This volume collects twenty of Lovecraft`s best-known horror stories, including several that laid the foundation for the Cthulhu Mythos, a pattern of myth and lore that represents the high point of his writing and once of the most original contributions to fantastic fiction of the past century. Selections include: "Pickman`s Model" The monsters in Richard Upton Pickman`s paintings were so hideously lifelike you might easily believe that they had been painted from real life. "The Rats in the Walls" The nightly scramblings of foraging rats in the walls were disturbing enough - but what horror did their destination belowground suggest? "The Call of Cthulhu" An island risen from the depths of the Pacific Ocean houses a denizen whose emergence in our world portends the end of life as we know it. "At the Mountains of Madness" In the wastes of Antarctica, an exploration team discovers the remnants of an inconceivably ancient pre-human civilization - and evidence that whatever wiped it out may still be at large. H.P. Lovecraft: Great Tales of Horror is your passport to unique worlds of wonder and terror as only one of the greatest horror writers of all time could imagine them.
