Chillingly weird tales...

Edited, and with an introduction by AUGUST DERLETH

A modern master of horror is becoming famous, ironically enough, after his death. Howard P. Lovecraft, little known before he died in 1937, is taking his place now with the great tellers of weird tales. If you have read and shuddered over the macabre stories of Poe, of M. R. James, of Bram Stoker, you will appreciate this unique collection of Lovecraft's tales, published for the first time in a popular edition. But let him speak for himself:

"It was the faces, Eliot, those accursed faces, that leered and slavered out of the canvas with the very breath of fife! By God, man, I verily believe they were alive! That nauseous wizard had waked the fires of hell in pigment, and his brush had been a nightmare-spawning wand." From Pickmaris Model.

"So I say that I have not murdered Edward Derby. Rather I have avenged him, and in so doing purged the earth of a horror whose survival might have loosed untold terrors on all mankind." From The Thing on the Doorstep.

"I know not where I was born, save that the castle was infinitely old and infinitely horrible, full of dark passages and having high ceilings where the eye could find only cobwebs and shadows. The stones in the crumbling corridors seemed always hideously damp, and there was an accursed smell everywhere, as of the piled-up corpses of dead generations." From The Outsider.
