Step into a nightmare world of hellish horror! Crawling, clawing, sliming horror, seeping from the night-tipped pen of that Grand Master of heart-stopping supernatural terror – H. P. Lovecraft.
Sample a dark universe peopled with gods best forgotten and strange races best left undiscovered. Shudder in the dank breath of an ages-old evil blowing icily from the dusk-shrouded eons of time before history. Savour, in this classic collection of masterpieces of the weird and eerie, the grave-fresh tang of total fear. Here is horror to set your skin crawling from your spine's based to your scalp – and back again.
"A real collector's piece for connoisseurs of the unusual! Lovers of the macabre, the sinister and the uncanny, take note." – The Guardian
