“The Shadow Over Innsmouth” was the only one of H.P. Lovecraft’s stories to be published in a book and not a periodical during his lifetime. It has become an important part of the Cthulhu Mythos and influenced both film adaptations and video games. In 1994 an anthology named The Shadow Over Innsmouth was published featuring stories inspired by the Innsmouth lore written by various Lovecraftian authors.
