Tales

By H. P. (Howard Phillips) Lovecraft, 1890-1937

A twentieth-century successor to Edgar Allan Poe as the master of “weird fiction,” H. P. Lovecraft adapted the conventions of horror stories and science fiction to express a vision cosmic in its ramifications and fearsome in its pessimistic view of human destiny. Lovecraft blurred the distinction between reality and nightmare, developing his own mythology in which encounters with ancient extraterrestrial intelligences wreak havoc on humans who then begin to glimpse “terrifying vistas of reality, and our frightful position therein.” Moving from New England towns haunted by occult pasts to Antarctic wastes hiding appalling secrets, his fiction exerts a dread fascination. This volume brings together twenty-two tales, including “The Music of Erich Zann,” “Pickman’s Model,” “The Rats in the Walls,” “The Call of Cthulhu,” “The Colour Out of Space,” “At the Mountains of Madness,” “The Shadow Over Innsmouth,” and “The Shadow Out of Time.”
