Edited with and introduction and notes by S.T. Joshi 'His prescience and novelty seem more and more remarkable Nicholas Lezard, Guardian Hailed as the 'greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale' by Stephen King, H.P. Lovecraft is acknowledged as a master of the fantastic and the macabre. This companion volume to The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories brings together a dozen tales - from his early pieces 'Under the Pyramids' (originally ghostwritten for Harry Houdini) and the haunting story 'The Music of Erich Zann' (which Lovecraft ranked as one of his favourites), to more fully developed works such as 'At the Mountains of Madness', where an Antarctic explorer discovers alien creatures, and 'The Dunwich Horror', which takes us into the backwoods of Lovecraft's native New England to confront our darkest fears.

Author Biography

H. P. Lovecraft was born in 1890 in Providence, Rhode Island, where he lived most of his life. Frequent illnesses in his youth disrupted his schooling, but Lovecraft gained a wide knowledge of many subjects through independent reading and study. He wrote many essays and poems early in his career, but gradually focused on the writing of horror stories, after the advent in 1923 of the pulp magazine Weird Tales, to which he contributed most of his fiction. His relatively small corpus of fiction - three short novels and about sixty short stories - has nevertheless exercised a wide influence on subsequent work in the field, and he is regarded as the leading twentieth-century American author of supernatural fiction. H. P. Lovecraft died in Providence in 1937
