satire of Frankenstein and used as the source for a popular horror film; “In the Vault,” in which an undertaker experiences supernatural revenge; “Cool Air,” an account of a doctor’s fanatical obsession with defying death; and “Pickman’s Model,” focusing on an artist’s gallery of nightmares. “The Thing on the Doorstep” concludes the compilation with the compelling tale of a man whose body is preyed upon by a spirit that refuses to die.
