H. P. Lovecraft has yet to be surpassed as the 20th century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale.--Stephen King

The most important tales of the godfather of the modern horror genre--a master who influenced the works of a generation of writers including Stephen King and Anne Rice--are gathered in one volume by National Book Award-winning author Joyce Carol Oates.

Combining the 19th-century gothic sensibility of Edgar Allan Poe with a daring internal vision, Lovecraft's tales foretold a psychically troubled world to come. Set in a meticulously wrought, historically grounded New England landscape, his harrowing stories explore the collapse of sanity beneath the weight of chaotic events. Lovecraft's universe is a frightening shadow world were reality and nightmare intertwine, and redemption can come only from below. For aficionados and a new generation of 21st-century readers, Tales of H. P. Lovecraft is a classic not to be missed.
