P Lovecraft's reputation has grown tremendously over the decades and he is now commonly regarded as one of the most important horror writers of the 20th Century, exerting an influence that is widespread, though often indirect.'

This volume will introduce a whole new generation of readers to his unforgettable fiction. H.

P Lovecraft's tales of the tentacled Elder God Cthulhu and his pantheon of unpronounceable fellow gods were written mainly for the pulp magazines of the 1920s and '30s. These astonishing tales blend elements of horror, science fiction and cosmic horror, the idea that those who delve into incomprehensible secrets and try raising the gods, risk not just their lives, but their sanity.

Gathered together in this handsome leather-look tome are all H.

P Lovecraft's tales of terror, including the complete Cthulhu Mythos cycle, in their original, unedited forms.

Howard Philips Lovecraft (1890-1937) is probably the most important and influential author of supernatural fiction of the 20th century. A life-long resident of Providence, R.I., many of his tales are set in the fear-haunted towns of an imaginary area of Massachusetts, or in the cosmic vistas that exist beyond space and time. Since his untimely death, he has become acknowledged as a master of fantasy fiction, and a mainstream American writer second only to Edgar Allan Poe, while his relatively small body of work has influenced countless imitators and formed the basis of a world-wide industry of books, games and movies based on his concepts.

Reviews for Necronomicon: The Best Weird Tales of H P Lovecraft

You need to read him - he's where the darkness starts--NEIL GAIMAN Preposterous, overblown, absurd in every way - yet with an originality that looks more powerful and convincing each time I dip into it.--PHILIP PULLMAN Lovecraft opened the way for me, as he had done for others before me--STEPHEN KING
