This book is truly wonderful. The terms Lovecraft uses are applicable today: intangible miasma, mongrel riff-raff...what fun!

And if you want to insult someone who isn't well read, say that person has The Innsmouth Look and walk away. I did this once to a fish-like person who pushed ahead of me at a deli counter and he called after me, "What does that mean?" Pure bliss.

I had always wanted to read Lovecraft, but never did until i got this book. 22 stories. How much I liked each story varied considerably, but there were many i loved. Easy to see how many modern authors and scriptwriters have been influenced by this master of suspense and horror. I guarantee at least one of these stories ( some of them VERY short and easy to quickly read to get a feel for the author ) will impress you if you like horror.

A beautiful deluxe collection of all of Loveecraft's best short fiction. Lovecraft published his creepy fiction in the pulp magazones of his time. I'm sure he never imagined such reverential treatment for that work. It is a pleasure to read his work so loveingly preserved.

As for the work itself, if you feel drawn to the unameable dread that stirs in the darkest part of night when sounds emanate from between the walls, Lovecraft practically created the genre.

Who'da thunk it!? The old mad Arab Abdul Alhazred himself on acid free paper, in a sturdy library binding and with a learned dissertation included!! Despite all that do NOT, under any circumstances, read this alone in an old dark house on a dark and stormy night! Be warned thou spawn of Cthulhu!
