Item Details

Penguin Putnam
Frequently imitated and widely influential, H. P. Lovecraft reinvented the horror genre for the twentieth century. Discarding witches and ghosts, he envisaged mankind as an outpost of dwindling sanity in a chaotic and malevolent universe. S. T. Joshi makes his selection from the early tales of nightmares and madness to the overpowering cosmic terror of 'The Call of Cthulhu'. This is the first paperback edition to include the definitive corrected texts of these classics of American fantasy fiction.

Brilliant tales by the master of cosmic horror. Lovecraft created a sub-genre and the central story of this anthology, "The Call of Cthulhu," inspired many others - Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, and Mike Mignola, to name a few.

A must-read for any lovers of horror, pulp adventure, Nietzschean perspective on human insignificance, or tentacles!
