'His prescience and novelty seem more and more remarkable

Hailed as the 'greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale' by Stephen King, H.P. Lovecraft is acknowledged as a master of the fantastic and the macabre.
This companion volume to The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories brings together a dozen tales - from his early pieces 'Under the Pyramids' (originally ghostwritten for Harry Houdini) and the haunting story 'The Music of Erich Zann' (which Lovecraft ranked as one of his favourites), to more fully developed works such as 'At the Mountains of Madness', where an Antarctic explorer discovers alien creatures, and 'The Dunwich Horror', which takes us into the backwoods of Lovecraft's native New England to confront our darkest fears.
