Book description
“Var upphör vansinnet och var tar verkligheten vid? Är det möjligt att till och med mina senaste farhågor är ren villfarelse?” Något har hänt i den lilla hamnstaden Innsmouth. Husen står igenbommade, fallfärdiga och maskätna, men det hörs sällsamma ljud bakom de tjocka träplankorna; hasande steg, gutturala läten och omänskliga röster. Stanken av rutten fisk blåser in från havet. Vad var det egentligen som hände på Devil Reef, vad gjorde kapten Obed Marsh där? Det berättas om ohyggliga saker. Folk har försvunnit spårlöst, det ryktas om människooffer och avgudadyrkan. Vem vet vilka gudar som nu vaknat i det mörka havsdjupet? "Skuggan över Innsmouth" anses vara en av Lovecrafts absolut främsta skräckberättelser. Här presenteras den för första gången i en textkritisk utgåva, med författarens egna anteckningar, strukna utkast och kommentarer. Utgåvan innehåller dessutom Lovecrafts sällan publicerade självbiografi "Some Notes on a Nonentity" samt hans historik över den fruktade "Necronomicon". Detta är en bok för alla som älskar skräcklitteratur och en ovärderlig skatt för oss som älskar Lovecraft.

Where ends the madness and where does reality at? Is it possible that even my recent concerns is pure delusion? "Something has happened in the small port town of Innsmouth. The houses are boarded up, dilapidated and wormy, but it sounds strange sound behind the thick wooden boards; shuffling steps, guttural noises and inhuman voices. The stench of rotten fish blowing in from the sea. What really happened on Devil Reef, what did Captain Obed Marsh there? It told of hideous things. People have disappeared without trace, rumored human sacrifice and idolatry. Who knows what the gods now woken in the dark depths of the sea? "The Shadow over Innsmouth" is considered one of Lovecraft's foremost horror stories. Here are presented for the first time in a critical edition, with the author's own notes, underlined text and comments. The edition also contains Lovecraft rarely published autobiography, "Some Notes on a nonentity" as well as his history of the dreaded "Necronomicon". This is a book for anyone who loves horror literature and an invaluable treasure for us who love Lovecraft.
