36 DREADFUL POEMS OF COSMIC HORRORS
In H.P. Lovecraft's famous poetry cycle, an occultist steals an ancient tome of forbidden lore—but when he begins to read, it takes on a nightmarish journey throughout space, time, and alternate realities. Each dark poem reveals a new horrifying dream-vision, each filled with Lovecraft's signature blend of cosmic horror and alienation.
Also included is Lovecraft's incomplete short story The Book, where he tried to translate this weird poetry cycle into prose—but, unfortunately, never finished.
