Annotated H. P. Lovecraft
Stephen King wrote that H.P. Lovecraft "has yet to be surpassed as the twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale." Now enthusiasts and newcomers alike have the opportunity to enjoy five of Lovecraft's best tales in a unique package. Included are four short stories of unrivaled terror--"The Rats in the Walls, " "The Colour Out of Space, " and "The Dunwich Horror"--as well as the complete text of his eerie novella of ancient alien life in the Arctic, "At the Mountains of Madness."
Augmented by hundreds of fascinating annotations by scholar S.T. Joshi, and illustrated with photographs and artwork depicting Lovecraft's life and work, this rich and varied volume is destined to become, like its author, a classic.
