A pioneer of weird fiction, H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) holds a place with Poe and King in the vanguard of great American horror writers. This anthology collects five of H.P. Lovecraft’s creepiest short stories of the undead:
“Herbert West: Reanimator” was written over the period of October 1921–June 1922 and serialized in the February–July 1922 issues of amateur publication Home Brew.
“Pickman’s Model” was written in September of 1926 and originally published in Weird Tales magazine’s October 1927 issue.
“Cool Air” was written in March of 1926 and originally published in the short-lived periodical Tales of Magic and Mystery, March 1928 issue.
“The Thing on the Doorstep” was written in August of 1933 and originally published in the January 1937 issue of Weird Tales.
“The Shunned House” was written October 16–19, 1924 and originally published twelve years later in Weird Tales, October 1937 issue, after Lovecraft’s death in March of the same year.
This edition was adapted from various print and digital story versions in the public domain. It maintains the unabridged content and spelling of the original magazine publications, though some minimal punctuation and diacritical usage has been modernized. Herbert West: Reanimator and Other Tales was published for the Supernatural Fox Sisters’ Supernatural History Series—collections of books and artifact reproductions focusing on places and events in supernatural history.
