As a man surveys the countryside for the construction of a reservoir, he comes across a stretch of barren farmland leeched of life. An aged survivor of the town tells him the tale of a rural farmer's family and their path to madness and unspeakable horror.

Lovecraft considered The Colour Out of Space to be the best of all his stories. Originally appearing in the September 1927 issue of Amazing Stories, it is one of his most frequently anthologized tales. Download and start listening now!

    " Stupendous collection! Horror= is terrifying and scifi is genius! 1st few stories are better than latter. "

    " This collection of short stories is really amazing and incredibly frightening. I've never read anything as scary as the first story. I almost didnt sleep at night because of it. Full of description of frightening grotesque elements that are unknown to humans. This is a very recommended read for people who love the horror genre, though there is one thing that I didnt like in the story which is the repetition, Lovecraft repeats a lot of his words, so this kind of lets you think less of his writing. It bothered me:/ "

    " I don't know what it was, but I just couldn't get into this. There were some beautiful images created, but I really just couldn't get into it. Sorry Lovecraft lovers. "

    " Lovecraft is the master "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carlos Arteaga | 11/15/2013

    " As all Lovecraftian books, there's a mystery that does caught your attention, and wakes up your imagination as you don't know what it is exactly. Is a very good short story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan | 10/29/2013

    " Lovecraft may not write the best dialogue, but he's one of the best at creating a bleak and terrifying page-turner. The three stories in this volume are all good examples. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia | 10/21/2013

    " Wondrously spooky and certainly a fitting night-time read. H.P. Lovecraft is truly awesome at arousing suspense and terror (and I'm feeling somewhat anxious about falling asleep)! A nice wee collection of stories; will definitely read again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suellen | 10/6/2013

    " I cannot recall even one story of this book, so you can imagine it did not make an impression. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chucho Enriquez | 7/31/2013

    " Como especialista de la imagen, no hay nada mas aterrador que te digan que exsiste... Un color que noe s ningun color conocido. Simplemente eso es aterrador "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chuck Heintzelman | 7/30/2013

    " A great tale. I remember reading somewhere that it was part of Stephen King's inspiration for Tommyknockers. I had to laugh as I read the passage of carefully constructed dialogue, short bursts of words separated by ellipses, that was an example of bad dialog in Stephen King's book On Writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris The Story Reading Ape | 4/21/2013

    " Like all of Lovecraft's stories, this one rambled a bit, but eventually got to the crux of the matter, just in time for the story to end, thankfully..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 1/19/2013

    " Lovecraft's writing reads like ESL individuals, who tend to sound formal and oddly poetic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 VH.G.P. | 12/18/2012

    " Una de las tantas supremas narraciones del maestro del terror cosmico H.P. Lovecraft. La historia se centra en una fuerza desconocida espacial que engulle todo a su paso, dejando un color plateado anunciando una muerte imparable! Altamente recomendada para los amantes del genero de horror. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matija | 7/16/2012

    " My first Lovecraft stories. I need some more. Perfect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 12/21/2011

    " Better than the others, strangely enough. I could see it being turned into a pretty creepy movie. It doesn't shy away from description like other lovecraft and I think it benefits. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 10/27/2011

    " This is one of Lovecraft's better books. The plot is very unique and the imagery he weaves regarding the deteriorating landscape is exceptional. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mario | 2/13/2011

    " Entre los relatos que contiene está "Herbert West, reanimador." una de mis favoritas historias cortas del autor. "

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.
