Eldritch Tales: A Miscellany of the Macabre - H. P. Lovecraft

Following the phenomenal success of Necronomicon, its companion volume brings together Lovecraft’s remaining major stories plus his weird poetry, a number of obscure revisions, and some notable nonfiction, including the seminal critical essay Supernatural Horror in Literature

Gathering together in chronological order the rest of Lovecraft's rarely seen but extraordinary short fiction, this collection includes the entirety of the long-out-of-print collection of 36 sonnets "Fungi from Yoggoth." Howard Phillips Lovecraft died at the age of 47, but in his short life he turned out dozens of stories which changed the face of horror. His extraordinary imagination spawned both the Elder God Cthulhu and his eldritch cohorts, and the strangely compelling town of Innsmouth, all of which are featured within these pages. Stephen Jones, one of the world's foremost editors of dark fiction, completes the Lovecraft story in his extensive afterword, and award-winning artist Les Edwards provides numerous illustrations for this must-have collection.
