Longtime fans as well as those new to his work will rejoice at this excellent collection of Lovecraft’s horror short stories and novellas set outside the mythical town of Arkham. Thanks to Leslie Klinger’s many annotations, readers are immersed in the history, locations and cultural morays of the time providing a better understanding of Lovecraft’s work. The book itself is beautifully produced and include period drawings along with several photos that go with the annotations. "Celephais" is a ...more

I ended up dipping in and out of this book, stopping just long enough to read one or two stories before skimming a ways forward and dropping into another. Victor LaValle's introduction and the annotations themselves are sterling and pithy and beautifully formatted, all the things you could want from annotations. I appreciated LaValle's discussion of Lovecraft's problematic themes and content, which has justifiably received much criticism in the last decade. Honestly, as an object held in the ...more

the score is mostly for the book itself because it's gorgeous. If I scored it on how I felt while reading the book it would be much lower because it was way too textbook-like. Really wonderful otherwise though.

Contains both some of Lovecraft's best stories and some of his worst, but is invaluable for the annotations and for Victor LaValle's introduction.

The annotations and illustrations lead me think more highly of the stories than they deserve. My favorite stories were "The Horror at Red Hook," and "The Cats of Ulthar."

Howard Phillips Lovecraft, of Providence, Rhode Island, was an American author of horror, fantasy and science fiction.

Lovecraft's major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror: life is incomprehensible to human minds and the universe is fundamentally alien. Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity. Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a
