H.P. Lovecraft fused supernatural horror with visionary science fiction; this volume collects together all of these writings. This is an exquisitely designed edition that features a silk-ribbon bookmark, distinctive gilt edging & marbled endpapers. This is the perfect gift for book lovers and an artful addition to any home library. In the 1920s and '30s, H.P. Lovecraft pioneered a new type of fiction that fused elements of supernatural horror with the concepts of visionary science fiction.

Lovecraft's tales of cosmic horror revolutionised modern horror fiction and earned him the reputation of the most influential American writer of weird tales since Edgar Allan Poe. H.P. Lovecraft: The Complete Fiction collects for the first time in a single volume all of Lovecraft's groundbreaking fictions: "The Call of Cthulhu," "The Dreams in the Witch House," "The Haunter of the Dark," "At the Mountains of Madness," "The Shadow out of Time," "The Shadow over Innsmouth," the full-length novels The Case of Charles Dexter Ward and The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath, and many others. The book is exquisitely designed with bonded-leather bindings, distinctive gilt edging and an attractive silk-ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectible, the "Leatherbound Classics" series offers hours of pleasure to readers young and old and is an indispensable cornerstone for any home library.

About the Author

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 series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human-nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore. His works were deeply pessimistic and cynical, challenging the values of the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Christianity. Lovecraft's protagonists usually achieve the mirror-opposite of traditional gnosis and mysticism by momentarily glimpsing the horror of ultimate reality.

Although Lovecraft's readership was limited during his life, his reputation has grown over the decades. The adjective "Lovecraftian" is now applied to any story which emphasises any of Lovecraft's themes of cosmic horror or fear of the unknowable. He is now commonly regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th Century, exerting widespread and indirect influence, and frequently compared to Edgar Allan Poe.
