CROSS FRONTIERS OF FEAR INTO CHILL REALMS OF TERROR
The strange and terrible universe of H.P. Lovecraft is yours in these tales of dread secrets, strange beings, and the mind-wrenching horror that lurks beyond the borders of experience.
These stories, left uncompleted by H.P. Lovecraft at the time of his death, were completed by his longtime friend and fellow-writer, August Derleth.
This century's greatest master of weird fantasy – creator of an eldritch dimension of horror, swarming with such entities as dread Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth, Hastur, lurkers in the earth or beyond the barriers of time.
August William Derleth (1909–1971) was an American writer and anthologist. Though best remembered as the first publisher of the writings of H. P. Lovecraft, and for his own contributions to the Cthulhu Mythos genre of horror, Derleth was a prolific writer in several genres, including regional writings, historical fiction, poetry, detective fiction,science fiction, and biography.
August Derleth, a Guggenheim Fellow in 1938, considered his most serious work to be his ambitious Sac Prairie Saga, a series of fiction, historical fiction, poetry, and non-fiction naturalist works designed to memorialize life in the Wisconsin he knew. Derleth was a pioneering naturalist and conservationist in his writing.
