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 handsome leatherbound tome collects together the very best of 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, highly attractive volume.

  1. Ett hyggligt urval
    Martinus, 24 januari 2011

    Ett hyggligt urval bestående av flera av Lovecrafts mest kända verk i en snygg förpackning -- men varför har man inte använt de rättade texterna? Vissa klassiska gamla fel är borta, men andra (t. ex. "an ant" på s. 819) är kvar.
    Med andra ord, det man har lagt på ytan har man sparat in på innehållet.

    De tre volymerna från Penguin finns visserligen bara i pocket, men de är utrustade med matnyttiga noter och innehåller de rättade texterna.

  2. En bättre samling får man leta efter...
    Enigma (Helsingborg), 12 januari 2011

    En härlig och mäktig samling noveller och romaner, skrivna av en av skräckens absoluta mästare, Lovecraft!
    Den här tunga boken samlar de flesta av hans bästa verk. Den är vackert illustrerad och lätt en av de finaste på marknaden.

    Här i hittar du sådana noveller som "the Call of Cthulhu", "the Colour out of space" och "the shadow over Innsmouth" men även tyngre verk som "At the mountains of madness"

    Sjunk ner i fåtöljen, ta en varm kopp thé och låt boken föra dig bort ti... Läs hela recensionen

Övrig information

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937) is probably the most important and influential author of supernatural fiction of the 20th century. A life-long resident of Providence, R.I., many of his tales are set in the fear-haunted towns of an imaginary area of Massachusetts, or in the cosmic vistas that exist beyond space and time. Since his untimely death, he has become acknowledged as a master of fantasy fiction, and a mainstream American writer second only to Edgar Allan Poe, while his relatively small body of work has influenced countless imitators and formed the basis of a world-wide industry of books, games and movies based on his concepts. Stephen Jones has 100 books to his name as writer or editor, and dozens of awards in the horror and dark fantasy fields. He is is one of Britain's most acclaimed authorities on horror fiction and film.
