The long forgotten craft of wordscape. Truest encapsulation of all that glitters. Lovecraft provides the reader with a multilayered, multifaceted portal into places one is regretful to leave. This is horror without the McSplatter. This gives ample pause for nostalgia. This one is a keeper.

Absolutely amazing. The first book I read of Lovecraft several months back and it sparked my interest of the unknown and horrible things that this man had in mind. Im on my fourth lovecraft book now, and it all began with this one right here. Just utterly remarkable, from the statement of randolph carter to the amazing Call of Cthulhu, this is a must read for those who wish to venture into a new vista of horror that is yet to be surpassed by anyone.

Just finished reading this book and again I am amazed at Lovecraft's evolution as a writer. The selections cover Lovecraft's earlier efforts, which are OK, and include quite a bit of his groundbreaking later works like Shadow Over Innsmouth, The Color Out of Space, and the title tale. Lovecraft was among the first to kick out the ghosts and jangling chains of Victorian horror and slowly added science fiction elements into the mix. The result has influenced many writers since. By the way, is it just me or is the movie 'Alien' about as Lovecraftian as a film can get?

I came upon Lovecraft's stuff only briefly knowing a little bit about what he wrote about. Bored with 'normal' fantasy books, I decided to give this a go. I am definitely pleased and have a new author to add to my list of favorites. Lovecraft's stuff is not only artistically inspiring--it will probe the boundaries of your imagination.

I enjoyed just about every story in this book, particularly 'The Outsider' (a phenomenally strange prose-poem) and of course 'The Call of Cthulhu', Lovecraft's most famous story. This stuff is imaginative and colorful and, of course, downright creepy. Lovecraft's prose is often criticized for being extravagant, but most of the time here it simply provides an appropriate atmosphere of gothic horror. I'd recommend this book (or just about any Lovecraft anthology) to the curious reader of speculative fiction.

As a metallica fan i found this quite interesting and a knowledge filled insight on what inspired the instrumental 'The Call Of The Ktulu' on their ride the lightning album.

I have this book for two years without reading it. Last week I saw a documentary on CHILLER pertaining to Lovecraft. They spoke about the Shadow over Innsmouth story. I decided to give it a try, so I picked the book up to read the short story and I haven't put this book down since. This book is creepy and I love every minute of it. Very detailed and interesting.
