Description
Few writers can evoke such nightmarish visions as H. P. Lovecraft--and few of his stories are as chilling as these canonical tales of terror. "H. P. Lovecraft has yet to be surpassed as the twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale."--Stephen King At the Mountains of Madness: Lovecraft's indisputable masterpiece. In the barren, windswept Antarctic, an expedition uncovers strange fossils . . . and mind-blasting terror. The Shunned House: Two men investigate the mystery of a sinister old house: the scene of unexplained deaths and weird apparitions. The Dreams in the Witch-House: In the crooked bedroom of an ancient abode, a mathematician's feverish studies lead him to a dark discovery. The Statement of Randolph Carter: The lone survivor of an unspeakable incident, Randolph Carter relates his brush with the underworld. These milestones of the macabre will compel you to read on, even as you attempt to flee the waking nightmares they inspire. At the Mountains of Madness and Other Tales of Terror is a master class in supernatural terror.

display_description Introduction by China Miéville
Long acknowledged as a master of nightmarish visions, H. P. Lovecraft established the genuineness and dignity of his own pioneering fiction in 1931 with his quintessential work of supernatural horror, At the Mountains of Madness. The deliberately told and increasingly chilling recollection of an Antarctic expedition's uncanny discoveries–and their encounter with untold menace in the ruins of a lost civilization–is a milestone of macabre literature.
This exclusive new edition, presents Lovecraft's masterpiece in fully restored form, and includes his acclaimed scholarly essay "Supernatural Horror in Literature." This is essential reading for every devotee of classic terror.
