At the heart of these stories, as with all the best of Lovecraft's work, is the belief that the Earth was once inhabited by powerful and evil gods, just waiting for the chance to recolonise their planet. Cthulhu is one such god, lurking deep beneath the sea until called into being by cult followers who - like all humans - know not what they do. It is because of these dark, mythic tales with their terrified awareness of the limits of Man's knowledge, that H.P. Lovecraft is one of the most influential American writers.

    " For something so often refered to as the greatest of cult horror, was disappointed. Might need to reread it to be sure but haven't really felt the pull... "

    " Disappointing. I think HP Lovecraft's writing pales compared to the likes of Poe. I couldn't finish the book, as it was becoming a chore to pick up... "

    " No other writer can inject such a thick air of nightmarish uneasiness into his stories like Lovecraft. The stories are all equally as original and creative as they are terrifying. Highly recommended for someone who needs a little OOMPH in whatever they're reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George | 4/20/2011

    " Loved it. Better and more modern than Poe. It's amazing how this guy created the landscape for everything we consider scary these days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 3/28/2011

    " This is typically Lovecraft - what it doesn't tell you is just about as bad as what it does. I'd recommend this to anyoen who likes Stephen King, or anything else by Lovecraft. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jess | 3/23/2011

    " Loved this collection! The footnotes in the back were fascinating to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 3/15/2011

    " I probably should have read the Cthulhu stories in order. This was good, but I felt like I was missing some context. I will piece it all together eventually! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 3/4/2011

    " Creepy. The only negative in this edition was that the editor often would ruin the story's ending in his notes. "

About the Author

H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) was born in Providence, Rhode Island, where he lived most of his life. His relatively small corpus of work—three short novels and about sixty short stories—has nevertheless exercised a broad influence on subsequent writing in the field. In fact, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the twentieth century.
