This collection includes a selection of H. P. Lovecraft's finest chilling tales. Lovecraft's most famous monster is Cthulu, a gargantuan beast which has been lying dormant for millions of years but rises up and forces mankind to recognise its fundamental ignorance, powerlessness and insignificance. Lovecraft is an accomplished master of suspense, releasing information slowly and deliberately through fragmented first-person accounts so that the full impact of the awful truth is reserved until the end. Each of these stories masterfully plays with our fears and conjures up a mounting sense of horror, paranoia and dread.

Table of Contents
Born in Providence, Rhode Island in 1890, Lovecraft was self-educated and lived in his birthplace all his life, working as a freelance writer, journalist, and ghostwriter. His best work - including some sixty or so short stories - was published from 1923 onwards in the pulp magazine Weird Tales. He died in 1937, in poverty and virtually unknown; today he is recognised as one of the great masters of horror fiction.
