Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up—This is a monster story meant to chill readers; with a dozen new illustrations, the chill arrives faster. The horrible creature of the title is a Pharaohlike figure that draws the darkest impulses and urges from any creation and drains it of all sanity and life. Nyarlathotep releases monsters from within himself as well as those from without and pretty much destroys the narrator with a slow but insistent madness. Readers unfamiliar with Lovecraft's writing will have an easier time deciphering this nightmare through the graphic images, which give jarring color to the dreadful events. This is a powerful, fearful tale that will speak to sophisticated readers and to teens already drawn to Lovecraft, Poe, Stephen King, and their ilk.—Will Marston, Berkeley Public Library, CA

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.
