Collected in this volume are spine-tingling tales showing us that below the ground and at the top of mountain peaks lurk nameless gods and ghouls, powerful and horrific.  In cemeteries and desert wastes and swampy bogs, the evidence of past civilizations remains waiting to be uncovered, ominously portending mankind’s own inglorious future conclusion.  Even more disconcerting in H. P. Lovecraft’s fictional world is that one need not even leave home to come face-to-face with the cataclysmic revelation of man’s insignificance.  Monsters not only skulk in underground crypts and exotic foreign lands, but swarm all around us, just out of sight.


Among the creepy tales included in this volume are “He,” “The Moon-Bog,” “The Other Gods,” “Polaris.”

About the Author

Howard Phillips Lovecraft was born on August 20, 1890, in Providence, Rhode Island. When Lovecraft was three, his father was admitted to an insane asylum, and by the time he was eight he suffered his own “near-breakdown.” The year before that, he had begun writing short horror tales.
