Crawling Chaos, Volume One: Selected Weird Fiction: 1917-1927

by H. P. Lovecraft
Release date: May 2012
Type: speculative fiction

Tags: cthulhu mythos

H. P. Lovecraft, one of the great obsessive writers of the 20th century, naturally chose the pulp genre of "weird horror" in which to exorcise his acute anatomical alienation and existential torment. Within the matrix of his grotesque yet complex mythology, Lovecraft was able to conjure a hideous universe lying just beyond our own; his relentless style and language forging a convoluted, midnight-purple literary form which ultimately achieves a veritable "pornography" of horror: the accumulation and repetition of his demonic visions climaxing in orgasms of cosmic revulsion. Crawling Chaos comprises a chronological collection of this unique writer's best work; from his distinctive collaborative pieces, prose-poems and early tales of the gruesome and bizarre, through to the maturation and efflorescence of his personal cosmology, the Cthulhu Mythos. This new expanded edition, published in two volumes, has been enhanced by stories not previously included; Volume One includes the bonus stories "Herbert West, Re-Animator" and "The Shunned House." With an introduction by acclaimed author Colin Wilson.
