Overview

A chilling collection of classic terror tales by the man Stephen King calls "the 20th century horror story's dark and baroque prince." Includes three stories that became hit horror films--"From Beyond," "The Lurking Fear" and "Reanimator." From Beyond & 16 Other Macabre Masterpieces gathers seventeeen of H. P. Lovecraft's most chilling creations. Gathered in this exclusive eBook collection are: "The Music of Erich Zann," "Beyond the Wall of Sleep," "The Tomb," "The Statement of Randolph Carter," "Dagon," "The Lurking Fear," "The Doom that Came to Sarnath," "From Beyond," "The Temple," "The Cats of Ulthar," "The Moon-Bog," "The White Ship," "Arthur Jermyn," "Nyarlathotep," "The Picture in the House," "The Transition of Juan Romero," and "Herbert West: Reanimator." To read these scarifying stories is to discover why The Reader's Guide to Fantasy hails Lovecraft as "the successor to Poe." Here are all the horror meister's celebrated preoccupations: death and decay, the horrors of inbreeding, family doom, stupendous, cyclopean evil, and shadowy, malevolent, near-omnipotent forces that could without effort extinguish all life on earth. A must-read for horror fans, selected and introduced by editor/critic Jean Marie Stine. Cover design: J.L. "Frankie" Hill

Meet the Author

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937), commonly known as H. P. Lovecraft, was an American author known for his works of horror fiction (many of which have been adapted into movies). Having died in obscure poverty, he achieved posthumous fame for his books and stories. Today, he is best known for his take on The Call of Cthulhu. Because of his influence on contemporary writers and the development of his unique style known as "Lovecraftian," he is often compared to Edgar Allan Poe.

This book has a good mix of non-Cthulhu Lovecraft stories to offer.
