About the Author

Howard Philips Lovecraft (1890-1937) is probably the most important and influential author of supernatural fiction of the 20th century. A life-long resident of Providence, R.I., many of his tales are set in the fear-haunted towns of an imaginary area of Massachusetts, or in the cosmic vistas that exist beyond space and time. Since his untimely death, he has become acknowledged as a master of fantasy fiction, and a mainstream American writer second only to Edgar Allan Poe, while his relatively small body of work has influenced countless imitators and formed the basis of a world-wide industry of books, games and movies based on his concepts.

Preposterous, overblown, absurd in every way - yet with an originality that looks more powerful and convincing each time I dip into it.--PHILIP PULLMAN
You need to read him - he's where the darkness starts--NEIL GAIMAN
