The ideal gift for fans of H. P. Lovecraft and horror classics, this handsome deluxe slipcase edition contains nine of the most popular stories from one of the founding writers of horror fiction. Stories included are: Dagon, Herbert West-Reanimator, The Call of Cthulhu, The Dunwich Horror, The Whisperer in Darkness, At the Mountains of Madness, The Shadow Over Innsmouth, The Shadow Out of Time, and The Haunter. Chills and thrills abound between the pages of this book as the stories show Lovecraft at the height of his powers in the telling of these horror and fantasy tales. The slipcase features a full-color portrait of the horror master, and the enclosed book embossed in silver lettering on red cloth, for a classic look and feel.
"Lovecraft is generally ruthless when it comes to the fate of his characters...The source of the horror and fearsome power in these tales are terrible entities: the shoggoth, Cthulhu, the great Race, the great Old Ones - all of them defeated by the earth itself...This collection is a chance to regard these stories in a new light, with a new awareness."
