This 2011 'bonded leather' edition of Lovecraft's Complete Fiction, thanks Martin Anderson for help on the texts, and after comparing his long errata list of the 2008 edition, I found they were indeed corrected... (as stores had told me the opposite was likely, I thought to let others know who value this author)... This is an attractive and durably bound book... as to the 'bonded leather', it is mostly a tasteful synthetic alternative to dead animal skin, which may be a plus for some... H.

The Misspellings of Madness

It seemed like a very good deal in the store at $20, but if you want to be swept away to fantastic realms, DON'T buy this edition! No sooner do I begin to really get into a story than I'm rudely jerked back to reality by extremely obvious and irritating typos, misspellings, and grammar errors! The entire book is rife with glaring mistakes that should have been caught by any semi-competent proofreader. It really diminishes the quality of one's reading experience. What's more, the (very lovely) binding is regrettably quite shoddily made. I've only owned this book for a few weeks, and the other day the thin layer of photographic foil on the front began spontaneously to peel and flake off! Also, to agree with some of the comments below, it is definitely not leather. Which is completely fine; I don't require my reading material to be wrapped in dead cow, but they should probably be clearer in their product description since they do say "leather."
Do go and buy some other Lovecraft collection, because the stories are wonderful, but if typos and misspellings bad enough to actually change the meaning of sentences (e.g. snakes "writing" instead of "writhing") are going to disturb your reading experience, THIS IS NOT THE ONE FOR YOU.

    DO NOT BUY! THE CURRENT EDITION IS MISPRINTED! An entire chapter

    DO NOT BUY! THE CURRENT EDITION IS MISPRINTED! An entire chapter on the author is missing from the book. I went to the store to try to exchange it, but we discover that ALL the copies they had were missing the section. Huge bummer, I am not sure what I'm going to do at this point. If you haven't bought this already or care about having the section, you might be better off waiting awhile and seeing if it gets fixed.

    I did not receive the product.

    Has been 1 month and 1 day and I still did not receive the product. I am an old customer and always received my orders in time, now BN is saying that besides the 4-14 business days I should wait 1-2 weeks, this is outrageous, there is no information in the website about that. I ordered at least more 7 times since the order of this product and just the 1-4 business days arrived. In chat support they tell me nothing.

    Extremely disappointed.

    We made this order on Nov 3 2013. No product was delivered to date.

    We reordered this product again on Nov 28. Still no product.

    We are extremely disappointed in your lack of service. I can understand something mis sent once but twice ?

    I could not recommend your service to anyone at this point.

    Where is our book ? Did you actually send it ?

    I hope you print this review.
