Description

Venture at your own risk into a realm where the sun sinks into oblivion-and all that is unholy, unearthly, and unspeakable rises. These rare, hard-to-find collaborations of cosmic terror are back in print, including

- Wentworth's Day A fellow figures his debt to a dead man is null and void, until he discovers just how terrifying interest rates can be.

- The Shuttered Room A sophisticated gentleman must settle his grandfather's estate, only to find that the house shelters dark secrets.

- The Dark Brotherhood A beautiful woman and her companion meet the likes of Edgar Allan Poe, in a tale as terrifying as anything Poe himself ever created.

- Innsmouth Clay A sculptor returns from Paris to create a statue not entirely of this world-and not at all under his control.

- Witches' Hollow A new schoolteacher puts his soul in peril while trying to save one of his students from a ravenous creature.


About the Author

Almost completely ignored by the mainstream press during his lifetime, H. P. Lovecraft has since come to be recognized as one of the greatest writers of classic horror, on a par with Edgar Allan Poe, Lovecraft's mentor. H. P. Lovecraft's work has been translated into more than a dozen languages, his tales adapted for film, television, and comic books, and he has been the subject of more scholarly study than any other writer of horror fiction save Poe.
