This is the ultimate Lovecraft collection! I have tried other collections that cost the same or more and none match up to this edition. This is flat out the best Lovecraft edition available for the Nook. The table of contents works flawlessly and each story is in chronological order instead of alphabetical order. The advantage of this is that you get a true feel of the growth and change of Lovecraft through the years. This edition contains 2744 nook pages and loads immediately and runs smoothly. It can be read in small doses since many of his works are short stories. Cthulhu Chick mentions her website and that you can get this there for free. The advantage of buying it here is that it can be accessed through your "library" on multiple devices instantaneously. Sideloading an ebook is time consuming, must be done on each individual reading device you want the book on, and those books never show up in your "library". I also feel strongly that this collection is of such excellent quality that Cthulhu Chick deserves the attention and the money for putting this together. H.P. Lovecraft is a literary genius and this is the best collection available for your nook. Stop reading my review and start reading this book. Thanks Cthulhu Chick. Buy this right now!

Easy format makes for an easier read.

Love the format...You can pick a specific chapter say chapter 17 on the content page and then it redirects you to that chapter instead of flipping pages so that you can start reading immediately. It is a excellent read with various mysteries and horror stories. You can ...
Love the format...You can pick a specific chapter say chapter 17 on the content page and then it redirects you to that chapter instead of flipping pages so that you can start reading immediately. It is a excellent read with various mysteries and horror stories. You can be nine or thirty-nine and the stories are still just as applicable. This is a book that I highly recommend if you like/liked anything by R.L. Stine (i.e. Goosebumps) or Stephen King.

    Why is this not free?

    Cthulhuchick (the listed publisher) offers this free on her own site. Why do we have to pay for it here?

    Very good book.

    I had heard about Lovecraft's books for years and know that many authors today reference his works. They base there writings on his style. I enjoy reading his work, good writing and subjects. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that all the works are short stories. More like dime novel's. I was hoping for longer reads.

    Great Collection!

    At this time I have only read a few of them, but this collection is a must have for any e-book. I like how they are separated chronologically and organized so you can read one, skip around and skip to any story you want at any time. H.P. is a very compelling horror writer that makes you want to keep the pages turning until you are done and then read the next. His stories just put me in the mind of the characters and take you along for the ride.

    Great collection -- well formatted, and NO TYPOs!

    I don't think I want to comment on Lovecraft -- he's a complicated subject. But I really appreciate CthulhuChick collecting all of these stories and making them available in one affordable ebook that has been carefully checked and edited, so that it's not full of errors and misprintings. Easy to read, and easy to find your way around in the book. It's interesting to read the stories in the order they were written.
