Lovecraft is more than just the creator of horror fiction, to this day he remains the best. You can't go wrong anything written by this man. I have yet to read a story that I've disliked. ( )

    Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345483332, Mass Market Paperback)

    Descend into the nerve-shattering realm of America’s master of horror, H. P. Lovecraft–to a dank place where gloomy maelstroms await the unwary, where the unnatural is surpassed only by the unspeakable, and where all pleasure is perverse. Take a chance. . . . All you can lose is your sanity.

    The Doom That Came to Sarnath–The magnificent city had wealth beyond measure, but no riches could save it from a ghastly day of reckoning.

    The Shunned House–He vowed to rid the odious structure of the brooding horror that clung to it, but evil would not go gently.

    The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath–Desperate to understand his tormenting vision, one man begins a forbidden and nightmarish journey.

    The Tomb–The old Hyde family crypt held a gruesome attraction for a boy, until he communed with the dead and learned their secrets.

    The Shadow Out of Time–The quest to understand the devouring force that once possessed a scholar leads a man to the other side of the world, where all will be revealed in one hideous, unholy night.

    PLUS ELEVEN OTHER MACABRE TALES OF PURE TERROR
