Overview

A complete short novel, AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS is a tale of terror unilke any other. The Barren, windswept interior of the Antarctic plateau was lifeless—or so the expedition from Miskatonic University thought. Then they found the strange fossils of unheard-of creatures...and the carved stones tens of millions of years old...and, finally, the mind-blasting terror of the City of the Old Ones. Three additional strange tales, written as only H.P. Lovecraft can write, are also included in this macabre collection of the strange and the weird.

An Antarctic expedition by Miskatonic University researchers unearths evidence of an ancient nonhuman civilization on the Barren, the supposedly lifeless windswept interior of the Antarctic plateau. When the researchers find strange fossils of unfamiliar creatures and ancient carved stones, their discoveries lead to horrors buried beneath the mountains that cost the scientists more than they expect. Narrator William Roberts gives an appropriately grave and dramatic reading. VERDICT Lovecraft's intentionally archaic and elaborate style, at its peak here, will appeal to fans of Edgar Allan Poe and his other 19th-century gothic predecessors.—Jason Puckett, Georgia State Univ., Atlanta
