Summary

A definitive collection of stories from the unrivaled master of twentieth-century horror in a Penguin Classics Deluxe edition with cover art by Travis Louie. "I think it is beyond doubt that H. P. Lovecraft has yet to be surpassed as the twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale." -Stephen King Frequently imitated and widely influential, Howard Philips Lovecraft reinvented the horror genre in the 1920s, discarding ghosts and witches and instead envisioning mankind as a tiny outpost of dwindling sanity in a chaotic and malevolent universe. S. T. Joshi, Lovecraft's preeminent interpreter, presents a selection of the master's fiction, from the early tales of nightmares and madness such as "The Outsider" to the overpowering cosmic terror of "The Call of Cthulhu." More than just a collection of terrifying tales, this volume reveals the development of Lovecraft's mesmerizing narrative style and establishes him as a canonical- and visionary-American writer.

Author Biography

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 wide influence on subsequent writing in the field.
S. T. Joshi is the editor of the Penguin Classics anthology American Supernatural Tales.
Travis Louie's work has appeared in magazines such as Hi Fructose and in art galleries in the U.S., Germany, and Italy.
