H.P. LOVECRAFT’S BOOK OF THE SUPERNATURAL: 20 CLASSIC TALES OF THE MACABRE CHOSEN BY THE MASTER HIMSELF

Edited by Stephen Jones

“For anyone interested even faintly in good horror writing, what we have here is pure gold: Lovecraft’s own selection of the best the genre has to offer, along with his comments on the individual stories. Talk about the horse’s mouth! This book is long overdue.” –Peter Straub

“Lovecraft opened the way for me, as he had done for others before me.”

–Stephen King

“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear.”

–H.P. Lovecraft

For the first time in book form, World Fantasy Award-winning editor Stephen Jones proudly presents twenty classic tales recommended by H.P. Lovecraft in his famous essay, “Supernatural Horror in Literature.”

One of the most important writers of the twentieth century, H.P. Lovecraft himself opens this collection with a fascinating foreword in which he gives his own advice on how to successfully write weird fiction. And each story is prefaced by Lovecraft’s own opinions and insights into the work.

Every fan of modern horror will find here an opportunity to rediscover the roots of the genre with some of the most terrifying stories ever imagined.
