"THE OLDEST AND STRONGEST EMOTION OF MANKIND IS FEAR. AND THE OLDEST AND STRONGEST KIND OF FEAR IS FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN." – H. P. LOVECRAFT

This is the collection that true fans of horror fiction have been waiting for: sixteen of H.P. Lovecraft's most horrifying visions:

THE CALL OF CTHULHU – The first story in the infamous Cthulhu mythos – a creature spawned in the stars brings a menace of unimaginable evil to threaten all Mankind.

THE DUNWICH HORROR – An evil Man's desire to perform an unspeakable ritual leads him in search of the fabled text of The Necronomicon

THE COLOUR OUT OF SPACE – A horror from the skies – far worse than any nuclear fallout – transforms a man into a monster.

THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH – Rising from the depths of the sea, an unspeakable horror engulfs a quiet New England town.

THE SHADOW OUT OF TIME – Lovecraft's masterpiece – the shocking revelation of the mysterious forces that hold all mankind in their fearsome grip.
