Acknowledged master of the macabre, H.P. Lovecraft here collaborates with August Derleth to produce 16 unsettling tales of supernatural terrors, demons of the mind, ghostly apparitions and ghastly experiments. Awash in atmosphere and peopled by shadowy, sinister figures, these stories will delight fans of macabre horror, Gothic fantasy, and just plain good writing.
