Includes the short stories: The Alchemist and The Nameless City
H.P. Lovecraft is considered one of the most influential horror and fantasy writers of the 20th century. His work, which is frequently compared to the likes of Edgar Allan Poe, explored the idea that life is incomprehensible to human minds and the universe is fundamentally alien.
This volume showcases arguably some of Lovecraft's best work. Imprisoned with the Pharaohs was originally written for the world-famous escape artist Harry Houdini and was published under Houdini's name in the magazine Weird Tales.
This release also contains an example of some of Lovecraft's earliest work, including The Alchemist, which was written when he was only 18, and The Nameless City, the first story to investigate the powerful Cthulu Mythos for which Lovecraft is famous.
