Introduction by Harlan Ellison.

Descend into the nerve-shattering realm of America's master of horror, H. P. Lovecraft – to a dank place where gloomy maelstroms await the unwary, where the unnatural is surpassed only by the unspeakable, and where all pleasure is perverse. Take a chance... All you can lose is your sanity.

The Doom That Came to Sarnath – The magnificent city had wealth beyond measure, but no riches could save it from a ghastly day of reckoning.

The Shunned House – He vowed to rid the odious structure of the brooding horror that clung to it, but evil would not go gently.

The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath – Desperate to understand his tormenting vision, one man begins a forbidden and nightmarish journey.

The Tomb – The old Hyde family crypt held a gruesome attraction for a boy, until he communed with the dead and learned their secrets.

The Shadow Out of Time – The quest to understand the devouring force that once possessed a scholar leads a man to the other side of the world, where all will be revealed in one hideous, unholy night.
