Howard Lovecraft is undoubtedly one of the most influential writers in the history of horror fiction, with Stephen King acknowledging that 'Lovecraft opened the way for me, as he had done for others before me' and Arthur C Clarke proclaiming him 'One of the twentieth century's most original writers. Lovecraft's "Herbert West – Reanimator", was turned into a series of movies that started with the 1985 film "Re-Animator" and rolled on through "Bride of Re-Animator" in 1991 and "Beyond Re-Animator" in 2003. Included in this mammoth anthology of Lovecraft horror are some of his scariest stories such as "The Call of Cthulhu" (a terrifying tentacled alien god); "Herbert West – Reanimator", about a man who can bring people back from the dead; "The Rats in the Walls" (don't even go there); and, "The Dunwich Horror", among many others. Lovecraft claimed to base his stories on the strange and disturbing dreams from which he suffered. Don't dare dip into this book unless you want to share in Lovecraft's nightmares!
