About 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.

With it's special metallic ink illustration, high-quality leather binding and free Cthulhu poster, this renewed Collector's Edition is no doubt one of the best Lovecraft books out there.
Really impressed with this edition and it's stories. I bought this for my brother, while checking the book for any problems after it arrived I found myself drawn into one of the stories, I ended up reading the whole thing myself before wrapping it for christmas! It contains stories related to Lovecraft's C'thulhu mythos. I must admit, I didn't realize there were any more than the most popular two i'd read as a teen. The book itself is gorgeous, with gold gilt pages and gold detailing on parts of the cover. The one I bought came with a poster on the back inside cover. Want to buy one for myself now!
