Synopsis

WIKIPEDIA says: 'H.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.'

H.P. Lovecraft's tales of the tentacled Elder God Cthulhu and his pantheon of alien deities were initially written for the pulp magazines of the 1920s and '30s. These astonishing tales blend elements of horror, science fiction and cosmic terror that are as powerful today as they were when they were first published.

This electronic tome collects together Lovecraft's tales of terror, including the complete Cthulhu Mythos cycle, just the way they were originally published. It will introduce a whole new generation of readers to Lovecraft's fiction, as well as being a must-buy for those fans who want all his work in a single, definitive volume.

    The tales are good, but avoid this book

    HP Lovecraft is a master of horror with a great, evocative writing style. He came up with the genre of "cosmic horror", in which the insignificance of humans in the cosmic order of things and the inability of the human brain to understand all of reality are central. However, HP Lovecraft died childless. The copyright to his work fell to an aunt and then to cousins who had no great interest in his work. As a result, the copyright for his work has long expired, and so the tales collected in this book are in the public domain. Many companies compile these and publish them in physical or digital forms. That's fine, but there is no reason why anyone should pay the asked price for this particular compilation, which is absurdly high for a compilation of public domain stories. Find other compilations, it will be the same work, but will cost much, much less.
