Lovecraft Tales SIGNED

LOVECRAFT TALES.

by H.P. Lovecraft.

Edited with Extensive Notes by Peter Sraub.

FREE SIGNED Bookplate by Peter Straub!

OVERVIEW:  This volume brings together 22 tales, the very best of Howard Phillips Lovecrafts fiction. Early stories such as "The Outsider," "The Music of Erich Zann," "Herbert West - Reanimator," and "The Lurking Fear" demonstrate Lovecrafts uncanny ability to blur the distinction between reality and nightmare, sanity and madness, the human and the non-human. "The Horror at Red Hook" and "He" reveal the fascination and revulsion Lovecraft felt for New York City; "Pickmans Model" uncovers the frightening secret behind an artists work; "The Rats in the Walls" is a terrifying descent into atavistic horror; and "The Colour Out of Space" explores the eerie impact of a meteorite on a remote Massachusetts valley.

If you spend enough time in Lovecrafts lonely landscapes, fear really does develop: not the fear that you will come across unearthly creatures, but the fear that you will come across little else. ...lonely, desperate and, yes, very, very scary. - The New York Times - Daniel Handler.

Starred Review. Now Lovecraft (1890–1937), the most important U.S. horror writer since Edgar Allan Poe and a big influence on nearly every major figure in the genre after his day, has been honored with a volume of his own in this prestigious series. Drawing from scholar S.T. Joshis definitive texts, Peter Straub, the bestselling author of In the Night Room, has selected 22 works of fiction, ranging from such traditional ghostly tales as "The Outsider" and "The Rats in the Walls" to such lengthy cosmic narratives as "The Call of Cthulhu" and "At the Mountains of Madness." This edition represents the latest scholarship, including a recently discovered missing passage from "The Shadow Out of Time" and a few new minor corrections... all the best fiction is here in a book sure to help reinforce Lovecrafts place in the American literary canon. - Publishers Weekly.

Hardcover, 2005 Library of America, Fine / Fine, with signed bookplate by Peter Straub. In protective bookcover.
